Hi!.I´ve just to recive a gyro kit for my sleed. My good friend, Alex Brambilla, teach me about how to use it.
This is my first time trying shoot´ing with gyros.
Thanks for comments or tricks to use it. Bad or good day to do it, it was a very windy day and me a newbie.

Take a look the shoot.

That is remarkably stable for the amount of wind. If I tried to operate my rig in wind like that I'd look like a sailor returning to shore after a long trip. :P

I guess some questions are in order like:

What rig are you flying?

What Gyros did you get?

Look forward to learning more.

Thanks boy.
My rig is an Ultra2. Gyros, made by kenyon K-6.
Should be possible that I made the shot at 4:00 Pm. July...... 41º degrees of temperature. Too hot.
But the most important is...my first time with gyros.
Thanks again

why would you use GYROS on this shot? You are just carrying unnecessary weight around... go to the beach or any other high wind area.

my 2 cents

Amando,
Really nice space you have, is that your house? I want to see the other camera angle your girlfriend was getting. Also where did you mount them and how? Do you have any still pics.
I'm about to dive into using them myself.
Nice job!
Reid
