Althoug this video is FAKE, some good can still come from it. Like the idea for actually doing this. Its a great Idea for an instructable but a terrible and cheap attempt at fooling anyone.
lol
IT IS A FAKE

I have a mini heli from Brookstone and it has infrared transmitters on it but i took it apart and it has an antenna inside and the infrared transmitters were on a circuit board that wasn't connected to anything

i have a camera like this, but it have a 9v battery to run.
impossible for my picooz to lift it. How you did it ? do you have a exact link to your camera ?

WARNING
MY GUESS IS THAT THE VIDEO IS A BIG FAKE.
THE PICOOZ USE A INFRA RED RC COPTER CONTROLLER.!
THE USED CONTROLLER IN THE VIDEO IS THE RADIO CONTROLLER OF A RC PLANE!
also, these camera usually NEED a 9v battery.

Please, could you post more information about your instructable ?
thanks.
ps: a picooz can hardly lift a piece of paper, how do your lift a camera, a battery, some tape, and a bill ?

If I'm not wrong, the heli you are showing in the video is a Silverlit PicooZ. It's weight is less than 10gr... and the remote control use Infra-red to control the heli.

Your video is showing a radio remote control. Why ?

I'm charging my own picooZ heli, just to prove myself I'm wring and that this small 10g heli can carry somehing heavy from it's nose. But I'm pretty sure it can't.
Here is the wikipage for the picooZ : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picoo_Z
It shows the heli beeing recharged directly from the 2-channel IR controller...

Can you give a link as to where you got the camera? or more importantly, where/how you mounted the battery? The cameras get pretty small, but a 9V battery aint exactly small...

Here's another link to a camera like the one i used, http://www.bizrate.com/robotic_radiocontroltoys/oid609899503.html

the camera i used uses a button cell battery like wrist watches use, my spelling might be a bit off, im sorry about that im not a native :)
Oh ok, whoops, sorry, read the other post, but thought the link went somewhere else.

So that's the exact camera you used? but how'd you power it, if you go here:
http://www.raidentech.com/mimiwipispyc.html
(the actual product page)

It shows that one of the power attachments is the 9V battery clip, did you just take that and wire a buttoncell to it? a buttoncell can't power that, can it?

i live in romania and i got a black & white camera really cheap for 20$ used but , the closest i found online was color and costs like 39$ or so, here's a link if anyone need's it, i recomend buy a "used camera b&w" color is really expensive and it dosen't really matter that much....

definitely a nifty idea. Not original - but great use of the cheaper tech. I've always thought those cheapie helicopters couldn't lift much more weight than their own... cool.
wow, that is just amazing! where did you get the little camera? and funny part where you swooped and got the $100 dollar bill haha
