    Default Helicopter needed, I don't think

    Anyone know of a decent UK video library. I'm looking for helicopter footage ofthe English Lake-District.

    Can't help with a library, although I have often wondered if there is a market for aerial photography, as I'm pretty certain I could get a camera in the air and control it (stills or video) for a reasonable price!

    (And before Shrimpy jumps in and tells us about R/C helicopters, that's not what I'm talking about! Less vibration and weight restrictions!)

    Hi Ian,
    I'm interested!!!
    That sounds exciting stuff. I need to stay with HDV although which shouldn't affect the weight in anyway.
    A couple of questions!
    Whats your location and when you say a reasonable price, can you give me a clue? I've just lost my job so how reasonable is reasonable?
    With not having too much info and detail at the moment I can only estimate that filming could be completed within a day.

    There's a huge competitve market for aerial photography. What you are offering may be of interest to my commercial colleagues.

    If you wish to give me some ideas of costs I can put it on my(front page Google) website and spread the word a little.

    It is an idea I have been toying with for a few months now, and, as far as I can ascertain, hasn't been tried as yet! (Well, not for aerial photography. Otherwise, it's a proven concept)

    The initial costs would be in the few hundreds, maybe 5 or 6, but having suffered a heart attack earlier in the year I haven't had the funds to build.
    It's good to hear that there are avenues to follow that would/might make the project worthwhile!

    The problems, as I see it, with Shrimpy's helicopter, are the weight only allows small cameras, vibration from the heli for really smooth shots, and it takes almost as much skill to fly an R/C heli as it does to fly a real one!

    By all means PM me a phone number and we can talk about it, you can laugh at the idea or consider it, whichever you feel is appropriate!
