Careful!
$17 Hobbyking Camera Buyers BEWARE!!!!

Alright guys,

I have been doing some tests and have found that at least my (and likely other cheap HK cameras) are emitting signals which can seriously effect the performance of your UHF systems!!!

Specifically my dummy load ground tests are halved when the camera is turned on compared to off! NOT GOOD!!

I got this camera because it was cheap with decent picture....but now i regret that i didnt go ahead and buy a more expensive camera.

Just wanted to give you guys a heads up!

-Mark

"cheap camera" and "long distance" cannot be used on the same sentence...

And sometimes the connector is upside-down so you end up plugging 12v on the Video Out pin
