1. Out for a quick spin round the local park for a bit of aerial video fun with my DJI F550 Heavy Lift Conversion.

    Here we're using 11 x 5 carbon Fibre props on Tiger Motor 2814-10's and hanging from that, via an isolation mount, is an Aeroxcraft brushless gimbal holding a GoPro 3 Black Edition, recording 60FPS, 1080. Final file is 30 FPS.

    We're testing the GoPro 3's low light performance, and these flights started at 8.50 pm, and ended at around 9.30 pm, so it really had its work cut out, which explains some slight blurring on some shots - otherwise it did as great a job in the low light as the Aeroxcraft brushless gimbal did eradicating jello and incidental craft movement !

    Tip: In very low light, on the GoPro cameras, always turn proTune mode off - you'll get a better result.

  2. Extra-difficult fly-site, but extra lovely views if you get away with it...

    Yes, it's my flight nemesis (although I have never actually crashed here), but I keep coming back because i want some footage of that epic view as you head off the ridge of the hill.

    There's no GPS, very limited field of view, and massive headwinds that do their best to suck you out of view and range as soon as you get out over the valley. Cue lots of fun avoiding GPS malfunctions, and chronic craft turbulence, but my brushless gimbal mainly sorted it all out, and we've got a half reasonable bit of video.

    Not as nice as part 2, but even so.

The View from Above.

Aerocam has been running for around a year and is a personal aerial video project, which is an excellent way of combining my interests in technology, video, music, project building and electronics into one massively rewarding hobby. AP Multi-rotors.

For a year I have been uploading to YT. now I am trialling a possibly better way... good luck Vimeo.

Currently, my main craft is AC1 v5.1, which is based around a seriously upgraded DJI F550 frame.

Arm extensions, Tiger motor 2814-10's, 11" Carbon Props and vibration-isolated landing gear supports an Aeroxcraft Brushless Gimbal holding a GoPro 3 Black Edition, usually recording at 30 or 60 FPS, 1080HD or higher.

Full setup details and archive flight log available over at my blog - http://www.aerocam.org.uk
