Terry's homebrew Tricopter

I am working but a distraction dropped in.



And in a park.


I recently bought a tiny key fob shaped "spy" camera which we put on board one of the tricopters:



These Tricopters were built from instructions on RCExplorer.

Peter,
Amazing footage from your on board camera on the tricopter.

It's a tiny little recording camera that is built in to a car key fob. Easy to see how secret footage could be recorded, but due to the low weight - perfect for on board video.

Terry is doing some work to reduce vibration for next time.

So how does it go lifting 40M of wire into the air to make a 160M 1/4 wave or similar? How long can it run continuously? Perhaps it can drop a wire on top of a goal post?

Nice idea but I think the battery only lasts about 20 minutes so a kite or ballon might be more practical.
