He currently use a Panasonic DVCPRO HD AG-HVZ200 P2 camera, a 6 pounds camera. He built his front camera mount to be able to fit this camera (able to tilt it). His gimbal weigth near 8 pounds!! Camera + mount = 14 pounds!

With 2 liters of Kerosene, he's good for 9 minutes of fligth time. He spins 850mm blade. Total load (heli+mount+camera+fuel) is near 36 pounds! Pretty interesting considering this weigth.

A very ingenius guy and a very good pilot too. When he flys my helis, I have the feeling that it's not my helis (they are so smooooth... a Carvec on two legs hehehe)... boy, I thougth I was good

36 pounds!! wow!

What is the airframe based on? I couldnt tell from the video

I think my Maxi with the HVX200 is right at 22lbs, but his has more power I am sure!

For what I know, he built the helis with a mix of many helicopter and a lot of customs parts that he has designed. He uses many parts from Vario but couldn't tell you more cause... I just don't know . I'll ask him. Should be interesting

He said that he can developed 6HP of power with the turbine (spinning at 103000 rpm!!).

yes I agree, the jet copters have tones of power, and with little or no vibration. I think would be the way to fly something like a Super 35mm ARRI III.

Hey, 124 hits and nobody has something to say about it??

Everybody speachless ?
It's not possible to comment on the true quality of the footage and capability of the equipment when the movie sample is either slowed down or speeded up. I don't know why but most sample movies you see from aerial video companies using models is slowed down, why is this? is it to minimise the appearance of camera movement or to send the potential client into semi consciousness so they sign on the dotted line more readily. There is also a higher percentage of the movie shot from cameras other then the one attached to the aircraft.

A lot of the shots are hovering/slow flight shots which are actually relatively easy, it's those high speed passes that sort the men from the boys and makes a directors mind go into overdrive. There is also a lot of camera movement, for instance the shot from HELIGO_Demo2006.mpeg from the website where the camera flies between the trees and over the swimming pool.
Some of the shots over the keep fit nutters would have been terrific if the pan had been capable of 360 degrees.

Has the sample been stabilized post production??

Show me some raw footage straight from the camera, footage shot at speed (lets get dynamic, not sleepy), played at the correct speed and preferably un-compressed and I'll give you a worthwhile opinion.
