You definitely have some talent. Not only do you you have to fly the thing but make sure your getting the shot you want. Which by the way do you fly it while seeing through the camera at all?

it is possible I suppose but I fly by visual contact (for now) The helicopter is equipped with a real-time microwave video downlink to a 10" flat screen LCD display on the ground that a camera operator uses. The camera can be controlled by a separate controller for pan/tilt/zoom/etc.

In the futre I plan on equipping the rig with a fully autonomous GPS guidance syetm that will allow it to fly out of visual range. That system will be used for Tactical Law Enforcement and other public safety services.

thanks for the positive feedback guys.

Outstanding! Outstanding concept, outstanding video editing, web page.. The whole setup you've got running just looks top notch.

Gotta be honest, I remember you posting about this some time ago and I figured it for a bit of a hair-brained idea due to loose you a lotta money. But now that I see the finished product I've completly changed my opinion. You're gonna make a killing.. I doubt anybody can offer such a service for that price.

Very well done!
