..you're thinking about flying "the video"?  Use those batteries in your
1/4 scale Colditz bath tub and wind up a generator spool and feed it
magnetism off your magnetic prop drive flange.  Tap that spool thru a
diode bridge and a 7805, smooth things with a coupla capasitors each
side of the 7805, and hike the 7805's 5.0VDC with a .3V zener diode 
to 5.3VDC.  You want sound too.  ;o)

  Scenarios always come in sets of three:
