DuckCam! Inspired by "SpyInThePod'

After watching 'Spy in the pod' I was really eager to try and make my own animal camera!

 I bought this fake duck from a garden centre a while ago to place in my pond. I started by cutting a whole in the front of the duck, and placing a plastic cup in the hole to keep it open. I then thought I could insert my new waterproof GoPro inside. To finish it off, I needed a way of controlling it. So I used my remote control boat!

Cutting the cup to the right size. 

I will be able to use the GoPro wireless remote to control the camera and the RC boat remote to control the direction and speed of the duck. Hopefully, this will help me to capture some more up-close footage.
