This months video share is from Trent Palmer’s YouTube Channel.
Conventional gimbal systems for selfie sticks don’t do too well with the 50 mph + range of a bush plane, Trent used his DJI Inspire with the props off strapped to the lift struts of his KitFox to utilize the Inspires camera & gimbal system that can handle the air speed on a bush plane platform.
I would highly recommend Trent’s channel, it has some of the highest quality & most compelling Aviation content on YouTube.
While its not a huge market this looks like an excellent entrepreneurial endeavor to create a gimbal system rated for general aviation aircraft at GoPro level prices serving the market between the weaker systems and the ultra high cost cinematography systems.

At 22 he bought rural land in Pennsylvania and just 2 years later at 24 he built a car enthusiast man cave setup. I found this to be a very inspirational video for anyone who is into Car’s, Airplanes, out door toys in general and wants a place to work on them & use them.

To learn even more about man caves & construction audio books, Audible is a great option. For my daily commute I listen to 1 – 2 audio books per month. Audible has coverage for all kinds of topics.
Quite the different video this month, Flite Test had coverage of the first manned acrobatic intent multi rotor created by the Drone Champions League

The shielding & cradle mechanism / structure to support the fragile balsa glider under a helicopter was truly impressive.

Very impressive video of sail planes flying over the mountains of Bosnia and Herzegovina with Aeroklub Livno hosing the event. It’s amazing to see how long these machines can stay in the air with no motor.
In high school I got the opportunity to take some glider lessons in a Schweizer SGS 2-33 in Boulder Colorado. I would recommend getting a few training flights in gliders if your working on your private pilots license & up. It’s a valuable experience to see what an aircraft is like with no engine adding massive competence to powered aircraft engine out procedures. If your in the Boulder area the current company doing glider training is called Mile High Gliding.

Most famous for his Draco bush plane (a highly modified PZL-104 Wilga)
It’s always cool to see other composite fabricators methods for making parts. Big takeaway I got from this video is a method for making a joggle
- “paper toweling” the cowl split line
- putting release tape on the throw away part
- build up the joggle area
- cure & dremel cut the remaining ligaments of the finished part allowing it to be cut free.
Mike is certainly an excellent role model when it comes to business & aviation and his content is something I enjoy normalizing to.

It’s an excellent example of how drones can be used for good and how to help with Reforestation efforts.
This video is a partnership with #Teamtrees (a not for profit fund raiser) with the goal of planting 20 Million trees by 1/1/2020 only 2 months away. Beyond drones Team Trees is using multiple methods to achieve the goal.
