I should be receiving my Phantom 2 with Gimbal next week! We are gearing up for the College Nations in Maryland this year and we will have Horizon True camera mounts and cameras using the mast mount and VIO camaras...long battery life on 4 boats. I also will be using the Phantom 2 for aerial shots with a GoPro 3+ Black camera. The regatta will air on ESPN U this summer! I purchased the quad-copter from Atlanta Hobby. Look for some test video to come...even before the snow melts!
This long hard winter, only half way through, it makes one dream of sailing again! But, knowing it won't happen soon, a boat project list in in order. Just maybe I can find a day where my boat partner and I can start working on our S2 7.9. We recently found some horizontal cracks just below the waterline and will be checking them out in the near future. We also have paint coming off where bow stickers when removed after our last regatta took the paint with it! I'll post some pictures later and update progress on our boat repairs.
Horizon True camera mounts had a good show in Chicago despite low turn out of customers and vendors! (I though the economy was suppose to be improving!)
I have received suggestions that I need to put up a video on all the mounts and mounting options showing how it all works, so that will be coming soon as well!
Please feel free to ask questions of me here on this blog!
