I got this via email from the guys over at Teradek. I had the chance to test out the Teradek Cube while reporting for The Guardian at CES. We used it for a live feed from the showroom floor. It was a harrowing experience to say the least. This video shows off the F-Stop Aerial Media helicopter more than the wireless transmitter. The delay is still a bit of an issue but the wow factor is still there. Transmitting to an iPhone or iPad will be the next step in wireless technology. I am just trying to figure out why Rob the helicopter pilot is wearing flip flops.
The on board camera is a Canon 7D with a Tokina 11-16mm Zoom Lens. The killer helicopter is a T-Rex 700E with a Photoship One pan and tilt head. According to Rod Clark from Teradek. This is a highly modified version built by F-Stop Aerial Media.

Duclos 11-16mm T2.8 Zoom Lens.
Duclos Lenses in Los Angeles, CA. has been re-tooling the Tokina 11-16mm Zoom with a cinema housing for a while now. They add a manual iris, and gears to the zoom, focus and newly installed iris ring. They also install a PL mount for RED users. This can be had for a pricey $4k, however if you simply want a Canon EOS Mount and Focus gear it will only set you back $750.
