Jordi and I use the Sony Webbie, which is like a HD Flip camera with AV out. It's light and the lens rotates for easy positioning. It's as easy to use as the FlyCamOne2 but the quality is 1000% better.
Thanks for the suggestion chris...i will keep it in mind. i was looking more towards a rotating (360 degrees) video camera (dome style) that is capable of giving a live feed to video goggles... to be more specific. do u have any suggestions????
Do you remote trigger the Sony Webbie for still pics? Can you transmit the "feed" from this camera for OSD purposes? Ideally I would like to use one camera to take stills and transmit what it sees for a OSD. I had a Panasonic Lumix that I could do this with but I had to use a servo for the trigger. Also, the camera was a bit heavy. It had great optics though. Sadly it hit the ground at around 40mph straight in. 2.4Ghz RC plus 2.4Ghz video transmission seems to be a bad thing.
Just got the webbie myself after reading that you can use the video out and record simultaneously. there are posts on rc universe if you search. This website (expensive) sells the webbie with the option of a prewired video out cable and transmitter combo:
Is there any kind of stabilization with the webbie - as you know I use the flip HD and try to stabilize in a video editing program. It would be great if the camera was doing some of the work to smooth things out.
Two options: 900 MHz video transmitter or a 5.8 GHz video transmitter.
There are some 1.2 GHz video transmitters around also.
The 900 MHz video transmitter will interfer with the 900 MHz Xbees if you are using them for telemetry. However you can buy a remzibi OSD and put some of the more vital operating parameters in the video display.
The 5.8 GHz video transmitters start to get expensive if you need one that is greater than 100 mw.
& not to forget 1.3Ghz video transmitters.
@eye-in-the-sky, you can't unless planning to do some exotic fabrication, isolation & painful techniques etc, easy way is to use different freq/bands of transmitters for each of the functions( RC, video , Data telemetry). Keep in mind that some transmitter on board are known to saturate the GPS , so GPS has to be isolated too.
@ every/any one , I am looking at this 1.3ghz video tx, does it have any impact on the GPS on board??? what about 1.2Ghz?? Can't use 2.4( my RC control), or 900Mhz( telemetry modem)..thanks
