A buddy of mine created this video simply using a Trex 500, FPV equipment and a handheld Sony HD camera. There is nothing special about his setup, but it just goes to show how flight skill is a determining factor in producing good quality video and photos. Apparently he spent less than $2000 on his setup. Just goes to show you don't have to put $10,000+ into your system.

Wow! Wow!

Awesome.

Do you happen to know what FPV gear he was using?

It's easy to find an excuse to do wrong. Hard is not to find an excuse to do right.

An absolute pleasure to watch. Well edited and a great music selection for it. Well done.

It makes Aerial Sky Cam's vids look like the $3 movie that they really are.

Very cool and very brave! I could never fly over the lake like that.

My only criticism would be that it seems the camera or the heli is leaning to the right. Maybe he can adjust this for the next video? Other than that it is superb!

That was some really good video, you are right about the results he got. The music, however, is steeped in gayness.

Very good piloting skills AND keeping the heli stable. I have found if you tilt the camera to the left over so slightly, when in a hover the frame will be 100% horizontal. A heli will lean to the right in a hover.
