    How did you get that angle – what kind of camera mount is that? I am trying to make something similar to use – i would love to get your advice, thanks.

    is a 25 mm alu bar, one meter long, inserted into a transversal hole in the rear part of the keel. The rear part of the keel is not the original keel but a WW HP-AT rear leading edge, and the transversal hole is the original leading edge tip hole. With this mount I can perform centrifuged maneuvers only with a light bullet camera because the lever is very long and torsion forces on the tube are remarkable, but for the spin I can use without problems an heavy weight digital camera.
    Andrea.

    Wow – thanks for the information – I'll consider that when I am making mine. I'd love to get to the point that I can do the amazing maneuvers you do – if you have any time to watch my wing over videos I'd love to hear what I could do better. Thanks!

    …is difficult to properly evaluate your wing overs with that kind of "on board" shots but, anyway, they look pretty smooth and you seem to feel at your ease. This is good. Go on like that.
    The only advice I can give you for your training is to be focused on the smootness of the maneuver, not on its bank angle. The bank angle is something that will increase "naturally" with your self confidence. Obviously, an higher bank angle requires an higher speed.
    Andrea.

    Ciao Michele,
    spero proprio di si! Sto ricominciando a volare proprio adesso, dopo nove mesi di fermo forzato a causa di un brutto infortunio al ginocchio. Spero di fare un salto al Cucco al più presto per riprendere un po' la mano…
