    I love the videos that combine an on-board camera with an on the ground shot looking up at the pad.

    At LDRS, I noticed several people had little rigs that had GoPro cameras attached to get that exact shot.

    Anyone have any plans or images of something like this?

    GoPro makes a tripod base for their cameras. You may want to give this a try.

    Nice website. Those shots are fantastic. It makes me almost want to give up, before I've even started! "I'll never be that good!"

    It wold be great if they attended LDRS34 and we could sign up on site to record whatever launch we wanted to film.

    I would love to attend but I'm in New Mexico, so there's that. My brother even lives in Rochester but I do have a conflict with another launch in UT in June. Perhaps next time.
