1. Slow flying while filming.
    The camera is hard mounted, panning and tilting are done with ailerons, rudder, and a bit of cross controlling.
    Shot with the wing mount on the Marchetti SF260. Ikonix camera and P2 record deck.
    There is a wide lens on the camera, so objects, or planes are closer than they appear.
    It was a challenge maintaining position as the Albatross reconfigured itself with flaps and speed changes on the approach to the water. The Marchetti is not know for it's slow flight capabilities.

  5. This spec promo piece was done many years ago on a shoestring budget. We didn't have any HD prosumer cameras or GoPros back then. What we did have was access to a Marchetti, an underwing camera mount fit inside an inspection panel, and a day shooting with the channel 2 helicopter folks at our airport. The reason we made this piece was to convince Discovery to finance a show featuring Matt Jackson, super pilot and mechanic.
