Yep, they've got several of them running around also... Heard the only accidents have been when the human panicked and took control. At least that's the story they're sticking with.

About a decade ago, there was a 6-episode Japanese sci-fi anime series about an entire society that never learned how to drive, because they relied solely upon driverless cars. Until the cars started going berserk, and only the world's few remaining licensed drivers, in manually-driven sports cars, could run them to ground and stop them before they caused an accident.

Quite entertaining, in a juvenile way. One episode lasted about as long as it took to wash a load of clothes, and two episodes took about one dryer cycle, so that series occupied my time through a couple of loads of laundry. Though admittedly, the most entertaining thing about the show was my cute Japanese upstairs neighbor, who loaned the series to me to watch.

I do kind of wonder why Hollywood never tried to make a B-movie using the concept; they adapt everything else, from headlines to comic books…

Apologies for still being off-topic. I'll stop now.

Swift Hitch Digital

Swift Hitch is coming out soon with a digital version that will eliminate interference from Bluetooth and such. I understand it will retail for $279, same packaging as their SH02 model. I think it will become the "go to" magnetic mount backup camera.

What I want is a one of those quad copters with a wireless camera to hover to give an arial view while backing

We have so far as newbs done fine backing and hitching the propride without the camera but I think it would be nice and handy to have one

I installed an OEM camera in the tailgate and it makes hooking up very simple. The Swift Hitch will be for the back of the trailer.

I love the backup camera on the truck.
Now I want one on the back of the trailer.

We have a Voyager WAOM562 wireless rear view camera system that came with our 23FB. I have now had the chance to use it for 3,000 miles of towing. The picture on the 6" screen in the tow vehicle is excellent with no distortion. The camera is powered from the Airstream's tag light. I leave my running lights on at all times while underway. Therefore, my camera is always active. It works so so well that no longer need to pull out the mirrors on the Silverado, or mount the tow mirrors on the Suburban.

The only issue that I have with this system is that in the rain, the water drops distort the image on the screen.

I have some warranty work and something like dkottum's recliner upgrade scheduled and I asked them about the voyager. They have in stock and will do the install. Are you talking with Chris Burch there to set up your appointment?

$800 for the wireless Voyager - not cheap.

We use the GoPro Hero 3 at work for aerial videography, mounted on a quadcopter drone. It has a, reported, 600' wifi range and streams live video to a smartphone app. I haven't tried it myself yet, but with wifi there is of course always the potential for a slight lag - I don't know how severe it might be and if it would make the camera unusable for our purposes.

I'll try and install one this spring, probably on the inside of the trailer back window.

That way I can leave it plugged in and, with the wide angle view, still get a good view of what's happening behind.
