Default How to make DG watchable on TV


How cool would it be to watch discs fly through the woods from a disc's perspective? I can't find any of these frisbee cameras available, but I want one, or to make one. Not quite sure how this would affect flight other than reduced glide/distance.

Given the spin of a disc I think it would just make people sick.

No....It's got a wind vein on top the disc, so the camera is not fixed to the disc's spin, but oriented to the disc's flight pattern.

Oh, that's pretty cool then. Make it 3D and launch a few on tight wooded holes and that would look sweet!

Can't get on Vimeo.com but there is a video of someone putting a Go Pro Camera on a Champ destroyer and throwing it if someone wants to look it up.

I think the camera would still have some affect on stability of the discs or that guy really can't throw flat at all
