Yesterday, I was invited out for a little afternoon flying, with my friend BJ Pennovich, who flies and builds remote controlled planes and copters.
I have been wanting to build and fly a tricopter for aerial shots with my GoPro, not to mention they just look fun. So what happens when you mount a GoPro to a tricopter?
Well that all depends on who’s holding the controls.
As a video equipment nerd, I’ve come to love the GoPro HD and HD2 cameras. Small, light, versatile cameras that can be seemingly placed anywhere you might want to share a point-of-view from. These little gems seem to dominate the action camera market and there is plenty of gear to get your hands on to enhance the experience.
With every great product comes user feedback exploiting it’s weaknesses. The GoPro has its few, and one of which seems to be the housing that the gopro rests in for protection. The housing is made of plastic and if you’re like me, in that you put your gopro into danger every time you use it, you may be a bit worried. After all, the goal is to have a few of these cameras in my stable..not to replace them constantly.
Enter the new HEADCASE and HEADGEAR PRO. A nearly indestructable GoPro mounting case that boasts a plethora of features that make it not only handy for saving your investment, but also adding to it’s flexibility. After the jump we’ll list the features of each package from UNRULY(the company involved in bringing these cases to life) and take a look at how to get your hands on one.
Recently the ever so popular GoPro HD was updated to the new and improved GoPro HD 2, and quite frankly it couldn’t have been better timing. Lately I’ve fancied myself in the action camera market. I’ve checked out various competitors to the GoPro, such as the line from Contour and the Replay XD. After scouring the internet for reviews and comparisons, i came across a direct comparison video(posted below) from OliviaTech. But before we get to the video, heres a few things i really like about the newest offering.
