Wireless 5" monitor

Post by Torchwood » 28 Feb 2015, 18:31

This is the most compact unit I managed to cobble up.
5" screen, 12v elwircraft battery and video reciever. Cost almost £45 to build it. Will work with broom and mini spotter.

Not for sale. :D looks romantic with the red led. :)

Will open it up and take some pics for you. Not hard at all but jut a bit of tinkering to fit it al in. Box was too small for batteries, it goes inside the monitor by 2mm or so. Nice and compact.

Yes g. It's a good gadget for broom, specially if shooting with friends. They can see what your are shooting. ;)

This was a practice run :D starting the 7" monitor for the roof mount. will leave plenty room for a recorder too.

Thanks John, boxes from maplins. Easy to walk in and buy one. I can never find them online, will look for it.

Box was a bit too shallow for the three cell stacked up. Had the back of monitor taken out, than its flush with the rest.
The back part is handy too for mounting it inside the cab.
