After looking at the commercial versions I decided and have pinched some ideas from other pubs to create this monster
Wanted to try this at 800 to 1000 meters ..
The transmit part consisting of Transmitter, cheap video camera off trademe battery not to flash but don't need it with this set up,
Tripod, Used Invertor and a second hand plastic drill kit case with the dividers chiselled out of it .
Alli express to purchase the trans/receive gear
Inverter will run off car battery left at transmit end, it will power the transmitter plus the video cam for hours on end
This pic taken during testing stages
Using inverters is good as can test run everything on extension leads before final mounting and wiring
RCD protection in both boxes on 230 volt side should stuff go wrong ..
Final set up.
So take it up to target area
(Out of the line of fire I reckon
) Focus it up. Connect 12 Volt battery and done.
The receive part consisting of Receiver, Car DVD screen, another invertor
This inverter powers DVD Screen and the receiver. Same as other will last days before hurting the ute battery.
So these things are reasonably powerful especially the transmitter.
Do not power up without aerials connected or apparently its an end of the world situation....
Had an old variable speed drive heat sink so I mounted it to that with some good conductive grease between the two.
They were correct its got some energy warms up to around 15 degrees pretty quickly then stabilises
The blurb said 1500 meters in line of sight without obstacles I I R C
Tested today at 100 meters and all crystal clear.. Receive end is powered by ute battery on our home made extension lead which we already had for spot lighting pests.
The whole kit.. Pretty easy to carry round 2 seconds to set up and bingo ..
Sight your rifle at 250 or however as far as this will transmit and see what your true drop off is and tune it to suit...
(That is the aim..excuse the pun ) Combined with our new range should it ever dry out this ll be fun...
Will test it properly in next few weeks and post some working pictures.
Provided a short person who shall not be named doesn't shoot the kit
