Help!
Fatshark attitude sd and 600 TVL Super HAD

Hello FPV guys

I am new to this part of the rc-hobby and I am in need for some help

I have bought the 600 TVL SUPER HAD Camera and a pair of Fatshark attitude sd. The question is: which cable do I need to connect the Camera to the Fatshark TX??????

Any help appreciated

I think the reason that nobody answered you is that your question shows you didn't do any research. If you did, you would have read many times that the yellow wire form the camera goes to the tx.

250mW 7ch 5G8 TX*
Filtered balance lead adapter

Found the answer. The plug on the cable is called molex 5p.

that cable may fit but I use servo type connectors to connect it all...
to prevent making a "custom" cable all the time.
-camera(servo connector like on a servo)(made from servo extension cable)
-vTx(servo connector like on a servo)(made from servo extension cable)
-battery(mate to servo connector)(made from servo extension cable)2 wires only

-then i use a Y servo harness to connect it all together...
the video comes down the signal wire of servo cable from camera to vTx.

-later if you get an OSD, vTx and camera will plug right into OSD.

This guy is dead right.

samjet, I know i shouldn't enable or reward your lack of reseach on the subject, but I'll make this easy for you.


The fatshark cable can be bought here:

http://www.readymaderc.com/store/ind...roducts_id=694

Cut the end off that doesn't fit into your TX. You'll now have a cable that connects to your TX, and has three bare wire ends.

The three ends are ground, 5V, and video. Solder ground and video, to ground and video on your camera(usually found in the camera's manual). Tape off the 5V wire end, you won't be using it(your camera is 12V).

Your camera is 12V, so you need to splice your camera's postive and ground power wires, into your TX's positive and ground power wires. As long as you are using 3S, this will feed the camera 12V, which it needs to operate. Now power up the TX and goggles, to see if you did it right.

In a nutshell, Camera video and ground need to connect to transmitter video and ground. And Camera power and ground need to connect to transmitter power and ground.

Thank you very much.

Well I made the wrong question from the start. I was interrested to know if the plug for the tx was included or not. I bought the cable you refered to allthough the right cable did come with the goggles.
