    Best freq for a Quad downlink?
    Hello guys,

    I am searching for some info on which downlink frequency to use on my quad, since its not a big area, things get very close to each other, right now I am using a futaba 2,4GHz to control the quad, and I was thinking on 1,2GHz or 900MHz to the video stream, I heard that the 1,2Ghz create harmonics on 2,4GHz, but the lawmate 1,2GHz 500mW has a channel one set to 1080 (btw, I am not in the USA, so I can use any of the channels).

    Thanks in Advance,

    Tony

    DX-201 DPS Camera - what is the battery for the OSD remote?
    Hi Guys,

    I just got my new dx-201 camera from RV, the image is great, the case is heavy, and I think we have a bit of a lack of documentation.

    first of all, changing the original case to the metal case, its a bit scary, you have to expose the CCD sensor... and its a 150 bucks camera....

    then you have to figure out the power source polarity on your own, nothing on the manual.

    and now I was thinking about setting up the camera, but, guess what? It came without the control battery, I am not sure on which one to use on it,
    because its not on the documentation either.

    The mount for it looks like a watch battery, but a little bigger....

    does anyone know which is the battery model that goes inside the little remote?




    So far I can say that its the best quality image I ever seen on these size cameras....
    just need a little more documentation to be done, a lighter case, and the connectors on it are huge and heavy, not ready to FPV.

    If you know which is the battery for it, pls let me know...

    Thanks,

    Tony

    Guys, I have ordered an AWM612tx and a AWM623rx a long long time ago, and only now I had time to assemble them together....

    I have modified a version made by JBVM Delemarre(passed away on 22 December 2005):

    http://www.delemarre.ciscon.nl/id49.htm

    I have the PCBs for it, if anyone is interested, here is attached a picture, but I can send the real files so you can print it....

    I also have the pictures of them assembled, I will send it later...

    Best Regards,

    Tony

    INNOVATEK V-490 i Glasses
    I've seen some cheap 2D HMDs for sale at: http://www.mp3playerstore.com/
    They go for $180 (innovatek v190) and $250 (innovatek v490). You can see the specs at the website. I was wondering if anyone has purchased these glasses and if they are any good. For the specs on the site, they sound decent enough to watch a movie or play a game (optional PS2 connector). If anyone has used these or seen a review, please post.

    Thanks in advance,

    Tony

    Miles or Km.....

    Should I fly near??? High??


    Thanks again,

    LIPO + TX + CAM
    Hey guys,

    I'm getting my Airwave system together, and I'm worried about the Lipo Cells, I
    wanna use a 2s1p 800mA pack for the TX and Cam. But we should have some kind of voltage watch, so we can't mess up the batteries right??

    for how long would my battery hold a Airwave 612 RF Transmitter + a cam working??

    Thanks,

    Tony
