Default Digital camera hookup on airplane??

With the price of digital cameras coming way down, I would like to use one for aircraft. Any information on a hooking one up to a spare channel? I know a lot of you have done it maybe you can pass along some information. Thanks and have a good day. Doc

i gotta run now... but i'll send you tons of links on many different setups... the idea is basically the same.. add an additional servo somewhere.. and make it activate the button somehow.. (many techniques).....most digital cameras I know... you need to hold the button half way for some while, for it to focus.. and then press it harder, for the picture... this might be a problem... because it will be harder to do with a servo.. may be not... anyways.. that's how its done usualy..... just flip your switch on a radio.. and the camera shoots the pics... and you can also have another servo, to move the camera, for different angles....

anywayz.. i'll send some links later, after i come home...

Default ok

ok i'm back from shoveling the snow... we got like 30 cm in Toronto today....

here are the links: I'm sure I have more of what you need... but I can't find them at the moment.... Um....the last couple are video camera setups.. but i'm sending it anyways..

Don't forget to use SEARCH in RCU....you'll find a lot of info that way.
