    They look ok to me.

    Since they're about drones, Electronics sounds good.

    Welcome to Austech.

    The embedded vids run as 16:9 for me.

    We don't have a dedicated section for aerial photography, so General Chat is probably the best place.

    They only appear to be cut off due to a combination of your screen size & the inserted forum add.

    If you reduce your browser text size by using "Ctrl" and "-" the video will be right. Reverse applies if you want enlarge your text again, "Ctrl" and "+".

    Alternatively you select play then double click on the video you get full screen any way.

    Don't worry I can see them, cool vids, there are a few members here into quad copters & radio control planes with go-pros on them. Have a look around & or start your own thread in general chat.

    Some here for you Post #91

    Post #67 here
    Cheers, Tiny

    welcome aboard DRONETEC
    and thanks for the vids
    can you tell us a bit more about your gear used in the vid? DJI f450, Gopro, gimbal type and do you use fpv goggles or just a screen when flying?
    pretty smooth vid, no vibrations
    having only just started with this hobby, I'm interested to see how long have you been at it

    EDIT doh, would help if I had watched the first vid as I see you use the goggles
    Fatshark?

    Welcome. Very interesting hobby. I saw some drones etc. on the geekbuying site and must say I was tempted, despite being almost totally ignorant on the topic. Nearly every time I see a new toy or gadget I want it! Oh well, maybe later.

    It appears a few members are interested Quadcopters/drones with cameras etc, me too, so I looked up an old thread that I remembered has great info & video in it.
    Edit: BTW it is buried way back, so it only takes one post in the thread to bump it back to page 1.
    Enjoy;

    Got a photographer mate in NZ who also uses "quads" for aerial shots ()
    I think he has one of the best jobs in the world.

    what spelling?
    looks like a nice part of the world to fly in
    what fatshark goggles did you get?
    the head tracking ones look good but they're pretty expensive

    Looks like a fun hobby, pity I can't afford it. I have too many hobbies that I cannot afford at the moment. Motorbikes being one. Can't afford being on two fronts, money being one, and time, the other. Oh well, I can enjoy your videos. Thanks for posting.
