New PCB Moxon antennas, small FPV HAT video

Hi all

For those of you that use the US 915 Mhz ISM band or the EU 868 Mhz ISM band for video, telemetry etc. we have two new antenna offerings:

868 Mhz and 915 Mhz PCB Moxon-style antennas.

Why a PCB Moxon? Well, this layout is easy to manufacture using PCB production machinery. And with an semi-automated process comes repeatability and quality stability, even at a low price point.

Check them out here for full specs:

For our FPV HAT for the Raspberry Pi we've added a small video to the Tindie listing which illustrates usage:

(scroll down to bottom of page to find video)

This video shows how mplayer on a PC running ubuntu linux is used to display 640x480@30fps error-free video sent over a 433 Mhz RF link between 2 FPV HATs located in different rooms in an apartment. Transmit power is set at approx. 8 miliwatt.

Can you also make a video where you move the camera around ? :)

@Tommy: We'll try and do that in the coming time. I am guessing that you're interested in latency/image-clipping(?)
