Ladder test with a diy wireless camera

Recommended Posts

I was getting ready to go shoot a ladder test when a guy I work with asked if I wanted to use his wireless camera . I resisted at first because I’ve seen wireless target cameras in the past and they are glitchy and unreliable. 
 

well he show me his home made one and it’s perfect. He’s tested it to a mile with out issues.  I used it at 450 and it worked flawlessly. It streamed hd right to my phone. Here’s a few photos. The target is clean in the photo. I should have takes some screen shots with hits.

No pics of hits means no hits😮.

Just joking. How does this work, do you need cell service with internet?

So you need to be where you can get internet and boost the signal? Sorry my kids do all the new gadget thinking for me.

No. This creates its own network. Zero service required. I was really impressed. I’m gonna have my own made

This is intriguing!!  Will any router work with 12v?  I woulda thought you’d need an inverter?  I usually just use my pioneer to drive over there but I spend more time driving then shooting a lot of time!!

Cool concept.  When you get a list of components, you should post em up.  What distance are you shooting your ladder tests at?
