Aerial Video Cam

at 5:34 am. Filed under DIY Hacks

Got a RC chopper, why not take a camera into the sky for some aerial pictures?

“Here’s a 3.4 I picked today. I sliced off the battery compartment and installed a servo plug so the camera can be powered by my plane/helicopters receiver. Works great. The 3 wires you see are from a servo extender, I’m not using the yellow (signal) wire…just the black and orange power ones. While it’d be cool to remotely start recording, with 20 minutes of 320 x 240 and video editing software it wasn’t a priority right now. If I decide to up it to 640 x 480 it might be something to thing about.”
