video of my Edge from my helicopter camera

shot and edited it this morning.... used my UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) equipped with a gyro stabilized camera to shoot it.

needed a subject for the video so I thought why not put my Edge in there

The helicopter comes from Japan. it's a kit that you must build. The gyro stabilized camera mount is partially my design. It's a big chopper in terms of radio control size.... about 7' long and 3' high weighs 25lb.

I'll be doing more video with my truck (and others) in motion on the ground. I've landed some jobs shooting video for TV commercials so that'll kepp me busy for a few months. I'll be sure to post up any cool videos when I can.

not much info on this bird as it comes from Japan and for the most part is only used for industrial applications

I also have some info and pics on my site here:

http://azchoppercam.com/JR_helicopter.htm

kit is about $2200 and that's not including any electronics or engine mods. total for the complete setup including camera gear is about $16,000

If things go as planned the system will have paid for itself twice by this time next year. I charge anywhere from $550-1600 a shoot.
