Here's some video I took yesterday while we where testing a new desert race truck my shop just finished. Some is FPV (chasing race cars) and some is 3rd person. I'm planning on videoing the race with a plane and a heli soon. Enjoy.

Nicely done!

Is it possible to a wider angle 16:9 maybe?

Please post your video setup.

Thanks, Since I send the video back with Hobby Wireless FPV gear I can't send wide screen formats as of now but I'm working on it. I have a bunch of info on my site FPVvideo(.) com on my Trex set up.

If you're doing FPV/chase with cars/offroad, I'd recommend using a plank instead of the heli if you're going long distances.

Far smoother, faster and much more stable when banking/following.

I've tried it down in Baja 6 years ago with a modified easystar.

You can get equally good footage with a disposable platform (low cost$)

I was thinking the same thing....
Fixed wing would do a great job here. And it seems that you have enough space for take of and landing.

Yeah I have a few of those here also (2) Easystars with 2.4 and 900mhz wireless gear along with 2 TwinStar II's . One TwinStar is hopped up to keep up with the race cars and flys over 72mph. The TwinStar has a 2 camera plateform, OSD, GPS, etc so a co-pilot can operate the Pan & Tilt camera as I pilot by the fixed camera. This is the best set up and allows me to fly above the DUST without having to worry about seeing it from the ground. The co-pilot can keep the camera on target. Heli is good for some shots but my planes work the best for races .

Here's one of my TwinStars in Glamis, Ca.
