Thanks for watching.  That was some cool GoPro video from the glider.  Ya, I use the defogger strips out of convenience with the GoPro.

Oh ya, I see what you mean.  I fly gliders and have shot some gopro in those.  Like here. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3IG9AHPOkxE  My GoPro is sort of yellow cast which I take out in editing and usually add a little contrast to make it pop.  I assume you know about the little cardboard inserts GoPro sells to deal with the housing fogging up?  Also, open the housing near you car AC running, then place the camera in and seal it.  This helps keep the humidity low in the housing.  Good Fun.  I like that pivot jibe you did from the mast view at Maumee.  ...

Thanks Aaron for watching.  The 960P mode was the r4 GoPro setting. The 1080P was the r5 setting.  I experimented with both.  I found if you point the GoPro down more on the water and less horizon, the video does not look so dizzy but when going slower, you can get some great vidoe in r4 mode angled toward the horizon.

Nice angle. You could try the r4 mode on the GoPro which is much wider.

Ezzy sails have a mast end cap that is adjustable.  I used GoPro Helmet Strap Mount (see link) and used the Ezzy nylon end mast cap strap to  secure the camera.  Sorry, no picture of camera mount at this time.
