    RC controlled moving Pilot/photographer

    After making the attached video I realized how much better it would have looked if the pilots head were to move as a pilots would when maneuvering so I began to make a pilots head that uses two servos. The head will look up, down, left and right. Of there also is a video camera mounted inside his head so the pilots view will also be recorded.

    RE: RC controlled moving Pilot/photographer

    Just got home after buying an FPV transmitter and reciever. Plans have changed. Now the pilot/photographer will be wired to its own reciever and will be controlled on the ground by someone with a transmitter and a video display. The person on the ground can look around at whatever they want including the ground and other airplanes (like during a dogfight) They and others on the ground will get a pilots view of whats going on from the cockpit.

    Well, finally got to test the pilot/photographer in the cockpit. I will detail it for looks and then install the system.

    RE: RC controlled moving Pilot/photographer

    Wow, being able to look down at a fully detailed cockpit during the in-flight video is going to be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo cool! [8D] Very nice job! Also I sort of like the way the pilot "leans forward" when he his head bumps against the headrest. I'd leave him where he is. Getting two different Tx operators to coordinate their actions through is going to be a real challenge.
