Basic requirement for FPV Start up
Posted 31 July 2009 - 12:22 AM
I already fly RC and have a Futaba 6 EXA and JR 8 channels radios .
I do not want head tracking ,OSD etc to start with .
All I want to do is fly FPV to Start with and then add on after I get to be good at it .
I am thinking of a Fatshark RCV922 Aviator Edition combo with a 10mW receiver .
I am also getting a 500mW receiver additional to plug in later to enhance range .
Do you guys think this is OK or is anything additional to be added .

I have a a JR 8103 Tx on 72 mhz.
Can I connect the pan and tilt to one of the additional channels like channel 6,7 OR 8 of my receiver and operate them with varying degree eg like using the flap channel.
I plan to use my Multiplex Twin Star for my first FPV flight.

The JR 8103 is an awesome transmitter. But, I don't think it will work with your head tracker. Its trainer mode (which is used for head tracking) only mixes CH1 - CH4, whereas you'll want the higher channels for pan and tilt. If that is what you want to do, then I think you'll need a different Tx.

The servos came fitted with the fat shark camera so I assume it has 180deg movement , will check it out though.
Thanks a lot for the help.
