- Full HD video of flight: Each client will go home with the SD card from their aircraft which has amazing HD footage from three cockpit cameras recorded onto a single 16GB SD card. This is the way we verify and validate each “guns kill” that was made from each aircraft ensuring that the kill was valid, in range, legal, and lasting the required two to five seconds of pipper on target. “There’s nothing like a minimum range ‘guns kill’ because there are no points for second place!”
