View Full Version : New GWS video plane project

09-20-2006, 04:18 AM
Ok since I had some great results from my onboard video setup with my GWS tigermoth (yes thats right gws tigermoth)

I decideid I would go with another plane that has a little more room to put better items in! I went with a Hitec long range rec (says it about a mile away) my eyes could not see it at that distance anyways! If I can get to 2000 feet Im going to be a happy camper!)

And the plane I picked since I had one that was 99% built was a stock gws dhc-2 beaver that has been upgrade with a bp21 brushless motor I flew the plane and it get up alot faster then my tigermoth so it should make for some good video.

Here are some pictures of my setup!

and a test picture shot from the mounted camera to check position!

For those of you who have not seen the tigermoth video

I like it, Cover the mic hole with some clear tape to cut down on some wind noise and vibration. More than enough power to get some good loops on video for us.:D

Nice setup! What camera are you using?

I guess one that you cant buy anymore!

Funny I did a search for a 5 in 1 edvr a couple months ago and found one and paid for it and a couple days later I got it and I thought nothing of it, now no one seams to carry it!

I did a search and found a website and he says he might have a long term supplier but he has not replied to my emails!

So all I can say do a search on google yahoo or anywhere and if your lucky enough to find a 5 in 1 edvr camera grab one they are so much fun!

Stay tunned for more videos!

ya, the quality seemed to be very good for such a small camera. I am hoping to find one that can be lifted in my Blade CP pro and still be good quality.

and how much did it cost you when you got it?
