Headed out to get an additional Hero3 and some accessories. The extended life battery seems to be a must, I got less than an hour with it yesterday. I suppose that's understandable with the extra umph that's packed into it. The lens, when you have it in the widest mode seems much wider than the Hero 2. Next B25 mission I'm going to have these stuck all over the place, and in the subjects as well. Done correctly, that should provide clips to make a pretty cool film.

I can hardly wait to see Glenn's film from yesterday. Sitting backwards looping!? Definitely extra points for that!

What a goofy looking plane Jeff. Do you have to have a different rating to fly one like this compared to a normal twin engine ?

No, the flight characteristics are a bit different due to the "pusher" configuration the position of the engines, and the canard on the airframe, but the rating is the same as any twin turboprop. The Piaggio is fast, but it's fast at a premium price for a turboprop. They try to compensate for the higher initial price by selling potential owners on the reduced operating costs when compared to a jet, which has some merit. Being of Italian descent, I'm surprised that the design isn't sexier, it appears to be modeled after a catfish when viewed head on.

Fun Glenn!

Here's a screen capture from the Hero 3. My first impression is the footage is substantially better than the 2. Not necessarily much sharper, but some. More the 24p frame rate combined with overall quality of the capture. The imagery from the Hero 3 looks much more like it was captured with a higher end video camera. It definitely has a different look. More tests to come.


So that's why they call it a Hero cam...

Goofy looking? I've always thought the Avanti looks great though, granted, it's not your grandmother's executive twin turboprop.

But from the ground it sounds like a demented chainsaw on nitromethane. And you can quote me on that.

Jim: I was thinking more a Seal than a Catfish. And if you get video of one bouncing a lighting it might even look more so

Catfish, good one. Looks like it might be a little more quiet also.

I think that this previous post by Jim is illustrative of the catfish moniker.

Mining Alliance folders. I'd forgotten all the stuff I shot on the last day when it was as cold as a witch's tit and Jim and I bailed before noon. Here's Devil Dog: bombs away! Is that you peering out the side window behind the copilot's seat, Brian?

Plus the USAF Heritage Flight featuring the F-4, P-38 and F-86, a beautiful sight.

Like Steve, mining some older images. This is from NAFEC - a little Prowler love...

A little Mustang love from Alliance. J-A, can you identify this one?

Well Bill, it isn't quieter in or, and especially, out. Zim's description of the audio portion is right on the money. A Beech Starship sounds exactly the same, but the lines are much more aesthetic. That, however is in the eye of the beholder, the diversity of which makes the world go around.

Like the old Indian (am I allowed to say that?) Chief said, "If everyone thought like me, everyone would want my squaw!" We probably should have treated them a little differently and absorbed some of that wisdom.

I'm supposed to shoot a pair of them air to air in the Spring. The angle of choice is going to be from slightly above to minimize the aforementioned design characteristics. My guess is that they'll look fairly cool from that angle, in the right light. Heck, Moms Mabley can be made to look ok "in the right light".

Now see! This post was not a TOP a few seconds ago and now it is....uh, with no pic..............

A most excellent page of adds!

Hey, need a favor...

I swapped out my old SpyderPro 2 for a ColorMunki "Display" today and the Munki took my apparent brightness way, way down when it did its thing.

Anything about this shot look wonky? First edit with the new monitor profile...
Per the histogram in LR, nothing is blown or crushed and the whites are a few degrees warmer than dead neutral because it was early morning.

On the subject of A2A, one of my clients just bought a new BBJ and we're going to put it behind the 25 soon. Looking for sunset and a stable layer so we can play with the "Paul Bowen" effect. BBJ's with winglets really churn up the air.

No Jay, looks beautiful on my MacBook Pro. Wonderful capture btw. Look at all the cool stuff happening on that guy's wings. Isn't that an amazing thing to watch?

Thanks for applying your Mk1Mod0 eyeballs Jim.

BBJ in flight sounds like a dream man!
