I’m a big fan of RC (Remote Controlled) Airplanes, Helicopters, and cars. I don’t have any right now but, I’ve been looking at Helicopters and think I may want to give that a whirl. 😉 – sorry about the pun. I did, however, get my nephews a couple of really sweet/fast cars for Christmas this past year. I think with the engines installed these little cars could get up to 30mph! Very cool indeed!
Well, we were looking at adding a camera to the cars so you could see their speed from the car’s point of view but, wasn’t sure how it would look… Then, today, I saw a tweet on twitter from Zefrank about this Vimeo Video and, it was pretty cool. Shows just how well mounting a camera to a Remote Controlled vehicle would work. In this case it was on a plane. The guy who shot the video has lots of other good ones but, I think this one takes the cake! So here ya go… This is pretty cool:

A large raptor attacks my remote controlled eagle. I barely get away by making quick dives until some crows come to my rescue!
