Morning Fog

Last Saturday, it was very foggy in the morning.
Not knowing how the video-system would react to the fog, I waited until the tick fog around the airfield was gone before I launched my plane. I was hoping there would still be some fog left to capture... While most of the fog was gone, the visibility was not very good, but I found some low clouds about 1Km away.
It looks like the humidity had a bad influence on the video link.

I like your videos with your co-pilot and other things you have done to the
plane they just look Good ! Have you ever though about this.

Put a two axis Gyro on the camera servos . so the camera will stabilize the
video even more.

In the USA the News choppers use a Pan tilt and zoom camera mounted
on the bottom noise of the chopper. It has a Gyro built into the camera.
and they can fly the chopper with a lot of zoom and the video look like it
is from a roof top camera.

Just a thought !


Ho Ya
There camera has one neat feature . Lock on picture area. When they get
the frame they want they lock the frame and can fly in a circle/ up&down and the camera will stay locked on that frame.
