Flight Instruction / Re: Flight instruction this Wed. July 11

Hmmm... I must have missed the GPS in reading the camera spec.  Not too clear from instruction whether the camera is making use of the phone's GPS hardware or not. In any case, it's an ideal camera to capture video on board our planes, especially if we can send one up in a war wing combat mission! ;D

Hi Frank, it has the GPS function.  Here is the instruction from Insta360:

1. Turn on the camera, plug it into your phone, and shoot videos or photos.
2. Open the photo or video that you want to share, tap the "share" button on top of the the screen, and select "Street View".
3. Review the shared content under PROFILE tab in Street View app.

Thanks for the info and quick response, Oscar. It's an impressive little camera. If it has a build-in GPS, it would be a Google Street View camera in your pocket!

Great day!

Hot but light wind.

Flew my A10 but one of the wheels wasn't retracting, nor was it in the right alignment; I landed the plane gently and slowly with no serious damage.

I flew my Albatross twice, and that was beautiful.

Peter was flying lots of nice planes and did a lot of touch-n-gos with his Piper Cub. Glenn flew a giant old timer, and his big Mustang. Rob was there with his son. Chris and a couple Ryerson guys were flying as we watched. It was really nice!

Lots of flying, and at the end, a mid-air with my Northstar and Greg's Stryker. My Northstar gently glided done inverted with minor damage. Greg's plane was hit pretty badly.

I think there were about 15 people flying.

We had a couple visitors: Bill Miché (an old friend of Jack Higgins) and Ed stopped by as I was leaving.

Hi Frank, yes.  It's done with the 360 camera called Insta360 One.  The camera comes with the editing software, Insta360 Studio.  It has Android / iOS / Mac / PC version.  The software can't compare with Photoshop Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut, but it's sufficent to do the work.  Best of all, it's FREE.  My 360 editing are done thru Insta360 Studio PC version.

If you purchase it from Insta360 store, it's $410CDN include shipping. https://store.insta360.com/product/one
Or from GearBest for $399CDN with free shipping. https://www.gearbest.com/action-cameras/pp_931300.html

The footage is so stable because it has 6 gryos stabilization built-in.  The camera can shot upto 1.4k footage.  Footage is stored on micro-SD card.  You need to get the high-end micro-SD (UHS-1) because it's storing large data.  I bought this one from BestBuy.  https://www.bestbuy.ca/en-ca/product/samsung-evo-plus-32gb-95mb-s-microsdhc-uhs-1-memory-card/10717558.aspx?

The phone works best for iphone / ipad.  For Android, you need a special adaptor (additional cost) and newer model Android phone is not compatible (for example, Samsung S9).  Note: Camera itself can run without the phone.  It's only for instant sharing to facebook or extra storage.

For accessories, I bought the bullet-time selfie stick.  Here is the footage on bullet-time.

Wow, what an amazing video, Oscar!  Do you mind sharing more info on this video system? Is it taken with a 360-degree fish eye lens with post processing to come up with the final video?
