I have always wanted to get an aerial view of a HPR rocket flight and today at the EARS rocket club, I finally got the chance to fly my supercub to try to capture a launch on HD video. here is the result.
HART was asked to help make a music video for Chicane's new song "Come Back". Orginally the plan was to launch a rocket with an onboard camera to capture the aerial view of the large message on the ground but this was ruled out and so a RC helicopter fitted with a HD camera was used instead to get the shots. But my "HART Stopper" rocket was still used as a large static prop for the shoot. I also managed to launch a few small rockets as a demo for the crew. I really enjoyed the day - and now cant wait to see the finished video.
