CX-Cam flight test video

Over the holidays, I was working on something rather different. After much experimentation, tuning, and part-hunting, I now have a small aerial camera platform. This is something I've wanted to do since at least middle school, and technology has finally caught up.

The neat part, to me, is that it's nearly off-the-shelf hardware. It's based around a small radio-controlled helicopter and a commercially available wireless camera. (Both are modified, but not extensively.)

Perhaps most importantly, this is something that I'm having fun with, and that others are interested in — a nice vacation from my language/Forth work, which nobody ever comments on. :-)

Here's a video.
