These remote cameras are mostly used on model airplanes, but will work in front of your target so you do not have to drive out after each shot. All you need is a small TV or laptop plus one of these.

They cost from about $50 to a little over $100.

jospeh,

that looks like a pretty neat setup

how did you figure 2 miles?

i don't see antennas or rx sensitivity to calculate a link budget

thanks!

Read the reviews and I think they come with an antenna.

This is a quote from one of the reviewers:

"It found out it is better to stick to the stock antenna which came with the unit as it was tunned to the right transmitting frequency."

Re: Here is a camera to put on target at 2 miles.

I have one of the Gopro HD cameras and love it. The quality is great. I use it for dirt bike riding and racing and have had great results. The problem with using it for a hunt is it has a wide angle lens and does not show much at long range but is great up close. Even at bow range the target would be hard to see.


Here is a sample of the quality of the camera.
