Got UAV ?

Having something like this "eye in the sky" might be useful, and good fun for the kids. hmmm...

  • 4:3 Real-time video from remote control helicopter or aircraft.
  • 16:9 720p HD video recording of up to 5 hours onto 16GB SD card, supporting post flight data transfer.
  • Separate real-time GPS navigation data download available.

  • Radio-Control signals up to helicopter/aircraft locate the control station. --> Move transmitter away from high value items. 
  • RF video broadcast can be seen by anyone viewing same frequency. --> Minimally Encrypted Video downlink.
  • Loiter time. Cycle time to land, refuel, relaunch. --> Multiple units.
  • Daylight cameras.  --> Night-time sensors.
This vendor appears to have run out, for now. But FYI - The gear is out there.
