I really wanted to take high definition photo's and film using my multi rotor ( the H- copter ) so i decided to swap the FPV gear for a digital camera.
I mounted the camera easily ( and no it isnt anti vibration mounted but it seems OK for now , but if you have any ideas for mounts please post ), but set out to make a button press
My solution is very simple (argueably crude) .
The servo arm was dramatically shortened in order to provide a higher torque "push" . i could have used a larger servo but in order to access the power button a smaller (3.7g) servo was used.
The servo is plugged into the gear/ aux plug , which means no self levelling though (kk2 board used). By adjusting the Travel Adj settings it ensures the shortened servo arms presses the correct amount.
I used tie-wraps as it allows for super easy adjustment before final tightening.
The results were very pleasing :)
Kit used -
10cm servo extension wire
Samsung St 66
Micro Sd card 8GB
Total cost around £85 (camera being 70 - nought from Jessops )
or $130 . (mount costing £7 or $11)
