Need help adding FPV

Hey everyone
I have this quad X and want to know what the best FPV setup would be considering that it is made to lift from underneath, and would like to put a camera on the front or underside in front of the arms. Is there a way to put 2 camreas, so that one is pointing down, or using one camera only with a tilt? The reason is to check on the load being carried.

Beta testing for amazon delivery ?

You can also use a front facing camera and put it on a tilt driven by a servo. For other FPV equipement, you'll need a video transmitter (vtx) and video receiver (vrx) as well as a display like a monitor or goggles. Check the stickies for more basic info, lots to choose from dpending of what you want to do.

I might use 2 cameras using the switcher but is there an easy way to make the osd do a picture in picture? That would be cool.

2 vtx and 2 cameras that send video at the same time is possible, as long as they are on different frequencies. You will need 2 monitors. More weight on the multi, would use the 2 cams on switcher approach. Lighter, simpler, less crowded multi.
