At the weekly meeting on Monday 25th January the topic of the night was micro-helicopters and there use in movie making. Three club members shared the presentation, Peter Parker first showing six different types of remote controlled helicopters varying in size from 9 inch across to 24 inches. The larger models can be used to carry a video camera on special mounts and he showed a documentary of the development of the micro helicopter in movie making. He continued to demonstrate the method of controlling the aircraft and explained the difficulties and how to overcome them. Dave Weatherley continued by showing the helicopter he currently uses and the method of control it incorporating a mobile phone to watch the on board camera picture while piloting. The third speaker was Peter Craven, a qualified pilot, who was able to explain the CAA regulations that have to be adhered to when flying micro helicopters. During the final part of the presentation a number of movies where shown with examples of what can be achieved when the helicopters are used to their best advantage both for action shots and landscape scenes.
