Nuttcaz! Help! I wrote you a PM but you never responded. Was your camera a special one? Were the images broadcast back to your computer or was there a harddrive on your helicopter? I want to know what the maximum range is from transmitter to helicopter. Will the transmitter work if your helicopter goes behind a building? Also, do they make a servo type of off / on switch? An example would be if I was to want to turn on christmas tree lights at the edge of my property which is 100 yards away I would want an off/on switch. Do they make such devices?

whoops, forgot to respond to that one, anyways I use a Samsung L100 digital camera and have it bolted to the front of my canopy. check here for a video about my helicam

as far as range, with 2.4ghz, if you can see it you can fly it, I don't think it'd still work if the heli went behind a building but I've never tried as thats a sure fire way to crash orange69 as long as you have power and signal going to the Rx then you can hook servos up to do pretty much anything you want. I know they make electronic switches to plug into the Rx but they're for smaller applications

the best thing about AP/AV is that you will ALWAYS get to see something new. Everything looks different 100ft up. Even neighbor hoods you lived in your whole life.

Thats a great part about RC Helis, there are lots of things to do, 3D - Scale - Aerial Photography/Videography - F3A??? (or something like that) - or just fly for fun
