Hey guys, this isn’t really about combat, but I’ve been researching this for a week now and can’t find anything that would meet my needs, and robotic vehicles are the closest thing to accomplishing my goal.
I need a vehicle/device that will climb a vertical Ibeam with a camera system attached (only about 400grams) to about 15-20 feet, be able to park it there so it won’t slide or move, then drive it back down when I’m done. I film hockey games and it’s difficult to find a good vantage point most of the time. BUT, the one thing almost all rinks have in common are metal I-beams for building support. I’ve looked at electric I-beam trolleys, but they all run horizontal and are made to haul tons. I’ve seen 6 wheel vehicles like this HERE, but modifying the center wheels to extend and grip the back side of the I-beam I don’t think is feasible. THIS one might possible if I was able to modify if I knew how. THIS one might work if I could attach another set of spring loaded tracks opposite those to clamp the I-beam
Point is, I don’t have the knowledge of skills to put something like this together, but I discuss a fee to someone that could help me, or even build it. Mine is a startup business, so I don’t have a big budget, and I have no clue what all these little parts cost for an RC vehicle like this. If people see this and want one for themselves, and this takes off, I’m sure I’ll need someone to build these if I get lots of orders for these camera systems.
If this isn’t the place to ask about this, or I’m not supposed to offer paid project help, just delete my post and my apologies. Thanks for reading!
