LOW COST CAMERA & SWITCH FOR ARIEL PHOTOS

HI All
some had asked me how do i take ariel pic.
OK!! this is it!!
get the camera--
GSMART MINI2 Mustek
low cost ..light and simple to use.
2.1 mega pic and can do about 2.5 minutes video flims.
now!! unpack the camera and solder 2 short wires as paralel to the operating switch . ( shorting the two wires--as you presset the camers pic switch.( not the main power switch!!)
solder to the end of the two wires a nice small connector.
now!!
build your self a circut--as in this link..the main thing is the relay --must be a small ( very small and light relay)
http://www.stefanv.com/rcstuff/onoff.htm
the circut and the camera as in these pic:
the camera and the elctrons circut is 45 grams ( less then 2 OZ)
the connector of the control will be connected to the reciever to ON/OFF chanel.
the output relay two wires will be welded to a nice small connector - the oposit of the one that is out of the camera.
now..connect the two connectors ( camera and board output)
connect to the on/off chanel in the reciever.
push power on to power on the camera.
now..when you push ON/Off the switch ( retracted weels) on the transmitter..
the camera should take a one photo.
REMEMBER that the camera has a 90 second power off so you need to take the pic beetween --less then 90 sec.
on the high resulution..i can get 35 pic....thats allot.
you can see some of the pic that i took yesturday and today at:
