Hi
Headtrack a camera mounted with servos to a rc-model, doing First Person Flight.

Should be possible similiar the way as headtracking in use with a pc.

In this case only using wiiemote and infrared-leds to track.
Needs interface and a bit software to provide the remote control, which controls the camera servos with data to move the camera servos.

similiar to this:  http://www.uni-stuttgart.de/akamodell/projekte/?cat=6

Hi,

I am a RC flyer too and I think this can be done with the wiimote.
The problem is :
- you need a PC (it's a bit heavy)
- you need some hardware to generate signals to send to the radio
- you need some software to handle everything.

On the other side with a bit of electronic skills you can do it smaller and lighter (without a PC and a wiimote but with spare accelerometers and a microcontroller)
