wireless target viewing system

Postby farmerboy78 » Sat Jan 30, 2016 11:36 pm

Hey guys, I was at the range today and saw a setup 2 guys put together to view their targets and see the hits ,remotely, in real time... I saw it work out at 500yds and they said it should have at least a 1000yd range... it used a home digital video camera that was linked to a transmitter, and had a monitor linked to the receiver at the shooting position... each end was powered by a 12v power wheel style battery and a lone inverter at the transmitter end to power the camera... I don't think the inverter is necessary if your camera battery is fully charged... here's a hint, the transmitter and receiver are for use in aerial drones! After seeing it in action I just bought some components to put one together for myself! So no more walking down range to see the hits :thumbup: I bought a transmitter and receiver, inverter, 9" portable tv, alligator clips, a/v cable. I have a total of $272 invested without batteries...

I got one of these for Christmas (haven't used it yet):

Mine is the base model good to 300 yards. The long range version is supposed to be good to a mile.

After taking the model numbers off of the parts in mine, we figured the price to build one to be about $150.

I too had put one together out of parts off of EBay. The price was under 2 hundred dollars and the transmitter/receiver had a range of 2500yds. A pair of ammo cans and a pair of small gel batteries house and power simple CCTV equipment and it should be a easy setup cause its "line of sight". Most of the factory built models go 750.00 or more for 1000yd models. Way to much for the average shooter.

Very cool guys. Great work. Let us know how they turn out. I personally love that instant feedback that steel gives. I give them a fresh coat of paint every time I shoot. Depending on mirage a lot of times I can see my shot on the steel. Out to 750 or so.
