Flying Monkey Video Downlink

This is the FM video downlink equipment that we will use to view real-time camera position. Tonight I put it all together in anticipation of getting the camera gimbal in the mail this week.

Starting on the left is the receiver powered by a 11.1V lipo battery. This video signal is then fed into the box for the video goggles. The whole setup is mobile and will be built into a fanny-pack for the cameraman to wear. On the right is the 2W 1.2GHz transmitter that will feed the view directly from the Panasonic HD camera right to the ground. This setup will allow the cameraman to see exactly what the camera is pointed at. I should have atleast a few extra channels on the cameraman's R/C system to allow zooming in addition to pan and tilt!

Very cool! Glad you figured out how to make it completely mobile. I have next week off so if you get it ready by then we should go try it out!
