My favorites! I also noticed the "New" wing design he has on the artifical Bald Eagle...I like them better. I wish he'd come to city, I would love to see his birds up close....

From time to time Mr. Musters may remove his videos for personal reasons.

Here's one abbreviated one. I have all his videos.

Thanks for the clip Mr Musters. Did you upgrade your Goshawks' motor? It's the fastest I've ever seen your Ghawk flap..impressive!

May we see some pictures also of your Bald eagle up grades."? The wings look very nice this time around.
Cheers!

I wonder if it is possible to equip those birds with FPV equipment, to have a better control of it chasing birds or spying ...and this camera will be built into the eyes of the bird ... maybe two for stereo vision (an added depth dimension for even more convenient flying)

but of course some type of special vibration dampening system must be used to eliminate the vertical shaking from the video transmitted ...

hmmm,.. maybe a fast digital brushless servo and a very sensitive height(z) sensor can be used to compensate for the unwanted vertical shaking produced by flapping ...

Wow ... just imagine yourself looking behind the eyes of an eagle .. soaring at massive heights ... what a wonderful feeling ....

Me too Khaled! I already work on that to get it fixed. Not easy so if you have any suggestions to get a camera stabilisized, you are welcome! Fixed wing models are no problem:

Hi Mr Robert

This is what I mean .. but at a much faster rate (frequency) this is why a digital high speed bushless servo is needed and of course some sort of gyro or some vertical frequency sensing micro device , that keeps sending correction signals to the servo to compensate for the unwanted shaking

Please see the last part of the video where the owner shows a demo of the stabilized camera mount
Mikrokopter Quad-X with Interchangeable Camera Mount & Video Transmission System.wmv (5 min 31 sec)


The question is can this be down at much higher rate (flapping rate ) ???!!
