This is a video that did not make the transition when the site changed so I'm re-posting it. It utilizes a number of different camera mounting points, segments of which have been spliced together, to produce an overall view and tell the story. I did it in black and white since the camera used was cheap and had poor resolution.

    Thanks for the comments. Telling little stories in a couple of minutes featuring is one of the goals of these videos. The flexibility of a trike as a camera platform is much greater than with any other aircraft. It is possible to add motion to the scene depending upon where the camera is mounted it is all up to the videographer and the scene which all relates back to the story.

    It takes more time and energy in planning the shots and multiple takes are required but I believe it adds more to the video and makes it more enjoyable for the viewer, which is what it is all about. The more people who see and enjoy our videos the more people who will become interested in light sport weight shift control aircraft.

    Couldn't agree more, I'm dusting off the video camera and preparing to do some new videos soon :)

    Black and White? That's different. You must be a fan of 12 Monkeys it seems like and possibly even The Bleep Do We Know.

    Everything in film history can be co-opted and remade as a trike video to generate interest in the sport. How about a film noir trike video, with lots of shadows and window blinds.

    Nobody gave you 5 stars for this one yet?! There you go B.
    Rating can give both positive feedback and change the likelihood Joe Public will see one video versus another. So, in addition to the great service that making positive videos provides, we can ALL help by uprating positive videos.

    That's the spirit! After the bad guys fire-off their ICBMs, if all else fails, hiding under a picnic blanket will see us through.

    I think hiding under a blanket is a perfectly rational response, what I can't see can't hurt me. Wrong.

    This was a visual response to the locals who had trouble with the concept of aerotrekking (flying somewhere). Rational explanations had little effect and I created this piece to suggest what they could do when they saw a trike flying in their vicinity.

    Please Google "how to mount a video camera on an aircraft" for ideas.
