Can you ID this TX?

I was hoping somebody would be able to help me identify this transmitter?

It's a 4 channel 2.4Ghz model which I brought many years ago for use in aircraft. Due to work etc it was thrown in a box and forgotten about. I dug it out a few weeks ago and can't for the life of me find any spec's on it.

I'm most interested in finding out how many mW it is so I know whether it's worth messing around with or not. If it's very low power then I may as well invest in a futurehobbies.com tx/rx/cam set and be done with it. Actually they have a great deal on a 200mW system but I'm not sure I would get much range on 200mW? Tempted to shell out for 1000mW but it's a lot more $$$.

Thank you! 50mW, I don't think it's really worth using do you?

50mW will do very well with a good antenna on the receiver. I know alot have used that, and even 10mW, for some good video.

The thing is I still need to buy a receiver. I can get a full 200mW system for $175 so I'm thinking that may be a more cost effective option.

Hmm I don't know what to do now :/

I seem to remember there was a website/forum specially for FPV / onboard video. Can anybody point me over there?

www.rc-cam.com maybe? It's more towards the technical side of things. If you're buying parts though, I'd do it right the first time if you can afford it! lol

That's the one, I'm going to do a bit of research. I would love to invest in a 1000mW system with a diversity receiver but that would be stretching it a bit. I guess if I want to be able to pay out for other things like goggles and gps modules then I'll have to scrimp on the log range video for now.
