A little Success with Arduino Ethernet , Vapix 3 and PTZ camera for Telemaster

Plan is to mount under fuselage of Telemaster 12' and Mugin when it arrives.

Camera Position is being controlled by Arduino via ethernet, Pan, Til,t Zoom  , and record to local SD,and  h264 stream, works so far.

Nice thing about this camera is its speed. Also does great with its built in video stabilization.

My plan is to pass a Lat, Long and Zoom level to the Arduino and let it keep that camera position. Will plan on listening to mavlink telemetry port for GPS data, desired position.

Axis Q6035E Camera is capable of  Tilt: 220°, 0.05° – 450°/s, HDTV 1080p 1920x1080

And H.264: Up to 30fps (60hz in HDTV 1080p)

Also has built-in "Auto Tracking"... Not sure how well this will work...  Have my doubts.. Ground tests are OK...

not after you strip off the all-metal housing just leave the dome protruding under the aircraft.

also stripping the heater, fan blower, heater fins, Power supply boards.  Overall very light , most of the weights is where it all mounts and shroud.

I personally think the Elphel camera is a good choice. But no gimbal yet.

@Eraser. Thanks. 1.2 pounds ( 544 grams). That is  interesting.
