Retire early & live your bucket-list

How it was done | Pitts Special and GoPro 360 Max

This is how it was done

I mounted a GoPro 360 max on a Pitts Special to make a video, “Flying the Pitts”,  for our local pilots group called the HillBilly Squadron.  It looks like a multi-camera shoot, but was done entirely with just one GoPro camera.  The GoPro 360 Max  allowed me to edit different views from the same scenes, allowing the look of multiple cameras in a cramped cockpit that barely had room for even one GoPro.

I show you the mounting brackets that I used to mount the GoPro 360 max, and where I choose to mount the GoPro to allow the different angles needed to look like it was done with more than one camera.

"Mercenary with a Camera"

Dan started a photography business at 13.  After a winter day that was 18 degrees below zero, he went on vacation to the Florida Keys to warm up, and stayed for 28 years.  He was financially free at 38 and retired. He met a cute blond and fell in lust.  She fell in love (with his stuff),  and they spent money like drunken sailors.  When the money ran out, she ran out, (with her cocaine dealer).  Dan and his camera went back to work, and he retired a second time 48 months later, at age 44.  Then he did everything on his bucket list (except for seeing the Northern Lights).  Then he was bored and went looking for something to do with his time, so he built two airplanes.  After the planes were done he got bored again, so he started this blog, to show you how to communicate with video in today’s world, and become financially free in only a few short years, just like he did.
