I've been a bit pre-occupied learning some new skills, a hint can be found on Youtube...

Hope you enjoy the photo's as much as I've enjoyed learning some new skills and gaining a new perspective. The stills are taken with a Canon 350D and Chinese time lapse trigger. (no servos or video down link)

Interesting Russ! A perfect gadget for spying through the windows of sexy neighbors :laughing:

Definitely and interesting project. Aren't you worried about crashing though? I'm not sure I could put my camera in harms way like that.

Well then don't crash :D Seriously it's on my mind but the plane I'm using is purpose built & flies @ about 5-10 mph at best. I have a timer running to tell me when I have to be back on the ground, when the times up I have 2 minutes of flying left. If the plane is out 400 yds it seems like it takes nearly all of that to get back to me!

You're in a good area and time of year to try and squeeze that plane in behind a flock of geese after they lift off a field. Some good potential if you can take photos to the side or rear.
