Short Bonanza Flight: KBFI-KPLU
October 25, 2012 Leave a comment
A short hop from Boeing Field (KBFI) to Thun Field (KPLU) to have the oil changed in the Bonanza (a model A36).
The setup for this video includes:
- GoPro Hero2 camera with the latest firmware (HD2.08.12.198.WIFI.R47.00, released October 8, 2012); this new firmware seems to remove most of the distracting propeller artifacts caused by the rolling shutter used in digital cameras.
- Pilot USA GA Headset Digital Video Recorder Adapter to feed cockpit audio to the GoPro
- Fat Gecko Co-Pilot camera mount that holds the camera securely behind the front seats and provides a good viewing angle
The weather was VMC, with a few low-lying clouds scattered around the area. As you can see, I flew a tight pattern at KPLU to remain clear of clouds hanging north of the airport.
