Yes... however with the transmitters I currently use the problem already is more on the camera's side than on the transmitter one. I have yet to find a decent camera under 20x20mm and 15 grams..

They seem nice indeed. They don't state whether they're CMOS or CCD though, but I really doubt they could pack the electronics required for a CCD in that small size. I'll ask.

OK, I inquired about the CM-588 and CM-588/S. $199 and $249 respectively, and they're CMOS.
Pretty expensive, but I haven't found that small before.

Hmm, adding that TX I have to the CM-588, plus a small 2s/30mAh lipo would mean a 6.5gr FPV equipment. I have an idea in mind... ordering one

I hope this URL works. I can't get the image on my network.

In any case, these guys may have a smaller camera.

It does work, thanks. They are the same dimensions (8x8x8mm) as the avove CM-588/S. However, the weight goes "through the roof" at 8.54gr instead of 1.5

My idea can afford the 2.5gr 16mm long version, but not much higher. I couldn't supply the 9-12V either...

I can already give the first step, they're awful to order from. I've sent a very clear and complete request, including what I wanted, my address and shipping. We then exchanged like 5 emails because they only wanted to use a $45 courier service. I finally had to agree and confirmed. A few mins later I receive an email asking for my address and phone!
I repeat that, and later receive a quote with the wrong items...

Finally supposed to be OK, with ~$80 shipping and "bank fees". Meh.

ridiculous customer service. i hope you at least get the right product after all that. given how tiny the CM-588/S is, you can really scale down the pan-tilt; e.g. two hs-35D?

I took the 588, not the 588/S. If you want a pan/tilt you can take the smallest servos you'll find

I won't use one, as my target is so small it wouldn't accomodate it. Plus, I'd need a separate receiver and TX as there's no servo-compatible output...
