It seems that Video Out should be connected to Video In in order to have the image. Otherwise I can't imagine how they implemented external OSD.
Operation Travel stated as 60degree - this is very narrow.
They also didn't specify what camera they used.

Not impressed at all by this, Jason.

I agree 60 degrees seems limited. I wonder if it can be modified, eg they use standard micro servos.


I think it might work ok for a FPV car....

Interesting though, when you look on their website the picture of it in the box is clearly 90 degrees...... hahaha

And I know why. Because standard servo is able to turn mechanically 180 degree, but only 120degree when connected to standard radio with 100% end points.

So, now I assume they say 60 degrees in one direction.

Now if they made it a point to make it really small, then this would be more interesting...

I love the concept, but I also agree 60* rotation is almost impractical on pan. Also I am assuming a cheapie CMOS cam. What breed vTx is it? How easy is it to change channels? What quality is in the servos, coz I'm wondering how much buffeting would be passed through from the servo slop to the camera (which would result in lots of jello effect) when using enclosed CP antenna such as Spironet.
Great concept, but as per usual it would seem another great idea falling well short of what the mainstream requires.
That said though, at under $80 I'd be tempted to try one, but not without at least 180* rotation on pan...

every move of the camera moves your antennas orientation.

Good idea, bad execution.
they should have used servos with more travel. And either skipped the video transmitter or mounted it on the stand, not on the camera.

Your plane will move through orientation changes far more than P & T

My thoughts exactly
If they refine this product with half decent servos, a half decent camera, and a decent vTx mounted say vertically off the base behind the cam and keep the aerodynamic drag to a minimum.... then the next challenge is keeping the price down lol

Id actually skip the fpv tx completely. Most will already have one they prefer to use anyway.
I do wonder what servos their using, Hobbyking has some small 180 degree metal geared ones. That does slightly below 240 degrees if you extend the limits on your tx. Though the servo horns on those are crap, the plastic "cogs" on them will strip long before the gears will be in any danger. Making the metal gears pointless/a waste of weight.

Metal gears wont strip near as easy on a bad landing.
I see no mention of weight on this.

The servo horn on that servo will strip with less force then what it takes to strip the gears on a 5g plastic servo.

Are you saying a metal gear servo will strip more easy than a plastic?
