Do you want photographs or a short film?

- Short films that can be captured either on a small digital camera look at, RC Off Road Buggy or more commonly a keychain camera. why not visit, Alphie Toy Robot
- Single photographs that require a camera look at, RC Wall Climbing Car with a shutter.

Short films taken from a powered glider or a tethered outdoor why not visit, RC Tank Kit blimp are often smooth and impressive to watch. The RC Aerial Photography equipment i.e. the camera consider, RC Military Vehicles can be turned on before take off and depending on the size of the memory you can easily make a 15-20 minute film from the skies. 8GB keychain cameras look at, RC Buggies for Kids can now be bought for around $20-25.

If you decide on single photographs then things get a little more complex as you have to rig up the apparatus to trigger the shutter on the camera. consider, RC Hexacopter This can be done with a spare servo and a length of wood look at, RC Race Car in most cases though.

Quick moving planes will often produce blurred pictures, simply because the camera also see, RC RTR Boat shutter or the film can't keep up with the speed the plane is moving at.

For this reason it is much more beneficial to use a powered glider, an RC blimp or a helicopter (providing you have mastered the art of hovering). Powered gliders and blimps are perfect for RC Aerial Photography because they both offer a very smooth flight with little or no vibration from motors. The beauty of a powered glider is that the electric try, RC Hobby Shops motor can be shut off while photographs are being taken and then restarted to keep the glider in the air. look at, HPI Racing
