I was surprised that there is no specific category for the subject of FPV, so I am using Aerial Photography instead. I am interested in aerial video recording, but need to have a FPV as well. I hoped there would be a camera that could do both, something that could record and output real time video that could be transmitted at the same time. The other option is two cameras. I would like to hear comments on that, but my real question is I was hoping to get some comments on a good light weight transmitter/receiver/cables bundle. I am leaning towards the 5.8GHz frequency since it seems to be the most open. Why 5.8GHz? Here are some of the thoughts on why to use this:
-The distance for my application would be 2km or less, so I believe that should just fall within the 5.8GHz limits.
-can be used in Europe and the US
-5.8GHz has a lower noise floor
-more channels than lower frequencies
-antennas are much smaller and lower weight, this will help flight time for my quad copter
From what I read, circular polarization is a must for the antennas, but which ones? Does anyone have any insight? Is there anything else I should consider or maybe something I misspoke about above? I am open on price and definitely would be willing to spend more money if there is a better bundle of components.
Also, if anyone does know of a good camera they use for FPV and video recording that would be great too!!!
