I would recommend this one
Looks a lot like the one I lost on the AXN. It was a KX 181 HQ, a little pricier perhaps. Liked it a lot.

This is the HK 200mw 900 mhz kit mounted on the LowPrice RC Pan/Tilt using Towerpro 9g servos. I used a 68 ohm resistor on the tx.

Sorry, it's boring video... but at least it's video

Would like a better camera in the Senorita is all.

One of these would be nice to go with the 5.8G gear;

That's small ! Would be nice on a coaxial heli to go around the house for sure. Then again, a tri or quad copter would do the same...around the neiborhood

Carguy... I haven't figured out your flying field as much as I have Art's, I still get a crossed up at times...
Maybe this will help ? Zoom on the arrow. There is no snow though...

Have you added the Go of clips you came back home with since you began FPV ? One flycam and the recorder make for a lot of data in an afternoon of flight ! Must be in the 2 or 3 Go of 720 x 480 clips, maybe more...I'll chech that when I come back from the next flying day.

I think maybe he means how many gigabytes of video data do you take home after a flying session? easily 4-5 GB of raw data for me.

Eureka!(maybe)

Ok..Ya'll know I've been "fighting" the Super Cub rather than "flying" the super cub, Well luck was in my favor Tuesday evening as there was absolutely no wind here!...dead calm!..I thought it was the end of the world! lol.
So after work the Cub and I hustled out to the feild for some alone time, I had all the video equipment removed from the cub - save the deflector/windscreen for the cam mount - I also took along the keychain cam.
I had several flights alternating between 2200 sized lipo's and 1300's, unfortunately the cub fly's more nimble with the 1300's naturally which would cut my FPV's down to 8 min flights tops. Meanwhile I placed the Kcam in a couple of places on the flights, under the tail and under the wing - just looking things over while in flight and getting some good video. Towards the last flight of the Eve on a whim I thought i'd try the Kcam looking forward directly through the prop on top-center of the wing(TX location). Holy #@88t the Cub was a handfull!! she wanted to pitch down hard!...so it looks like Glenstr gets a Kudo's for calling on this one back on post#1563..for what its worth i did move the tx around up there in the past side to side...and even elevating it a bit, I just never totaly removed it from the wing top.
Who'd of thought that a keyfob sized object would create such a snafu!! I'll also chalk it up to flying conditions, looking back(hindsight)the cub did seem to fly better in higher winds with the vid equipment, I guess I needed calm conditions for the issue to exemplify itself.
New plan - Tx under the wing!..I am also still trying to find an aiptek for more portable recording..Could any of You owners of the Aiptek give me a model #?..i know mpvr and mpvr+...but in example-DV5000 or xxx would help...it seems there might be a couple of models that will work, but i guess i am looking for the newest or best version.
