IPAD and Trakker

thagerthager Posts: 5,182 Mega Baller
I used an IPAD last summer to record and analyze some runs. Found that it was easy and the subject could be enlarged on the spot with stop/start. Only problem was you needed a third person to do the vid which is not always possible. Anyway, after 2 years my missing Trakker showed up which got me thinking. How do I convert the Trakker for use? Answer was on Evil Pay for about $40.00
The Grafiti Nootle IPAD Tripod Mount and Nootle Pro Panhead fit the bid perfectly with no modification required.
Stir vigorously then leave!

    Excellent for instant playback, but aren't you concerned about the potentially high cost of a popped handle? It presents a pretty big target. ... Your ski should be your dance partner, not a wrestling opponent

    No, not really. No bigger than my head ,and I use a shock tube. I will have it on a lanyard. It might get pulled off the mount but not out of the boat. Also the screen faces away from the skier so am not worried about a shatter event. Besides, this is an IPAD II and I am due for a new one anyway!

    That's sweet - open the front window in a 197 or TXi and that thing becomes a sail - keep her closed and should be smooth sailing. Great idea. So that's 1x Trakker, 1xGraffitti Noodle iPad Tripod Mount & 1x Nootle Pro Panhead?

    My home built is on this thread with a sample video.
    Shakes no worse but no better then all the others. But it is lower. I like what you've done. That's cool.!! No way to get rid of the shake. From what I've seen the Wakeye seems to have the least but still has it. Doesn't matter though. Load the CoachMyVideo app to the IPad and you will never watch it in full speed anyway. Slowmo=unseen shaking. Can zoom way in using the app. Draw straight lines, boxes, circles and free hand. Do split screen analysis. You'll start feeling like John Madden. Very good app. PS. The app I used in the video clip is not CoachMyVidio and no where near as good.

    @Wish Coach's Eye is another app maybe worth looking into. Here's a story about it -

    I am planning to get a wake eye to use with my iphone 5 but i would be a little concerned with the abuse the jerking rope would do to the ipad even with the shock tube!

    No moving parts for jarring to cause any damage. Google LifeProof case and watch some videos of what guys do to IPhones, iPads and the like. Slack rope slap isn't even a thought after seeing that. All the case does is waterproof it and protect the glass. It's getting the crap jared out of it.
