I'm flying an aerial video setup right now based on an Easystar carrying a mini CCD video camera directly cabled to an onboard mini DVR (ie. no wireless involved). The DVR weighs 86g and gives me excellent results with no frame drops or interference, so I'm wondering whether there's any advantage in going wireless...?
On the plus side it opens up the possibility of wearing those natty video goggles and potentially improving shot framing in flight by getting a live picture for monitoring whilst flying, also maybe it saves some onboard weight which leads me on to my question...
The Active Robots site doesn't specify the weight of the Airwaves 612 module and even if it did I guess there's extra bits to add to make a working wireless TX system. So what all up weight might be anticipated..? Unless it's much less than my 86g DVR then maybe I should stick with what I have - or am I missing some other advantages..?
Ps. Big hello to the guru of airborne video, VRflyer. A mention of rc-cam.com on one of his youtube videos first led me here. He's the boss!
