Hi Guys:

Been rc pilot for a couple years, and want to add aerial photography to my list of available services for my company. We currently service the Real Estate market here in Palm Beach, FL with IPIX 360 photography and videography. Here is the lame questions:

I want to equip a Raptor 90 with an aerial rig. I know most of you will recommend a 90 size electric, but that is not within my reach at this time.

1. Who or where can I find a kit or plans for a camera isolation mount?
2. What is the industry norm for camera selection? I hear the Sony is nicer then the Nikon. I shoot with a 12 megapixel Nikon Body now, but that is overkill for aerial.
3. How can I fire the shutter remotely?
4. Where can I get information on the live video equipment, necessary to tx from the heli to the ground for framing the shots?

Again, I was up front when I said I am just entering this realm. Me and my co-pilot appreciate all your help and suggestions.

Thanks.

John

Yes, There are answers to all of your concerns and they are as follows:
Camera mounts(vibration isolation included): helicamsolutions.com or
air-foilhelicams.com, Downlink applications can be obtained from blackwidowav.com(very inexpensive heli to ground downlink devices to frame your shots. I use a Logo 20 electric heli for my AP and some of the aforementioned equipment on my AP work but, will work very nicely with a nitro or gasser heli. Good luck!

JG, the Helicam Solutions camera mounts have an optional trigger that can be purchased to trigger your shutter. You can also purchase a remote trigger using an led for the camera click here

Here's how I trigger my sony DSC V1

Here is how I trigger my Canon Rebel

You can also purchase an IR trigger if the camera is equipped with that feature.
