FPV SETUP

MY FPV SETUP

Trying to figure out what components are needed and how they should be connected – 26.8.2013fpv-stuf

Soldering the camera cable to transmitter´s cable – 27.8.2013IMG_20130827_185720

I soldered the small wires with the help of anti-vibration liquid

First test 28.8.2013fpv-2

To test the setup, I used an old transformer 12 V and 1 A.
Goggles are powered from the Futaba transmitter using the data cable from trainer port to goggles. Goggles had 5.8 GHz by default and you can switch between channels by rotating the selector knob. I used the ch1 5705 GHz that was the transmitter´s default setting. Everything started to work otherwise well but there was rippling in all the light areas and almost all the colors were missing. Only black areas were good. I need to investigate next if there is some sort of reset for the camera.

Going to try if this helps

UPDATE 30.8.2013:
Problem solved. The knob on the goggle is in wrong position. Goggle channel 6 should be 5905 MHz but it is 5925 MHz. Now I have the transmitter set to CH7 and goggle set to CH6 and it works great!

Next step is to update the antennas
