I've been doing AP now for about a year and have recently had a few long term clients hint that they would really like to have some video of several of the properties/ businesses that they own. I currently have a Maxi Joker 2, Voyager 50E, and a Raptor 60 with a Sport 60 on it. I called and ordered a JR GSR 260 yesterday with an M1 and Kenyon gyro to run the video portion of my business. I would like to know what most of you have had the best luck with and what you are using to control your video with. All of my current mounts are using the Black Widow downlink system and my still cameras are a Cannon Power Shot Pro 1, Nikon 8400, and a Power Shot S70. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

First thing is you will struggle to get a good enough downlink to record from the ground, you need a good mini dv camcorder recording on board the heli and as before use the blackwidow purely to point the camcorder in the right direction.

As for which camcorder it depends on how much weight you can carry and how much money you want to invest,

I'm running a gasser and a Maxi Joker 2 so I've got a little room to work with as far as weight. I'd like to stay below $2000.00 for the camera. Do you have a good recommendation for a better downlink to shoot video from?

Thanks!!
Dave

I would look towards the GS400, it is a really nice camera. As for a downlink, I dont use one on my video stuff but most of my video is virtual tour type stuff that doesnt require precise framing etc.
