I hope you will enjoy my compilation video from 2017. I included clips from nearly all my flights from 2016 in chronological order, which mixes them up nicely. It's a bit long at 11 minutes, but the clips (all 143 of them) are only 4 to 5 seconds long, so you can't be bored for long. I had a great time flying last year with lots of amazing scenery from the "Land of Enchantment", a some trips into Colorado, Arizona and Utah, the highlight being the trip to the Bar10 Ranch on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.

For the best view, pipe it directly from YouTube to your smart TV and enjoy the show. Search on "jefftrike" to find my channel. Jeff Gilkey

EXCELLENT video Jeff. I never knew trike flying was so serene! Seriously, looks like a great way to document some awesome flying. The location captions were especially nice touch. How did you achieve exact camera placement each time? Was GoPro used, or another make?

Thanks for the comments. I have a GoPro 3 on each wing, and I leave the mount and camera case on the wing when I am not flying, so the camera is in the same spot every time I fly. The wing mounted camera, and the 120 degree field of view work great to capture the experience of flying.
