200 mW TX on a 120mAh Lipo runs about 30 mins. Total weight with Lipoly 6.2 Grams, only 3.6 Grams with a 5V regulator so it runs of the main battery. The image is not great on a single Lipo cell. I will try it connected to a spare port on the RX see what the signal is like.

Generate video and OSD with Arduino

This setup could be used with Arduino and this Video overlay shield

And this very small light Arduino its possible  to create a OSD and FPV system under 10 grams

Femtoduino, Smallest Arduino compatible board 

Could reduce the size and weight of my MK1 Arduino / Xbee remote significantly

Simple Arduino Xbee Remote Control TX RX

With this camera you need to block out the light from the back of this camera of the PCB tracks show in the video feed. It needs a light enclosure for the whole assembly, nice and thin so it won't drag too much on top of a wing of where ever.The wires on the camera are a little fragile so I potted them in hot glue so they don't fatigue.

What is the range? 

Comment by Nick Goodey on February 25, 2013 at 12:45pm

Seems Ok at 100 meters I would estimate (not measured) in an open space its 200mW so quite  powerfull and Xbee is up to 100mW

Dear Nick Goodey.. Hope you are still around. I am Dom. New to forums & drones. I am, sadly, not a micro electronics person. Recently I got a parrot mambo. I hugely want to make a tiny wifi fpv camera setup for it. I think from your pictures that you could assist. Sadly I do not understand the terms used or the concepts explored. I really need to have a chat with you, to understand a bit, to discuss if what I intend is possible & basically to get a complete shopping list from you of what I need. Apologies for asking for this but I get the feeling that this is right at the bottom of your ability spectrum & so no bother. If you cannot assist could you please put me in touch with someone who could? I am bursting with design ideas & desperate to tinker & create. Please help.

Hi, I'm a newbie here. May I know the connection of the fpv transmitter and receiver module?
