[8D]I have mounted one on my r/c electric formula one race car and it worked great, I mounted it on the side pod and you could see the front tire just like the cams on the real race cars, I then tried it on my goldber tiger 60 airplane and I was amazed at the range that the little cam had, minor problew with jitters and the bright sun, we found that the pic was better through a sunglass lense I want to try it on my boat but the 36in. pro boat shockwave I have is a little unstable I think, I may wait till next season when I have my 48in. gas boat built. Let me know if you try it and how you make out, Butch in Niagara Falls

Try this, <www.vac-u-boat.com>, then go to the link about 'camera' boats. Not a 'typical' boat/camera set up since it's specially designed for a camera, but does shows what's possible.

A couple of things to think about are the size and weight of the video system, the size and weight of the power source (battery), and does your model have enough 'room' to stuff all that stuff inside. Do you want a 'live' TV system or a 'still'/recorded system? Each has their 'pro's and 'con's, each are possible, just depends on what you have and/or how much money you want to throw at it (or divert from other projects?). A 'neat' idea, though!

This is 'off topic' but take a look at the 'rental boat' thingy at the above site. I/you may not plan on renting boats but the huge battery is an interesting idea. Lots of interesting stuff there...
