  1. Have you got any recommendations to which camera to go for, ive found this one in the uk! http://www.henrys.co.uk/cctv/493l.htm Gareth
  2. Sorry! cant get the link to work http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sharp-1-3-CCD-COLOR-...1QQcmdZViewItem

  4. Hi all, i have found this camera on ebay and would like to know what your thoughts are. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sharp-1-3-CCD-COLOR-...1QQcmdZViewItem Thanks Gareth
  5. This little gadget could be ideal for recording your movies on from your wireless cam. mustek PVR-H140 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/MINT-CONDITION-MP4-P...1QQcmdZViewItem It can record from any AV signal to mpeg4 at 30 fps, 40gb storage.
  6. I have taken my 1.2 GHz system out for another try last weekend and it worked perfectly, I taped the camera outboard on the wing of my cap 232 with the battery inside over the CG, I didn’t fly FPV but got a friend to fly around the local common at about 700 meters away and the views are fantastic, I didn’t even have to retune the receiver and I had no drop outs at all, I think what has made a huge difference is clipping my transmitter aerial down to 62mm to match my transmitting frequency. My system consists of: -Hong Kong 1.2 GHz manual tune, modified with the tuning knob moved to the other side so a patch antenna can be screwed straight on and a power switch. -the Hong Kong transmitter is supposed to be 800mW but I don’t think it is, probably more like 200mW. Aerial cut down to 62 mm - I am still using the crappy CMOS camera with a piece of tape over the inside of the lens to reduce light sensitivity. - The camera and transmitter is powered by a 900 mah 9.6v nmh pack. - My patch antenna is GP Patch scaled up for 1.2 GHz made from brass. - Im viewing the picture through my Olympus eye-treks from ebay (£73) All in all a good first proper test, and shall be moving on to 2.4 GHz system pll, with a CCD camera run from lipo's. Gaz
  7. Ill move on to the PLL system then. where did you get your 10mW transmitter and reciver from? what brand is it? Gareth
  8. It looks like you have had some fantastic results with your system, im having problems with my 1.2 ghz setup, it has a manual tune on the reciever and it seems like im having to fine tune all the time, im gonna order those airwave modules soon and move on to 2.4ghz pll. Gareth
  9. I dont know if anybody has seen this link already but check out the tiny 1.8g video transmitter and the price. http://www.microcameras.com/index.htm its not a uk supplier but worth a look! Gareth
  10. Good work, which modules have you gone for and what camera are you using? Gareth
  11. Hi mate, my next project is going to be using these transmitters and recievers, suplied in the uk. http://www.active-robots.com/products/radi...v-modules.shtml they are cheap but require a small amount of soldering and wiring up, and go for a CCD camera not CMOS. Gareth
  12. Hi, i think im gonna give my current setup a go and see how it performs in the air, my next project will probably use an airwave 612 transmitter and receiver, they are low cost and other people seem to be getting good results. http://www.active-robots.com/products/radi...v-modules.shtml A ccd camera is also going to have to be a must, but not sure what to go for, i was thinking of some thing with 420 tv lines for a good quality video. Gareth
  13. Hi, i spliced open the plastic potted joint where all wires met and could not see anything, but i did not check inside the red power connector plugs, the camera seems to be working as normal at the minute. Are all CMOS cameras 5v? Gareth
