Where are you putting your minature camera on your Raptor 30's.

I'm looking at getting a survellience camera and putting it maybe on the bottom where the reciever and battery go at the front.

I'm probably going to have pan and tilt functions, so where would be another good place to put it?

Wait just one minute!

Are you seriously asking people in this forum to tell you where to put it?

Oh boy...I can hardly wait for what happens next, grin.

I sure am!!

Sigh, and sits here thinking of the posibilities. It's a small camera, so I'm not really going to have to make anything for it to go on the skids or anything, unless it can't go anywhere else

You wanna know where you can stick that camera?!

Seriously, put it wherevery you like (ie side, belly, front). The main factors to keep in mind are vibration isolation and exhaust. I dont know of anyone using Raptor 30s but that doesnt mean anyone isnt. Someone might chime in.

Copy and paste in address bar.

That is what I'm looking at getting. That size actually. I don't think that SPECIFIC one is wireless, of course that's what I need. This size would be great because of it's size, the 30 would easily pick it up. Power supply would be from 3-4 series wired Li-Pos, which also wouldn't add very much weight....

I have seen some that are places off to the side, but I don't really like that set up that much. I think the only other place would be under the heli at the skids.

Any other options?

I put together a simple pvc frame,and
did a flight yesterday.
4 lbs frame, 1 1/2 camera.
Evo 50 lifted it but,
the motor was pretty warm,
and the strain seems considerable
on the motor.
video came out ok.
Going to try something different,
because I used a counterweight to the camera.

The link didnt work for me so I didnt see what type of camera your going to use but, I have yet to try to put a cam on the horizontal fin of the tail boom. Point it forward and out a bit to catch a lot, some, or none of the heli in the frame. But I dont know what your looking for in the shot, but I've wanted to do this and have yet to get to it. Vibration maybe a problem to overcome with some foam or so but you never know unless you try it. Mike

I directly mounted a wireless, it
picks up vibration bad.
Home depot has some nice
foam, the kind that wraps
around aircondition
tubing.

I was surprised just how much my little 30 could pick up. As the others have said directly mounting it won't produce very good results. I ended up building a pvc frame for my hawk as well. The pipe foam does dampen vibration quite well. My frame cost me a total of about $18 worth of parts.

TT39 Hawk Sport on my cheapo mount.

These were actually taken by an OS32 powered Hawk Pro, but with my mount. The OS32 also seemed not to have difficulty lifting the weight.
