This is my first aerial video in about 3.5 months. I spent the last several months trying to build, fly, and tweak a GWS Slow Stick only to have little success and end in frustration. I decided to go back to the old standy Super Cub, but this time upgrading it to a new brushless motor with a 3-cell Li-Po battery. After having problems with it initially, I finally figured out that the problems were with the radio transmitter that I was using with the Slow Stick and Brushless Super Cub.
So, I bought a new Spektrum DX6i, and haven't turned back. I finally have things tweaked the way I like 'em, and I'm ready to start doing aerial photography / videography again.
This video was taken over the new Betty Fairfax High School, which was opened in August 2007 in Laveen, Arizona. It was shot on July 20, 2008, with a Canon PowerShot SD40 mounted to a HobbyZone Super Cub RC airplane.
