The Bergen R/C Helicopters Observer is a dedicated Camera Ship. Based on our popular Intrepid Gas mechanics, the reliable Zenoah G26 engine, and 800 mm NHP blades, we have added a front mounted pan and tilt system to give you a machine capable of lifting up to an 8 lb useful payload of camera equipment and radio gear.
Putting the camera equipment on the front keeps you from having to utilize a tall landing gear and the inherent problems associated with it. A front mounted camera also allows you a clear 270-degree field of view, and the pan and tilt system is vibration isolated from the mechanics with 4 heavy -duty isolators to give you the clearest pictures possible.
The Observer uses G10 stacked frames and a torque tube drive tail. It also comes with all the standard features from the Intrepid line of helicopters, including a self aligning clutch system with a factory installed clutch liner, a triple bearing block supporting the drive pinion and start shaft, a 10mm fully hardened hollow main shaft, an all aluminum head and blade grips, and an aluminum push-pull control system designed to eliminate any swash plate interaction through the full range of travel. The 16 oz. fuel tank provides a flying time of approximately 25 minutes.
Bergen R/C will build and test fly your Observer for an additional fee. Then all that is left for you is to install your camera equipment, and you are ready to start your own business taking aerial photographs.
