GoPro Time Lapse Flight

I was able to get up in the Lance this morning for a little flight and decided to continue my experimenting with the GoPro camera.  This time I made a time lapse video out of stills shot every second.  So basically my 1 hour joyride is seen in about 2 minutes.

It was a nice morning and it was still relatively cool out, by Florida summer standards anyway.  I took off to the west and climbed to 4,500' and then turned north over Jacksonville International Airport.  Once I was clear of their airspace to the north I turned towards St Simons, GA and descended to about 1,000' over the coast and then turned south towards home.

Oh yeah, the autopilot was working!  Of course it was relatively calmer air today so I still think I might have a loose connection somewhere.  I'll dig deeper in two weeks during the annual inspection.  Anyway, here's the video:


  1. Geoff ... New private pilot here in St Augustine ... I fly out of KSGJ ... Love the video ... I have been looking at Go Pro for some time know ... Really like what Go Pro does for aviation video ... Think it might be time to pull the trigger ... Keep the video's coming ... bobt

    1. Thanks Bob and congrats on your PPL! I'm enjoying the GoPro a lot and hope to learn and do some other stuff with it soon.

  2. Thanks for the fun video, Geoff. Looks like you've got a rock-steady mount and that makes it easier on the viewer's eyes.
    I count NLT three antennas on your dash. It might be a good time to recap some of your avionics. Nice post. -C.

    1. Those three basically feed my Garmin 496. One is the XM Satellite Radio puck, the small black one is the external GPS antenna, and the big one is my Zaon XRX which displays traffic.
