GoPro Girandola - Onboard Video
We mounted a GoPro Hero 3+ Black Edition to a Girandola at the 2014 Pyrotechnics Guild International Convention in Mason City, IA. More info about the annual convention can be found at PGI.org.
A Girandola is a flying horizontal wheel. It uses rocket motors to spin and then fly. We mounted the GoPro on a gyro stabilizer to prevent it from spinning with the bamboo frame.
A behind the scenes look at the GoPro Girandola will be shown in the upcoming documentary on fireworks called Passfire. This will debut in July 2015. You can find more info about Passfire at Passfiremovie.com.
