Now there is something I never thought I'd see. Awesome to see how the blade moves at full speed (well, getting up to speed anyway...)

I have a video just like that. I will get it uploaded tonight.

Edit: I forgot, I dont have a video like that. However I do have a horrible onboard video and a blade cam video that are from the same flight and linked together.

Ive got a question, How in the hell did you mount the camera to the top of the blades???? Let alone the wires but if the camera was a little off center it would have been tossed off during spool up. The G forces alone would have sent a speck of dust on its way outward!! Just intrested and would like to know..

Very very carefully...

I took a coper pipe with the same ID as the OD of my 3dx head, and cut the pipe in half. I then soldered a thin steel plate to the outside of the pipe half. The camera was servo taped to the steel plate, and the copper pipe was servo taped to the head. I then put zip ties over the whole contraption for added security(not showen in pictured). I tried to keep everything very symmetrical to avoid a catastrophic failure. My brother did some calculations and told me that the outsides of the camera were subjected to 165 G's.

Now that is just cool. I thought I would see the blades flex more but I guess not. Good job.

One mile of road will take you one mile. One mile of runway will take you anywhere in the world.

Now that's something you don't see every day.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

Damn...

You beat me to it. I had seen an old (1980's) video of a camera mounted on a full size helicopter in the same fashion. I was going to use my keychain cam to do the same thing. I had been working on a mount that would hold the camera and screw into where the head button goes.

BUT YOU BEAT ME TO IT!!!!!!!

None the less, your video is excellent!!!

Click the link before for the old videos.

V.Interesting.!

Question is, how much of that torsional flexing along the blade is in the camera?

I never would believe a blade would flex that way!!
