Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I hope the economy stays the way it is for a while. My pay is set up to directly benefit from rate increases and the recent changes to logging lowered the current work potential of the industry. That combined with the already increasing need for freight movement has really raised the rates. In addit...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

One of my terminals is near indianapolis. I like to sneak into town to eat at the fogo de chao there. They also have a passenger foot pedalled bar cart that rides around downtown.

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Got most of the details worked out for it to be usable. Had to increase the power to get through the load, i'm hoping i can get it back down with some antenna tweaking. Either way the battery will still last a full 14 hour day with no problems. https://farm2.staticflickr.com/1877/44632142252_ca312cb...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I took everything out of the box and added more waterproofing. The camera and battery wouldn't survive submersion, but the transmitter would. I drilled some strategically placed holes where entering moisture should be a non issue and the cooling problem is gone. i'm planning to set it up empty while...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

Your DIY project may be getting a bit too complex. However, if you had a chunk of conductive metal (silver, copper, aluminum, etc.that was flanged and gasketed through the bulkhead in the side of your plastic box, you could conduct heat out through it better than it can manage in an all-plastic enc...

My wireless oversized load cam is testing today. I'm really unsure how well the transmitter will hold up to the heat of being inside of a junction box in the sun all day. I bought a fan to possibly use but in the interest of battery life i'm going to just see if it burns out first :lol: https://farm...

Re: DYMT: Imi's Legacy

I pulled the trigger on all my components to make a wireless trailer camera. Looking forward to putting it together. I got 70 degree directional antenna hoping to use as little power as possible on the tx. If I can somehow get away with 25mw output I could get two full days out of my batteries.

My youngest brother school now has a drone racing team! I don't do hd videos anymore but I'm still flying and lately people's interest has noticably increased. I'm lucky if I can fly one battery without several people having questions. I hope the hobby keeps growing.

And at least a few of those tabs are pages at stack overflow. :P Yup!

Re: Arlo Pro 2 poor night vision quality?

You may just need more infra red light. Depending on the size of the areas changing cameras may not help.
