Default Slash 2wd VXL onboard video

Hi all, here's a project I have been working on. It's a slash 2wd with a mini cam from e-flight. It's not bad, but I'll get a better video camera with wider angle lens next time. I've posted this test run on youtube.

Here's an update on my refitted Greene-Machine onboard camera stability test. I'm using a JVC addiction video camera. The original footage is 1080 full HD and is incredicble!

That's really cool that the camera swivels in the direction you're turning. Never seen that b4. Very slick. Do you just have a second linkage from the steering servo connected to the camera swivel?

I'm running a y-harness from the rx to a second servo inside the cabin. The camera is mounted on a swivel that is connect to a servo steering rod which is connected to futaba standard servo. So I'm running basically a dual steering rig except the second servo steers a camera. Once I go FPV(first person view), I will be controlling both the camera rotation and elevation separately from the steering in the near future I hope.

It's not a slash anymore but it's the same guts. Here's my newest video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yS5ZG...zDYi_CeMqavrlg
