Iphone Live Video Feed...Knocking Live Video App.


My Name is Scott Magner. My friend, Raul Valerio and I recently used Knocking Live Application on our RC airplane for some awesome live airborne video. I made a video of our test and posted it to Youtube at the following link. I thought you might get a kick out of video. Please check it out.

IPhone RC Live Video...Knocking Live Video.wmv (3 min 5 sec)

We used:
2 Iphone 3GS
Knocking Live Video
RC Airplane "Park Zone Radian"
We first established a voice call, so we could hear the winds aloft and the motor.
We then established a Knocking Live Video connection on the 3G Network
We strapped my IPhone to the RC airplane.
We launched the Airplane and climbed to approx. 1000 feet ASL...above sea level...breathtaking live views from this altitude and perspective.
We conducted the test flights two times, with excellent results.

You can contact me anytime for more information or questions.

very cool and simple to realise. You were able to control in real time the plane from the video picture ? or it have too much delay in the picture transmission to be able to control the plane?

Looks like about 2fps at best and 5-6 seconds of lag.

Enough to fly an Ez at 500 feet up, plenty of time to correct, landings can be a bit tricky though ...
