Data Aquisition/Camera Hardware on the cheap


I need to set up an old Hurricane high- wing trainer with some data aquisition and cameras for a display for uni students. It was modified to fly electric instead of fuel.

I hve been looking at the Eagletech v3 equipment which seems to cover what I am looking for in terms of dat, and need to add on a camera, preferably pan/tilt, along with the required Tx/Rx setup. As the university is run by a bunch of tight-wads, I have to do it as cost effectively as possible. It should ideally be connected to a laptop, and I need the camera and data to download real-time. The equipment has to be purchased in the coming week or two.

My radio is 6-channel 2.4GHz.

If someone can send me the link to a similar project, or is willing to help me plan it, I would be most appreciative.

Thank in advance,

^^^ Thats what I have, basically it comes with the goggles and you get a discount, not a bad deal IMO... All you need is that and a battery for the VTx, you can run the VRx off of dc power, I have an 1800ma batter only reciever, you dont need 1800ma, i just had one laying around.
