News Chopper 4


Well not quite, but with the small size of HD recording devices, you can mount them almost anywhere!

Here, I’ve strapped a Flip Mino HD recorder to a small helicopter for some aerial photography.

To protect my precious HD camera from my mediocre Heli pilot skillz and additional risk of crashing due to the added weight on this small bird, I wrapped it in bubble wrap, but it in a bag, and secured it to a small carbon fiber rod I attached to the side for this purpose.

The video is a bit shaky, but not too bad! Professional rigs use much more capable helicopters and vibration isolated camera mounts.
