Well I have just finished my modification on my rebuilt S107 and it is looking good!! I had to dump the camera battery and wire it into the Helicopter battery so remains to be tested.
I have taken a lot of time with the mod and very hopefully!!! Tomorrow it will give some great views of lift off and crash / ahem landing.
No money is wasted here well may be.
After a lot of work, I got the camera working on the copter, to save weight I wired the camera into the copter battery.
I did a few flights and with the camera. And found the flaw in my design.
The camera lost power as I started the lift off because the motors draw all the power and the camera did not have enough power to work.
So it will need its own battery to film anything, this being to heavy for the heli to lift, I need to do some more thinking as to getting a lighter battery for the camera.
All in all a bit of a failure, but I am having fun doing it, I will keep on trying.
Could you do dales battery mod? And create a lighter airframe with plastic? And can you find a new motor that's about the same size, maybe a little bigger but more powerful? It might can't lift up off the ground, but hand launching it might work. The helicopter uses more juice lifting up of the ground then it being hand launched.
I bought the Sanhuan SH-6030 Spy camera heli,did a review on it some time ago http://sanhuansh6030.com/ What I am doing is to strip the camera gear off,however it has a remote you can switch camera off and on when flying-tend to feel the remote holds the power for the camera not the heli battery-must admit not really up with electronics-I feel Supernova has more experience in this area-Interesting concept tho,as Syma company checks our forum,who knows,they might produce a Syma heli with a spy camera-woo
Just a point,like the Sanhuan 6030,The videos are small tho but the concept is good,does not fly as well as the Syma S107,guess a bit biased as love my Syma helis.
