HUD + video

HUD + stored video

Video overlay HUD for vicacopter (1 min 8 sec)

HUD alone

HUD without overlay (1 min 2 sec)

Products used:
Flash Video: Aiptek pencam
Wireless video: Astak 2.4Ghz system
Telemetry: XBee Pro 2.4Ghz

Well, as expected, there was no XBee signal with the Astak on no matter how far apart they were. More notably, there was no Astak signal with the XBee's on. U won't read that on any other blog.

Managed a test using the XBee and flash video on the Aiptek. The Aiptek records 4.25fps. Telemetry runs at 3Hz. The PIC is too overloaded to send any faster.

Useful data for wireless video fans:

Video channels:
CH 1: 2.434 GHz
CH 2: 2.453 GHz
CH 3: 2.473 GHz
CH 4: 2.481 GHz.

XBee channels:
CH 12: 2.41 Ghz
CH 17: 2.465 Ghz

Your best bet is video on CH 4 and Xbee on CH 12, but our $80 video
transmitter was fixed in the factory.
