Gopro.com>>> Full HD super widescreen camera that is mountable just about anywhere

Posted on September 5, 2010 at 11:37pm 37 Comments

These camera's are $299, full widescreen HD, 2 hours of battery life. They come with a waterproof casing and are very resistant to shock. Combined with a 16Gb SD card, you can shoot about 4 hours of video. My brother works in LA and he just bought a few of these for a documentary he is going on oyster farming. He has some pretty impressive vids of dredging for the oyster bags under water. I think this would be a perfect addition to arduCopter.
Here are all the details and…

I hot… Continue

The video in the link is to a video of a camera that uses electromagnetic induction to supply power to the camera from the power lines. Near the end of the video they are showing a 4 armed copter that has two motors with blades on each arm to make an octocopter. They said it will be able to lift the 10 pound camera load with no problem. Has anyone else ever…

Over the last couple days I have been raping my bank account and getting everything together to make my UAV. This is by far one of the most exciting projects I have done. For only have being a member on this site for a couple months now, the benefits from this site and the help and the community has had a great impact on me as well as my informational well being on UAV design and technology.

Listen Taylor; Out of 'respect' for the way you want to reply to others, I deleted my responses. You, little buddy have much growing to do.
