We finally got a GoPro Cam followed by a windy day! Have your volume control handy, it may be too loud. Enjoy...

Awesome day. Way to keep it upright!

I liked the video but can't take too much of that camera rocking. Image

Got a pict of your camera mount?

This was our first time trying the swinging mount. I need to figure out a way to put a damper on it so it doesn't swing so much but still tilts when we fly the hull.

I'm working on a mod to the mount that involves a small fluid damper from an R/C truck. Should help stop all the crazy swinging but still tilt to stay with the horizon. I'll post pics and video once it's operational.

Ok, the video is coming out waaaay smoother now with a simple R/C damper added to my swing mount

It still sort of stays with the horizon but no back and forth swing that was so bad in the first vid.

I'm out by myself this time and end up getting flipped over backwards in a gust, during a tack, never had that happen before...

Backwards was my first capsize. I have only ever done forwards or backwards. Yet to tip it sideways :)

Cool video, really like the mount.
