I have been wanting to have a eye in the sky on my spot when I am not there. I wanted it in the air vs. on the ground so I could see a broader range. Anyway this was a quick 30 min. get-up using what I had laying around, but it works great.

I made it so that it swivels left to right, and I can easily tilt it up and down to get the right view I want. Been there 4 days, so far so good. The plotwatcher camera already has a 1/4-20 female thread on the bottom, so i just used a 1/4-20 bolt as my "tripod". There could be some improvements (such as a wing nut on the eyebolt end for easy loosening), which I may do later, but I wanted it up ASAP so I could see what this cold front brings around while I am working.

Yeah it works pretty good. My only complaint is the quality of picture/movie. Its like 1.3MP. Watching a food plot with a deer over about 50 yards, its real hard to make out what it is. So it wont replace trail cams right now, but thats not why it was made anyway. For watching to see entry/exit points, daylight hour movement, etc.. its perfect for that. I just dont count on it to show me how big a buck is.

One very positive thing is battery life. been using over 2 months straight, still have 50% battery life on it.

Here is a close range video



and one further away
