Here's how I got started...an Easystar RTF with an enlarged rudder, 2100 mAH NiMH battery pack made of 6 Energizer Batteries...
I hung the video pod using velcro and ruber bands on the right wing. I think it's a 10mW Tx. It was good enough to fly around a park. I'd start to get fuzz as I got out of range...good warning to look up, find the plane and turn back.
Eventually, I split the camera from the Tx and installed it on a panning servo...My radio setup was Ch1-Rudder, Ch2-Elevator, Ch3-Throttle, & Ch4-Pan.
I eventually added ailerons. I used Ch-6 (usually the flap pot) to pan.
Here you can see the Tx. Mounted it here to fix Cg. I don't think the 10mW's ever bothered the Rx.
Here's the "GEEK BOX"...This set up gets me nearly the same FOV as gogles and allows me to "look-up" to see my plane. Awesome when you're still learning.
