FPV system for drone

Hello !


I'm building a "small" quadcopter (330 mm) and I'm looking for a FPV system. For me the DJI lightbridge was a good solution with a Zenmuse X3 but the system is to closed (work only with DJI flight controller and frame). 


Do you know a system that can satisfy those requirement?


  • Take HD picture and save it
  • Take HD video and save it 
  • Transfer image from the camera to the operator (FPV), if it's possible in HD
  • Range 300m
  • All the material has to be the smallest


A cheap way is to use a xiaomi Yi camera (to record and save picture/video) and transmit the image with an analog transmitter. 


So if you know good system that can help me, please share :)


I wish you a merry christmas ;)

  • Hello David,

    thank's for your answer. It seems very good ! I will read the post.

  • Check out Wifibroadcast or EZ-Wifibroadcast. You will need to spend at least 50 dollars for a RApberry Pi Zero and camera, an RPI 2 or 3,  at least 2 wifi dongles usinf Ralink or Atheros chipsets, and two micro SD cards.  Currentlly latency is 100-120 ms and range is up to you.  It's pretty easy to set up and will send 720P vidoe easily. Working on full 1080p and less latency all the time.
