Hi LTS49 setting up for fpv on the trex 450 isnt the easiest things to do in the world as the electronics needed are all in such close proximity. In my experience over the last two years of getting my Trex 450 turned into an fpv rig, my biggest challange has been rc range. I started out on 2.4 futaba 7c fasst but it was so unreliable that I changed to a futaba 9c 35mhz. I had real problems with antenna placement so I then went with the Thomas near range rc system with rssi attached I finnally have good rc range and reliable. My new problem now is video noise as since ive put the Thomas nr system onboard my picture has suffered. I am currently working my way through it with some help from Trappy (God) lols.

FPV Trex 450 se v2 (5 min 24 sec)

Fpv ground station tour (0 min 51 sec)

What use you as converter and as lipo?

Buy yourself a BEC and use it as a 5v regulator. Just be aware that the Pinnacle stops recording when there is static.

Liam, what have you done to increase your picture quality? I'm running a TS standard range system too and I've had some funky interactions between that and my 1.2 video. Things like throttle blips while on the ground with my throttle cut ON (not fun, glad I wasn't close to it) and rather poor video with a circularly polarized antenna setup. I do have a filter on my video TX, and it lives out on my tail boom where the supports connect up. My vtx antenna is out on my tail, but it is mounted vertically which makes me wonder if I'm killing the performance there and that maybe I should go to a vee. I'm on a 500 so it is a tad more roomy, but not by much. I did have my vtx up where the gyro is supposed to go but that made the thing very very twitchy because my vbar lives right underneath that.

I'm not running any OSD right now, it just doesn't seem like enough room for all of that stuff. My plan is to do that on a 600 and just use the 500 to learn how to fly off of visual queues only. I am using a wider angled lens which really really enhances the sense of movement, but strangely when near the ground it is difficult to tell sideways movement from a spin.

At any rate please share some of the video cleaning techniques you're having success with!

I had one interaction with the t nr with a spin up but fortunately it hasn't happened since. For clean video I added an Lc-filter from lipo to vtx and my vtx is on crash9's boom support and I have an extention coax cable to the tail support with a halve wave dipole tunned to 1160 to go with my 8dbi patch. Ferrite rings on esc and tail servo and buffer and gps and also camera to vtx cable. It's been hard as there's very little room to get distance between electronics and so it's been a lot of trial an error. I've got my Eagletree osd pro in a black box screwed to the side frame and gps above the vtx on the boom support but because I have the vtx antenna extended to the tail it doesn't seem to be affection sats lock.

Are you sharing your main battery with your video system or do you have a separate vtx lipo?

I used to use two batteries but have just changed to a one battery system with an Lc-filter from lipo to vtx and have amazing quality. Just been for a flight but didn't manage to test my antenna tracking out but with the 8dbi patch and 3dbi omni with diversity, I had zero drop outs even out at roughly a 800 meters. My only problem was I didn't hit record on my dvr lols.

where did you get your foam for your case? and how do you get it cut so neat? I bought some blue foam from a local apolstrey shop and i cut it with an electric knife but not as neat as yours.
