We enjoyed shooting of aerobatics despite our fear for cameras that had to experience extreme conditions - speed exceeding 300 km/h and significant G force. We shot the test footage with Samsunge Gear 360 that can't replace classical GoPro rig in quality but thanks to low weight and aerodynamic shape it had the biggest chance to survive. Entire shooting brought several challenges such as mounting the camera on the plane, vibrations during flight and breaking the air flow around the plane. All we managed to successfully resolve and we didn't lose any of our cameras which was our biggest success :)
You can watch first shots of Aleš Baumrukr and his Christen Eagle II flying here:
You can watch more aerobatics with Aleš here:

We're looking forward to other aerial shooting and testing our camera's limits already!
