Paramotoring along the beaches with chase camera


Today I flew paramotor with Tony along the beaches. Light breeze made the take offs easier.
I decided to test the chase camera. All together we have flown for about 3 hours today and GoPro was taking a picture every 5s. I ended up having 2000+ pictures to go through. 9 the best shots you can see below with the descriptions. The chase camera is stable in the air. I have to improve the angle a bit more but it is better then I expected so far. Because it is attached to the wing tip it is causing the tendency to turn which can be overcome by opening the trimmers.

This was beautiful, sunny and warm day with plenty of flying. I am tired but happy.

People on the beach are very friendly. Everyone is waving:

Low flying along the water. I like this picture because of Synthesis' colorful reflection in the wet sand:
