Close call with Funtana WMV Video

Recommended Posts

Didn't realize how close we had come until I got home and was importing the video. Good thing I record on the ground, I wouldn't have had a tape to look at if we had hit. The camera is a Panasonic cx-161 mounted underneath the front of a senior telemaster with a YS .63 supercharged 4 stroke for power. I have always liked being able to see the prop.

Enjoy,

Matt

Good steady image for an IC powered plane. How did you mount your four stroke, and is your camera shock mounted in any way? Any problems with vibration?

Just mounted the small board camera in a radioshack project box, the box is mounted underneath the airplane with about 5 layers of sticky foam in the front to get the down angle and 2 lays of tape at the back. Then I used some tape to make sure the whole thing didn't fall off. I hadn't planned on flying that day so I had to throw everything together the night before until about 3 am.

This confirms my experience. A firm mount to the airframe, usually just velcro, is all it takes. Shock absorbing motor mounts for IC installations help too.
