FPV backpack first run

Ok the picture quality ain't great here, but this is a first attempt. I'll add filtering capacitors to the V reg output, try running the Rx at 5V as it states, at the moment the Rx is on 3.3V because I cheated and basically cut the camera cable in half, added the camera to the Tx and the Rx to the power and AV cable for the camera.

The camera needs no more than 3.3V, that's why I built a regulator into the Hubsan X4 connector just like the original cable, does anyone know the real name of this connector and where I can also buy the battery side?

I'm gonna look into building DIY cloverleaf antenna for both Tx bad Rx, after all this "backpack" is meant to be swapped between cars, helis and planes.

FPV backpack first run (11 min 15 sec)


It's a bit long and could get boring, I did roll it a couple of times but it's still fun, almost scary at full throttle, I wish there was some way to have dual rates, I may add a couple of fixed resistors in series with the Pot so that full turn becomes only half as far as the car knows.

Nice, how much is all that FPV gear together? I'm interested in getting one if it doesn't break the bank.

(Lipo, Lipo connector 5V power adapter/USB cable not counted)

Less than one hour to solder

I was getting some interference indoors (through walls and floors) so maybe get 400mW Tx, if your mounting to a car weight is not so critical, but this "backpack", once finished, will be swapped on/off planes, quadcopters and heli. So I needed light weight.

Something a little different for color on my Micro DT. Actually, my daugther chose it for her Mini DT so I did my micro in the same color.

After some sporty sprinting action.
This vehicle is an excellent fast off-roader.
