Default 117 HeliCam!!!

FINALLY got around to mounting my little $35 ebay wireless camera on the nose of my 117.. and recorded some video.. it's really pretty cool to do! :-) You have to adjust your trim to accomodate the little bit of extra weight on the nose, but got some really good video!

It's a cheap, easy, and fun thing to do.. ya'll outta consider it! I mounted it atop of the battery, so that I didnt get any exhaust on it (which was my biggest concern about doing it), but it worked out really good. I used some double-sided tape and then strapped it down with zip-ties to stabilize it.. still some vibration, but tolerable in the video.

When I get it transferred from VHS to AVI (or whatever) I'll post it :-p
