A few of you may remember our RC planes from Aerospace Camp last year – one of the campers, Matthew Prett, has been making a few alterations since then and not only is it still flying, but he has managed to get some excellent footage from it using a GoPro Hero 3 camera.
For anyone who has never heard of GoPro, their cameras are widely considered to be the best on the market and produce amazing full HD video in very tough conditions, including in space and underwater! They are used extensively for professional TV programmes, films and documentaries, yet are also cheap enough for anyone to buy one. We attempted to capture some footage at the camp using some modified surveillance cameras which were chosen because they were very small and light, however the footage is nothing compared to Matthew’s! You can see his video on YouTube here.
