WOW! This guy seems to have it together! The quote below would be a moot point for me- I would die out at -20 before the battery did! Thanks for the link. His plane looks like my Porter- but with tractor twins. Great minds think alike, eh? uh-huh.


"-20deg.c, very cold. The batteries
I use is a Li-ion 700mah-3pcs. They
do not like the chilling, they died out
after 7minutes."

The plane he is using is a Multiplex Moviestar. They are supposed to be available in the US now for about $125 Notice the yagi antenna on his helmet. Thinking of trying that myself with a patch antenna. Would look kinda Buck Rogers goofy but I bet he gets great video that way!

I bet I can put a patch antenna on one (Going for a hardhat and not bicycle lid) pretty easily.

Yeah, that's a good way to go with the pilot helmet Rx. This would eliminate the need for an Rx stand, and it's auto tracking as long as the pilot is watching his plane.

You could go further with this and put a digital camcorder and battery in a back pack, and even further by adding a small video monitor to the helmet that hangs down so the pilot can glance at it and see what he is filming.

Reminds me of the guy who strapped a laptop, camera and wireless internet modem to himself. He'd walk around campus uploading images of what he was doing to the internet in virtual real-time.

And yes, it would be a super-geek look, but who here is really worried about what we look like? I was un-cool before un-cool was cool. [8D]

WOW, that guy rocks! His craftsmanship is great, most of that stuff looks factory. I think I have read on this form of other people doing most of what he is showing but he put it all together in a great package. Kind of looks like $'s aren't too big of an object though. Wish I could spend like that.
