Why is it that great minds think alike ???

I have just bought this on eBay, very James Bond,
but I had this silly idea that the camera being so small, it could be concealed inside a G-scale Motorman.

Powered by battery, but would not be a prob to power it via a DC to DC converter.

It's wireless or micro-SD card.

I also bought this one at AU$4.95, too cheap to miss and it has remote control !!

You are right, great minds do think alike.

The IP camera should work very well.

Keep us informed on how well it works, might try one myself.

If you use the converter, a few capacitors across the output will help to smooth out the power on points and dirty track.

The converter I used is a cheap ($8.00) one that works really well and is very adjustable for output Voltages from 5 to 32 Volts.

Good luck with the project :2t:

.......cheers Peter

I actually have a bank of super-capacitors onboard each tram, to act as a fast battery for the RC.

These little converters at 5 for AU$1 should do the job.

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/New-Mini-5pcs-LM2596s-3A-DC-to-DC-Buck-Converter-Adjustable-Step-Down-Module-GA-/171910280596?hash=item2806a6b594:g:kZkAAOSwstxVeRnr

The camera head on those is 5mm Sq. and the video specs. seem reasonable for something that size.

They look good on the specs. and a good price.

They would be a lot easier to fit (too late now).

Thanks for the info Trevor.

......cheers Peter

All done, able to fit everything back in.

I fitted a switch to turn off the camera for when not in use.

You can see the camera lens at the rear door window.

.......cheers Peter
