|This page will describe my aerial video setup on my Graupner Terry.|
|A small and fast plane for video|
|The Terry is a great flying little plane and was pretty easy to set up for wireless video. It covers a lot of ground pretty quickly but still lands at a reasonable speed.|
|Here you can see the overall layout of the video system on the plane. The camera is taped on the leading edge of the wing and feeds the video into my new 200mw 2.4ghz transmitter from Black Widow A/V. Power is shared with the main RC battery via a small adapter jack I made. A simple 5v regulator steps the voltage down to a level appropriate for the transmitter and camera.|
|Another perspective of the installation.
The 200mw transmitter has a very small profile which minimizes wind drag.
The motor system is a Mega 16/15/6 motor, Castle Creations 25amp brushless controller being fed by 8 hecells, and a 7x4.5 prop. I did not prop the plane aggressively as I wanted run-time over vertical performance.
