  • GoPro video camera

    I am considering the purchase of a GoPro or other small video camera to mount on the robot for the purpose of recording video during matches.

    I want to make sure that this would not violate any rules. The camera is powered by its own internal battery. I see that other teams have mounted GoPro cameras to their bot, so I suspect this is not an issue.

    Certain newer camera models have remote controls that can be used to wirelessly view the picture and start and stop the recording. Would this be a rules violation?

    I found this from 2010, which states that a GoPro would be acceptable, but does not comment on wireless control of the camera. Newer GoPro models come with this feature and I want to confirm before I purchase anything.
