That is Awesome!  One of the best and most creative videos I've seen in a while.  Thanks for sharing it Ed.

Very nice piece of video. I will ask the obvious question. Where is the person that spun the M/R?

In the comments for the video, the poster says that he "gets the blades spinning as fast as possible by hand and then hides"

It is definitely a very cool effect but certainly would take some time and effort.

Has anybody used a gopro camera mounted inside the cabin to shoot video of scenery outside the cabin?
I've used one with a suction mount on the windscreen at a little above knee level right next to the door, but often get reflections showing feet, the fire extinguisher, etc in the lower part of the picture.
Is there a better ( or any) location to mount the camera to get rid of these reflections?

If you can drape or duct tape a black cloth to cover the rear of the camera, you'll get rid of the reflections.  Tape it above and below the camera, or what the hell, all around it would be better.  Had this problem shooting in F-15's and F-16's, so we'd take up a piece of cloth to cover the instrument panel and we'd take off all of the colored patches on our flight suits as well.  Duct tape didn't stick too well on the canopies when pulling g's.

We loved this video so much, we actually "adapted" it for use in a marketing video for a clipper we are selling.  The spinning/circling action of the camera going around the heli makes quite an impact- and made us look much more professional on the video production front that we really are (not at all):
