Anyone with a GoPro willing to upload their dashboard during trips to show us your driving style?
I'm considering getting one for the motorcycle and would like to hear suggestions on which one to get. I will upload my style when I choose a one.

Left Screen and Speedo was what I'm thinking.

 

What GoPro you have? Would you recommend it or another one for a motorcycle that vibrates like an earthquake?

I have the GoPro 2, but haven't used it too much and definitely not on a motorcycle. I think it should be fine, but the shaking might be too much.

I have the go pro hero "original" and the hero 3 black. The original is all i have used extensively so far. The camera does pretty well with vibration. Youtube uploaded videos also allow for image stabilization but the video can look distorted. Here is a video of mine that was not on the most stable of mounts using the original hero. I also used youtubes image stabilization for this video. 

 

 

 

What particular left screen option would you like to see? I can make this a item on my to do list.

Cool video and the picture is very stable if you compare it to the vibration you can see in the round mirror.

Hopefully it's not inappropriate to ask but why are you driving around with a picture of Donald Trump in your car ;)

Nope.  No video.  Just a big blank spot in the middle of the post.  I even tried using IE and get the same results.  Hmmm???  :waiting:

There's a much cheaper 720P 30 fps camera here. I use it on a 1.5 oz. electric RC plane.

This Hong Kong seller, electroponline365 has been very reliable.

Hobbypartz has some mini cameras dirt cheap too, like $12.  http://www.hobbypartz.com/new.html

 

A GoPro is a little too much for me at the moment, I have a nice Sony cam HD that is just a touch larger, but I dont have a mount for it, and it wont fit in my plane. I am giving some thought to those listed at that site.

I've had two of the 808 cams, a lens A, lost with the plane an ultra micro Champ, and a lens D wide angle. They were both good. The $12 cams are knock offs of the 808's and problematical. See a lens A video here:

Three minutes in is a signal loss. My 2010 FFH is in the parking lot.

I've had osprey that nest on the light towers be curious but they never attacked. I had no control going down through the wires and I couldn't see it properly. When the link and power returned, it climbed back out through them. Just dumb luck. Power goes to idle when the RC link is lost. This model works on a 2 channel DSM2 protocol which can sometimes be blocked by other strong signals like Wi-Fi and cordless phones, etal, in the 2.4 G band. I flew too high a few weeks later and glanced away and lost sight and lost the plane. The mantra with today's RC systems is, "if you can see it, you can control it, if you can't see it, you're not going to see it again." The area around the 350' X 350' ball field is tree-lined residential with a lot of canals and we never could find it. The Champ had let three of us learn to fly RC and was mostly repair tape by then but I lost the $50 camera.
