New Camera and New Possibilities

After watching a bunch of other Youtube flying videos, I realized I just didn't have the right equipment to make the kind of videos I wanted to.  Up until now, I have been using a couple of old GoPros (Hero 3 and Hero 4), a basic Canon camcorder and of course my iPhone.

So today I just got my newest toy (I mean equipment), the Garmin Virb Ultra 30.

This camera was recommended by a fellow Cirrus pilot and I am amazed at what it can do.  It looks like a GoPro and even uses the same mounting brackets.  Today I tried to test it out by making a  simple video. Have a look and let me know what you think in the comments:
After the flight, I realized I didn't have the audio setup correctly.  But I figured out what I did wrong ... So next flight should include ATC audio.

With this new gear, now I need to do dream up a few more things for my aviation bucket list :-)

Cheers,
