Here is my design to let you use a gopro in the rain or on the water(like I do with my fpv boat) and hopefully stop water drops from staying on the lens.
I have cut down a car windscreen wiper rubber blade and epoxied this to crushed alloy tube that is mount the a traxxas micro wp servo.
Any thought s to improve would be great :-)
Stay tuned for a video of my next fpv boat adventure !

Here's a fun way to add rc controlled wiper to your gopro and so you can fpv and not have water drops blocking your view.
Rainex will work well, but theres no fun it that is there now.
I will try to use foam and wetsuit material as the wiper blade instead of rubber to see what happens.Other wise maybe rubber will work best :-)

Here's an interesting setup I have thought about doing , more for the fact I can have an osd on my fpv boat!
Its nice to have a headlock mode and so I can film with the pan servo(360deg) while having the boat stay on a straight course heading and also I have rth setup and will be curious to see if using throttle and rudder will be enough to bring here back home :-)
Only one way to find out !
Has anybody else tried this before ??

Here are a few pics of my recently purchased Freeflight X4 Quad . I can say that this is a very stable camera platform after flying many smaller quadcopters previous to this.(Dualsky hornet460, blade350qx etc..)
I have flown with two Gensace 5800 6s lipos and can easily fly for 25mins with a voltage of 3.70v remaining in each cell.
Truely an amazing design , Im very happy with the quality overall and highly recommend this beast of a quadcopter ;-)
