I cut the audio out of the composite cable (leaving just the video to the transmitter) I soldered the video signal and ground wires into the transmitter's harness. Now the GoPro records HD video and streams lower quality video back to the laptop. Todays flight is uploading right now but since it is HD its going to take a while... should be done by the morning.
I also used the CNC machine at school to route channels to lay the video and motor cables in so that they are not dangling out in the open anymore. I think it gives the plane a cleaner look. By the way, this is a good example of how NOT to setup a CNC machine.
