I'm not seeing the picture of this yet.
How far down below the skids do you need to be? How do you miss the skid on the other side.

I'd say the camera needs to be at least 1 - 2 ft below both skids, depending on the model of the heli and what the capture subject is, and assuming everything above the skids is sky.

Your going to pick up the heli no matter what. You just have to make sure that its in the "sky" and not in any of the "picture".

I see what your saying now.
I was looking at that mountain shot and it looked like it was above the horizon line or what I thought might be in line with the skid on the opposite side.
How do you figure your start and finish rotation shot?

I would think holding a camera with just the monopod end sounds risky, but keep it coming

You can attach a automated pan head to the end of a pole, similar to the RC mechanism.

we have a project in the works for shooting panos from full size heli using multiple cameras fired at the same time.

This allows for capturing panos in a single moment while flying at 90mph without stitching errors.

Cameras are mounted to a short pole. The other end of the pole is bolted to a rotary actuator mounted to the heli skid. News helicopters use the rotators to drop down microwave antennas after takeoff.

Similar to this

Using GPS geotagging while shooting them allows for some interesting projects
