Default RV-8 and the Day After Thanksgiving

It is unbelievable how beautiful the 4 day Thanksgiving weekend was in the ordinarily drab and rain drenched Northwest. Most years I am lucky to get one day of flying, this year I got three, just over 8 hours in three days.

Friday we went out to Forks for lunch and up the coast to Tatoosh Island and Cape Flattery. The low sun angle created some interesting shots along the north coast.

The video can be found here.

I thought I'd add this picture to Steve's thread, taken while we were at Forks. Our RV-8s, with the Forks Timber Museum in the background:

Left a long reply, and played a fun game. Great video, as always.

Sure would appreciate hearing about your cameras, the mounting, etc. Thanks for the great videos!

Default 3 Cameras

I use at least 3 cameras, sometimes others as well.

On the wing I have a GoPro Hero 7 Black mounted underneath on a PlaneAround mount.

Mount: https://planearound.com/shop?olsPage...wingtip-bundle

You can see it under the wing in the first picture in this thread.

In the cockpit I have a Drift Ghost 4K clamped to the roll bar.

For hand held shots to the sides I use my iPhone 8.

I use a Drift Ghost 4K (value, endurance, and aerodynamics) and a mount like you have on my wing. How did you mount the camera to the roll bar?

Thanks for providing the spectacular videos. Your scenery and editing are excellent.

I have a clamp mount that I bought for something a long time ago. I don't know where I got it or who made/sold it. If I can remember I will take a picture next time I am at the airport.

It is the Pedco Ultra Clamp available at Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/UltraClamp-As...5339585&sr=8-1

I found that using it as supplied allowed for a lot of camera shake so I quit using it for a number of years. When I got the -8 I wanted something to clamp on the roll bar, but this would take up too much room. Then I got the bright idea to take off the bottom piece and mount the camera directly to the clamp and it works great.
