I want to find out if this is possible with a wireless unit or something. Has any ever tried this in a cx2?

Sony DSC R1 but you might have to modify the landing gear a bit.

The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III looks nice too, but you will need lots of bungees and a good launching arm.

Seriously, it could be done, but you need to find a pretty light wireless cam. Maybe even one that feeds off the main battery if the voltages are close enough. Even a slightly larger heli would be more capable. The CX2 doesn't handle much weight or wind.

I tried it like two years ago, that thing couldn't lift a penny
, so I got a blade cp, which was also crap
, so then I got a t-rex 450 and that got me into AP , then I got a t-rex 600 and I now make a living out of AP
[.
Now I'm breeding t-rex 600s and we are expecting a gasser

Yep, that's how many of us got started in AP. I started with a Blade CX and now love my Logos. I haven't tried the last one yet Juan.... Let us know how that turns out.

I have the same problem with my Jokers, cameras too, glad I'm not the only one with this problem.

Sorry for all the sarcasm...sort of... ok not really but I couldnt resist and the for the record the 1D is too heavy!!
To answer your question you might be able to pull it off with the following: range video 100 mw dlink(or what ever is the lightest) with their board camera tapping off your lipo that powers the helicopter to power the camera and dlink. This will get you a video feed to the ground, nothing high quality. Go to supercircuits and get the 2.4 ghz portable rx and dvr all in one unit. (its actually a nanny cam may be cheaper elsewhere) This will let you view and record the video sent from the heli onto a CF card, real time full color. You then can copy to computer edit etc. Other suggestions use the flat bottom blades possiby use a pandoras box for a front mount, I'm sure there are many other options out there.

Now if you want a real AP bird PM me as I will be selling my maxi joker RTF with TX and mount very soon at a great deal.

Seriously, the cx will not lift anything, I tried lots of configurations and it will not work, or it might work for aprox 30 seconds and then your batteries will be drained. Start with a t-rex 450 that should get you started.
