    @aviator147 Yes, it’s great and easy to use. In fact I am going to get at least 1 more, possibly 2 for multiple angles.

    Great Video! You should make more like it, and could u maybe show how you have it mounted in the plane? Thanks. 🙂

    @chazflyz I did not know a C172 can fly 150+ knots.

    @chazflyz Yh, I’ll give that a try. Thanks

    @Lewy1997 You will have to get creative with the mounting. Check out GoPro’s website. I just bought the headstrap mount which I plan to use for my future flights.

    great vid! Might be getting one of these to record some of my Flying Lessons, is it possible to mount it to an aviation headset e.g. a David Clark H10 – 60

    @vrturbo Me too, just got my PPL in a PA28, my mate has a GoPro, so I think I’ll borrow his and make my mind up.

    @chazflyz Works fine. I mounted mine on the outside of my dad’s J-3. Will upload the videos once I get home and edit them. That suction cup is AWESOME. Just use some strong string that is attached to the camera/suction cup so you have a backup in case it falls off, so you can pull it inside the plane. Wouldn’t want to loose the camera or let it hit the tail.

    I also went skydiving (head down) with the sticky mounts that came with the GoProHD Motorsports. It held up just fine at over 200 MPH.

    @chazflyz Zipties 😉

  14. chazflyz on July 18th, 2011 7:29 am

    @thetilo Not yet. I do have the suction mount and have used it when driving. But not at 150+ knots. 🙂

  15. thetilo on July 18th, 2011 8:12 am

    Have you tried mounting it outside the aircraft?

    @sk16all “Elvis spotted flying boeing 797 to Mars” ?

  17. sk16all on July 18th, 2011 9:01 am

    Holy crap! Chazflyz flies?! Well done! I saw Reid Hillview (KRHV), San Jose(KSJC), Moffett Federal, San Francisco (KSFO), and Napa (KAPC)…”airport spotting” ;p
    Why don’t the tags on this video say 767, 777, 787, 747, aircraft crash, aircraft incident, fireball, crash & burn?

    very nice video. always fun to get up in the air in a light aircraft such as a cessna.

  19. vrturbo on July 18th, 2011 10:29 am
