Question
FPV Hobby's 5.8gHz 10mw Wireless camera 8 channels - BUILT IN MICROPHONE

Hi fellas. Has anybody purchased this camera and Tx all in one. If so what are your thoughts on it. In its description it doesn't say what channels the Tx transmits etc. The description is pretty sketchy. Any thoughts or reviews on it. Thanks.

Thought I'd give it a bump. I have just purchased one of these from Foxtech.

Has anybody bought one of these from Foxtech and modded it to run off a 1s lipo. I know that there is a chip in the plug to regulate the voltage. I would like to cut the plug off and run it off a single lipo. Have any of you fellas done this. If so can you give me some pointers with the wiring.

Figured it out. Thanks to a photo from FPVhobby. Blow the photo up a bit and you can see where the wiring goes.Thought I had fried it. The original I had. Works fine.

Hi Rick. Mate the weather has been blowy here but was able today to give it a whirl today. I have it mounted on a Quad Beetle from Bang Good. I flew the length of a soccer field and diagnally across 2 soccer fields and still had picture. I was using my 5.8 goggles with a Skewer Planer Antenna on my goggles and the short wire antenna that comes with the camera. I'm gonna give sticking a Clover on it to see what difference it makes if any. The camera is now mounted on top with a 1s 240mah Batt for power.

Im happy i found this thread, ive had this camera for about 2 years now and ive just started using it! The range is pretty good, ive flown about as far as a football feild with out any issues i use a 100-130mah lipos with mine.

The one thing i would like to try is a diffrent lens. Has anyone tried removing the stock lens and tried using a wide angle lens. Ive been thinking about getting the 110angle lens from Fpvhobby.
Heres the link: http://fpvhobby.com/138-wide-angle-l...no-camera.html

Do you guys think it will work?
