Paul B's Backyard with Remote Helicopter Cam 10

Sickness from Paul B and a remote controlled helicopter camera!

"Went out and shot a little dirt jumping with Paul Basagoitia at his property, day and a half of shooting gave some great shots. Definitely plan on heading out again sometime soon.

Big thanks to Errol Kerr for operating the camera mount on the heli and Paul for trusting me to not cut his head off!"

    the camera is on a 3 axis gimble that is controlled by one person while another flies the heli. A lot of guys are using DSLR's capable of shooting HD video on camera ships these days because full on Video cameras are heavy and require a very large heli. RC heli's are my cheaper hobby, I'd like to build a camera ship soon for this very purpose.

    'nuther 'camera question, is the mount static (and the copter is tilting) or is the mount controlled (and the camera swivels while the copter flies straight)? Awesome footage (and riding)
