Why is th PIC (12C50x) powered via the camera? Why can't the PIC and Camera be powered from the flight pack (4.8v) Is it because of the shutter going low? or it because the amount of ma the PIC must sink?

You could build a voltage regulator to replace the 2-cell battery pack. In some installations your R/C Rx may experience EMI/RFI with the direct connection, so add some LC filtering if needed. Frankly, it is much easier to stick 2-cells in the camera.

The camera will run off the USB port voltage with out battery. Does this mean that there is a voltage

regulator in camera? Is the USB port 5v dc? I would like to use receiver pack to power this project. I can put some filtering in the B+ line. WCP

There is a 5V DC-DC buck switcher on the USB port for use with the HOST PC. You will not be able to use this port for standalone camera operation.
