    Looked at your Video and yes that not good the wobble, thats why I don't use that camera, its a good video and the wobble is due to mass so use maths to fix it. E=MC2 ever thing in life is mass and its all vibration, so the solution to fix any Hero camera for use in aircraft flying between 40 and 84 mph is to drill a 6 mm hole in the front part of the waterproof housing and a 3.2 mm hole in the back, I don't recommend this as this would make the camera not water proof and may mess up your warrantee another solution would be to glue 67mm of a bic pen case 44mm from the from the left looking from the front and 26.4 mm from the bottom edge. i don't have a camera to hand to check this and that point may be the lens meaning you cant do it so some experiments may be necessarily to make it in balance with the air.

    Hi Mick

    The wobble is called the jello effect. It comes about because of the camera's rolling shutter. Word was that the later GoPros were less prone to the jello effect. With a GoPro1 and a GoPro3 mounted together I have had jello on the 1 and not on the 3

    Turned up this site

    My entry. Really not sure about the helmet mounted footage though. A lot of movement! Light not good too and quite low temps @ -3c. Finally got to fly on saturday after waiting and waiting through weeks and weeks of foul weather. Just a quick low level across County Down. Quite a buzz. Passed Joe on the way across the Estuary. (Hi Joe!!). Music by the wonderful Horslips, "I'll be waiting". Well worth the wait.


    Keep calm and carry on.

    Hi Sam

    Your best yet; really sharp

    It does come as a surprise when you first see how much you move your head. All I can suggest is that knowing you have got the makings of a good shot, you focus on holding your head as steady as you can for the time it takes to get that shot. Maybe fly the plane towards that shot; if the shot is worth it why not go round and have another go

    Cheers

    Joe
