Crazy as always, my friend!

Have you considered getting a UV/Haze filter for that Vado? I think these super-high videos would really benefit.

At least one review for these filters is from a guy who uses them on his Vado HD (I think that's what you're using...) albeit with adapters.

That is cool are you going to have them post the video here or is it going else where to be viewed.
Be nice to have them posted here and us wattheads can follow the intercepter to new sites, and adventures.

As the saying goes just my 2 cents.

That is neat stuff James, and what a awesome view from that altitude.

From your dive rate and pull out the wings can handle the g's that is sharp having the altimeter on board and seeing it with the camera.
Once again you come up with something different and unique.

Glad you enjoyed. The Interceptor Duce has features number uno wish it had. I dont care for the blinking led's on Eagletree unit which I got in plane to...Because the MD-80 fps is 30 it can miss a blinking led now and then making it look like Im at 200ft when at 2000 because of missing a light blink...so I like to create my own way of doing things and here it is being testing, more to come...in flight recording is da bomb. Kinda says what Im doing without the guessing. Mainly for those watchin because I know what its doing.

Going for 4K in the morning if rain stops.

Yes I get permission and fly on weekends when my plant is closed. The KC-135 came from a airbase 12 miles away.
