Parkzone Ultra Micro FPV - 5.8ghz 200mw FPVhobby TX - 40g without lipo's :D
Always wanted to FPV these little suckers but the only tiny TX's were the 2.4ghz units I had were from intelligent flight... no good for the 2.4ghz spek bricks in these planes
So forked out some cash for the FPVhobby.com 100mw 5.8ghz TX
Also grabed the 1 gram nano camera.
Spent some time trying to get the TX and Cam filtered so I could stick with the 1 Lipo but I gave up after a short while and went the 2 lipo route...
Anyway heres the test vid and the maiden flight, the recorder stuffed up (worst timing as usual) so I couldnt grab the onboard video, but I salvaged some stills which were still viewable.
Will try again tomorrow and see if I can go "under the bar"
TX/RX test @ home
Maiden flight & full FPV flight @ the park
Some fun at indoor
Rudder chopped off mid flight
Found a good spot for the camera, just need more practice now!
Last of the Trojan vids for now, system getting disassembled and put into something else

This is the stuff I NEED.
My 2.4Ghz rig suffers too much with interference from my mates with their 2.4Ghz RC gear.
Was thinking of splurging on the new 5.8Ghz fatsharks coz I want better goggles anyway. What do you recon ?
That would make a very convenient , close range FPV outfit for hacking around the park.
BTW what are you using for RC with that trojan ? I guess you've got a spektrum module in the back of your 9C but didn't see the antenna.

Bloody raining all day today - well not true but not good for the lil trojans 1st proper FPV...
Indoor happening in a couple hours but I think the video will be crap - we'll see!
Cncoz - Fatshark uses these channels -
CH1: 5740Mhz, CH2: 5760Mhz,
CH3: 5780Mhz, CH4: 5800Mhz
CH5: 5820Mhz, CH6: 5840Mhz
Chinese stuff uses -
Ch1:5705mhz , Ch2:5685mhz
Ch3:5665mhz , Ch4:5645mhz
Ch5:5885mhz , Ch6:5905mhz
Ch7:5925mhz , Ch8:5945mhz
I have a awesome yellowjacket diversity 5.8ghz RX but the channels were way off
I got the RX modules from FPVhobby, 2 of them... hang on ill take some pictures.
Got heaps of Chinese takeaway box's (perfect! hehe) so I just build stuff into them.
Only got video - no audio, 2 RX's and then everything plugged into the oracle.
Kev.au - Camera rocks! but the FOV is little too narrow for my liking, works great tho, so tiny!

This modules are Sky-RF modules.
SKY-RF Homepage translated to English
Check their page for more information.
Normally the modules need some capacitors to work correctly.
I have not found the 100mW on their homepage, maybe its a new one.
Which length does the TX antenna has?
cool project by the way.

Yes, a bit of a @#$%^-off .....this rain. I've got some gear I want to test too.
Thanks for them frequencies, I would have checked it all before buying but you've just saved me a shipload of work.
That rig of yours is a work of art !
I'm still keen on the 5.8mhz fatsharks, just for the convenience of setup, getting a bit tired of carrying a big patch, RX, batteries, leads, goggles, more leads, friggin' jumper over the head, now where's that lead....damn, left it at home !!!
Anyhoo, I'll find out how heavy the fatshark 5.8Ghz TX's are, It's just for parkfliers so it doesn't need to be sub-gram.
We should get together for a fly or a beer or both if it EVER STOPS RAINING !

Im up for that!
Tell me about it, been up at the crack of dawn both sat and sun... waste of time... hehe
I was going to install one of the RX's into my 2.4ghz fatsharks... but lost interest..
Got some footage from indoor last night, cralis and firepower were there to egg me on, ill cut it up today sometime and post it in here

Heres the video from indoor last night... was sooo much fun
|Oct 03, 2010, 04:38 AM|
Those 5.8ghz transmitters seem to work well, once I get a chance ill take it outside and do a range test... hmm, I think it will lock out before the video drops tho!
