First photographs from my T-rex
Ok finished building my Rex, here are the first pictures I took. I've been getting some blury pictures how can that be fixed? is it vibration from the heli causing it or is it they're no focusing right?

What camera are you using? Experiment with a faster shutter setting and see if it works better.

After much research I bought the Panasonic FX-8. It's got image stabilisation and most importantly it takes SD card. Cost of Sony stick and Olympus XD cards is double that of SD. That reason alone was enough for me to exclude these as options. The other factor for me was the weight. The FX-8 weighs about 129 grams which the Rex can handle comfortably. Results I have got from this camera have been good overall. Just need to fine tune blades and balance them to minimise vibration.

Hey Minchatter, does image stab really make a difference?

Well done, cranester. You too, Mindchatter.

I can look up each of your camera's weight, but make only a guess at what the bracket and landing gear add. Does y'all have any measurements or guesstimates of your total increased weight?

I would also be very interested in any other information anyone can offer about motors, ESC's, blades, amp draw, temperature, duration . . . etc.

What can y'all share?

I do absolutly nothing as far isolating the camera rig from the heli and just about every photo comes back clear as a bell. My wife is a horrible photo taker, the v530 makes her seem like a pro..lol

Boidman,
I have never checked the weight on it but it flys great. The motor & battery are always warm to the touch after a 10min flight.
setup:
Mega 16/15/3 with 13t pinion
Align 35a non gov esc
TP 3s 11.1v 2100 mah lipo's
Futaba GY401 gyro
Align 335mm wood blades
stock flybar paddles
full size 8ch futaba receiver

Canon PowerShot A530. $190 USD. First-class features and image quality for a relatively inexpensive price. No image stabilization. Tests from a moving vehicle over a bumpy road using a rigid (vibration transmitting) mount show that only minimum effort is needed to get good quality images with no detectable motion/vibration blur.

The total weight added is 9.6 ounces. Not bad, but I'm still looking for motor and/or blades that might net the best duration and component temperatures for the buck.

No images yet, because boid building ain't done, done.

It would be good to hear from more folks.

I finished my camera mount, it is really simple but woks great and is very light , completely isolates vibration and I am now getting perfect pictures.(plus the heli is way more stable than with my old front mount) I am now only limited by the camera, I really have to get a better one.

Check my gallery for light and effective Trex mount
All of the photos in my gallery are from my Trex. All up weight 1000gms. BTW you don't "need" a big gyro and TR servo when doing AP. That can save a lot of weight. I now use a Futaba190 and HS56 combo and it works great for AP, even in 10mph wind.
