A candidate for CJs egg camera one day perhaps...?
Got some gear desicions to make for Skywalker now, the dedicated build thread is v crowded, v big, v confusing (+ they always seem to be shouting at each other...just not cricket). Any advice on receiver, camera, OSD types v welcome + if any used gear available please shout.
This camera is quite a decent one. I've got one and Mudlark bought one as well.
Plus 51 reviewers liked it:-
OSDs: I had a range video (RVOSD gen3). Never tried the autopilot because it looked too complicated (and also relied on IR sensors that don't seem to work very well in cloudy or cold weather). I sold it because it didn't fit on my easy star very well.
I've got 2 Dragon OSD's now. These are great, the autopilot is a doddle to get working and they are much smaller than the RVOSD. Only downside of the DOSD is that it needs a PPM out from your receiver for the autopilot.
VTX if you want to be future proof then your best bet (at the moment) is to get the Immersion 5.8 stuff. I think that 5.8 is the most likely band that will get assigned for proper FPV use. If I right then the ImmersionRC channels are going to be the legal ones. (The current Chinese stuff does not operate on recognised European frequencies).
