Uh, NO!
I am very afraid to see any video you post, with the subject matter being about your pole !!!

It’s an extension pole. Don’t be a perv.

Your reputation precedes you!

Don’t be afraid. I just watched it. More entertaining than Frank’s. And Linas’s pole is not featured. :cool:

All good. Just recieved an 18’ pole a few days ago and now waiting for the camera platform.

We don’t want to watch you with your 18’ pole. Don’t get hurt.

You did watch Linas’s video didn’t you? :mrgreen:

Hi, did you get the one from InspectorOutlet? I’m looking into this one:


I find them extremely expensive, might just modify a painter’s pole. Any suggestions?


I bought a 30’ pole extension pole at 10ft sections from a local custodial supply house, aluminum and light weight. I think I paid around $130 for it a few years ago…

Waiting for what.Just screw on a tripod and hit video ?

If anyone is interested, I recently made a pole camera as close to the Spectoscope as possible. I think I made it for less than $250 (compared to $700+ for the Spectoscope). Here are the components and links to ebay to purchase:

Good stuff Robert, have you had a chance to try it? Is it around 7’ closed?


That’s about right. It fits in my HHR with the front passenger seat folded down. It works great. I keep the base of the pole on the ground for stability and have the phone mount at about shoulder level to make for easy viewing.

Robert, which camera are you using with this pole?

I bought a new (cheap) Samsung wifi on eBay. It’s not the best camera but it’s dedicated to the pole so it’s working out well.

Very nice but the beginning home inspector in me is wondering how do they secure those poles to the ceiling and flooring with out causing damage? :wink:

How do you link the phone and the camera over the wifi?
