Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Martin asks: If you were to drive a Cadillac Escalade over a GoPro/or other small video camera at 90 mph, would the camera get moved by the draft/breeze created? BTW, when’s the last time you drove a big S class or an Escalade?
My reply: I’m assuming you meant with – rather than over!
Assuming with, it would depend on how you mounted the unit. Certainly it can be mounted to stay on the vehicle at 90 (it’s not uncommon to take videos at such speeds). I haven’t done this myself because I haven’t got a GoPro. However, I have friends who have them – and they mount them on their helmets/bikes – and go a lot faster than 90. No issues with the camera flying off at speed.
Assuming over, I doubt the GoPro would survive!
On the rest: I had an S-Class last fall and currently have an E53 AMG; my review of this one will be up shortly! I haven’t had an Escalade in about two years because of my contretemps with GM. But I still have some connections that get me access to vehicles ex officio.
I should be getting some seat time in one later this summer – assuming Corona Fever hasn’t completely laid low the country.
