:-D :-D :-D :-D
makes me want to abandon the domestic paperwork and go to the airfield to work on the Nipper!

There seems to be some vertical 'tramping' on the forward looking camera. Is this the mount flexing under G or prop slipstream influence?

Jolly Good Show

Hi Jim

Thanks for the comments, you should get into the air with your Nipper

The mount is inflexible so it must be the propwash - i will check the wing camera to see if the "tramping" is something in the airframe - thanks for noticing,

regards
Sven

Most likely engine vibration. I get the same on Nipper wing and my RV4

Smashing video.
Do you mount the camera using the wing tip fixing that holds the tie-down fitting?

Many thanks Jim, the camera is attached with a gopro stickermount, but it has a safety wire connected to the tie-down fitting in case the mount fails (i have lost a camera in the past :(
