A converted RC Tank, I call it the Multi-Terrain Camera:

The Multi Terrain Camera, this is specifically for those areas to small for an investigator to get to like under a house or trailer. This little baby can turn 360 on the spot and has a separate revolving turret with Camera attached that can rotate 270 degrees.

Heres a video of the MTC in action:

From the first run of the camera I could see some things that needed looking at or improving SO over the past few days (as something of a distraction) I decided to conduct a few upgrades.

IR Extender/Strobe/Beacon - From the first run I found that I required better and clearer illumination in pitch black conditions. In addition to the IR Extender the light has a setting that turns it into a strobe and has a number of different flashing light patterns.

Camera on/off switch - Originally the camera powered on as soon as a battery was connected, on that basis I was loosing valuable battery power while the MTC was not in use or waiting.

Flexible Antenna - The original upgrade was a large 3 ft antenna which if Im wanting to use the MTC in a crawl space I'd have limited head room therefor I needed something that would cope with limited space.

3V Power Boost (Camera) - This is another camera quality upgrade. Now the camera has the option to run 9V, 10.5V or 12V giving better quality image and a further distance of video feed.

Spring Suspension - Under the camera lens housing is a spring, used to reduce wobble/vibration of the image while the camera is in motion

Im sure there will be additional upgrades the more we use the MTC but for now heres the latest news.
