Slow, gorgeous flight of a Belite Aircraft UltraCub is featured in our new video, which has been posted on Youtube.

The aircraft is powered by a four stroke 1/2Vw engine. The video lets you feel what it is like to takeoff, fly low and slow, and land in an UltraCub.
The video was shot with a high end Canon 5D camera by Neil Bontrager; he also did the editing / post-production work. Neil is a professional cinematographer and I am beyond grateful for his contributions. You can find Neil here: www.neilbontrager.com
Although I’ve run this picture before, I get a big grin out of how solid our high definition / 24 frame cinema quality camera setup worked. I’ve been using the picture of my airplane with the Canon 5D mount as a header photo on this blog.
1) What do you think of the video? If you like it, please share this FB post with your friends. I think it captures the beauty of ‘low n slow’, along with the Kansas landscape, and the joy of flying around the pattern.
2) What do you think of the Belite as a cinematography camera platform?
3) What do you think of the ability of the UltraCub to quickly takeoff and smoothly land?
4) Do I look happy at the conclusion of the flight?
That’s a lot of questions. Enough for now.
