    Default aerial filming from rc planes and sailing

    hello,

    About a month ago I started this youtube channel it's about aerial filming from rc planes and If the weather gets nice I will make videos about sailing to.

    just a sample video



    Let me know what you think

    I think if you can sort out the constant adjustments, you'll be making so nice aerial videos this summer.

    The movement is too much for me,

    - I wonder that you can't use a gyro to stab the camera-mount? I understand these are used by builders of helicopters . . . so not too pricey . . . Is this Go-Pro footage? There is an odd curvature distortion.

    The shots where the plane is closer to the ground are far more impressive. The early shots didn't do anything for me. To get usable footage I would suggest filming an a sunny day, close to the ground with a narrower lens

    Thank you for your feedback. I am trying to make smooth footage but this was the first flight after a crash so I had to trim everything out. The next video will be less shaky I Promise you.

    Filming from a rc plane will always be twitchy, that's the nature of the beast and a gyro would act like jimmy cricket in a tumble dryer.
    Locking the exposure will help with any auto twitching on sky/ground shots, but a rc helichopter will get you infinitely more stable shots. You do need an experienced pilot to control them though as they are deadly things.
    My opinions are just that . . . Mine. It's not personal, but is based on my emotional and professional reaction to requested critique. If you choose to ignore constructive comments, I'll just assume you're a vanity poster and not posting to improve your filming and editing skills.
