Nice video. How do you get audio so clear like that to come up on the video's audio? I've always wondered how..
Thanks for the compliments!
I use a cheapo digital recorder to capture the ATC coms. I bought a "patch cable" that hooks into the airplane intercom system and I plug the cord into the mic in of the digital recorder. Type in aircraft patch cord in Google and it's the first link for the cord interface.
The reason I do this is that I want the engine sounds, so if I plug into the mic in of a camera, I would not get the engine sounds. My camera does not have a "mic in" plug so I didn't have a choice but to get the digital recorder.
The engine sounds are captured by my camera which is a very cheap 7 year old pocket size Kodak Easy share that sits on top of the glareshield. I have a binder behind the camera to prop it against the wind screen so it won't shift.
During the flight, for synchronization purposes, I say "camera on" and "camera off" so that I know where in the audio file where I was videoing the flight. Of course as you can see, I edit that out in my video.
Literally no setup time before flight. Got it almost down to a "plug and play" Plop the camera on the glareshied, plug the recorder on, start record and off I go.
