Hard to believe I forgot my accordion at home...getting careless these days...
WOW...thanks... Great pic's, wish I was there.
This is the job I want, the keeper of the scoop... The Scoop Guy.
Many thanks for sharing, you have a gift .
Here's the helicopter-camera gizmo again...
The crew from the British Broadcasting Network is here producing documentaries on the teams at "Speed Week" that are from the UK.
The official name for this gizmo is:
"choppercam-X6 UAV".....unmanned aerial vehicle
It's made by a company in Germany. The camera weighs one pound and the copter weighs five.
There is a gyroscope inside the camera housing. The operator uses a eadio control platform like an RC airplane would use.
The operator is sort of a passenger in the little copter because he "views" what the camera "sees" through his electronic glasses that he wears.
The copter can fly as fast as 100 MPH. When they are done using it, one of the crew simply stands and lets the copter come down to his hand and at tha moment the operator cuts the power.
There are LED lights across the framework so the operator can operate it at night.
Now...can you imagine how much mischief we could get into with one of these?
Someday!! Great pics thanks.....
