Oculus rift + quadcopter

Hi everybody. I have this thing I want to do and its to mount two cameras on my quadcopter and send the video stream to my Oculus rift DK2.

Have been looking around on other guys that has done this. I do not have any spec on exactly what to use here but this is the componentes i have so far.

  • Arduino Nano 3.0 Controller
  • OV7670 640x480 300KP 0.3Mega VGA CMOS Camera Module I2C for Arduino x 2
  • 2.4G NRF24L01+ Wireless Transceiver Module + SMA Antenna

About the wireless transceiver I thinking I should get this one instead.

  • SI4432 Wireless Module Wireless Communication Module for Arduino

Am I missing some components let me know.

You can't send video over NRF24L01 . It only supports a 32 byte payload. Almost all quadcopter video is sent using 5.8 Ghz video transmitters sending NTSC composite video. That's what I use. The problem is video channel conficts between usrrs.

Thanks. Do you know any good site to buy it on? EBay? Would be awesome with a link.

Here are some examples of commonly used products. There are many more. You just need to look.


FYI, the cloverleaf antenna works better than the straight folding -rod type .

Both the Oculus rift DK1 and DK2 have a single screen that shows 2 images on it, which is split using 2 lenses. So my guess is that all you would need is 1 camera with 4 small mirrors to split the view into a left and right image. It might be easier to do, plus it should reduce the camera weight. For the lens distortion you could use a program like Deskope.
