Robinson’s Cockpit Video Camera, introduced at Heli Expo 2020, is now available as an option on R22/R44 helicopters and standard on R66 helicopters.
Mounted on the ceiling for minimal vibration and optimal field of view, the 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) video camera records video, intercom audio, radio communications, and GPS position to a removable 128 GB USB flash drive, according to company officials.
Recording starts automatically when the helicopter is turned on and stops when it is turned off.
Recording video and/or audio to the flash drive can be independently controlled with separate switches. The flash drive, supplied with each camera, stores approximately 10 hours of video. When the drive is full, the newest video automatically overwrites the oldest video, company officials said.
Recordings can be used as a training tool, maintenance aid, or aerial-tour souvenir to share with family and friends.
