900MHZ 1500mW Tx/Rx & 1/3-inch CCD Camera PAL 420TVL
12 Channel 900Mhz Tx/Rx video system with CCD camera. A powerful 1.5W (1500mW) powered Tx!
Unlike other generic systems, we have produced a wiring loom and included it with the camera so that the Tx and camera will be compatible and on the same voltage. If you buy your camera and Tx seperately the plug polarity and voltages may be very different.
Included. 1 x SONY CCD 1/3inch Camera 1 x 900Mhz 8 channel Video Transmitter (1500mW)
1 x 900Mhz 12 channel Video Receiver
CCD sensor type: 1/3 color SONY CCD Pixel: 500(H)*582(V) (PAL) Scanning system: Interlaced scanning Synchronization System: Internal synchronization Horizontal resolution: 420TV line Minimum Illumination 0.01LUX/F1.2 DSP+CCD: CXD3142R+405AK S/N Ratio: 48dB Gamma Modification: 0.45 White balance: Auto Auto backlight compensation: Auto Lens: 3.6MM Audio: No Input voltage: 9~12.6V Electric current 80MA Electronic Shutter: 1/50 (60) ~ 1/100,000s Video output: 1.0VP-P composite video Operation Temp.: -20~50 Size: 38 x 38mm Flight time: Approx 60min/100mah 3S
Hi I am having some dramas with this setup on a quad. I have tried 900mhz 1500mw and the 800mw version with a low pass filter. Turnigy 9x 2.4g for the radio and the orange open LRS system and I am getting bad interference with either combo. The motors just stop and start. Would it be the case that the 100mw rc tx is getting swamped by the 800mw and needs to be equal in power or greater, so I would need something like the rmilec 433mhz 2500mw or dragon link. I have also tried a 1.2g 800mw system with the 433mhz and it still happens. I'm stumped. Please someone help.
Bonjour, juste pour vous signaler, que sur les camé*ras ,le guide blanc de la fiche vidé*o est monté* à* l'envers sur la platine de la cam. j'ai eu deux fois le mê*me problè*me sur les kits en 900mhz..
No! It has only 4 channels: 0 ch -910Mhz, 1 ch -980Mhz, 2 ch -1.010Ghz, 3 -1.040GHz
Works well. And with stock antennas i flew for 2 km range. Stock antennas not bad, but you can make your own antennas with more db easily. You can do it yourself and get range about 10 km (with directional ant)
hello I'm from new zealand, we use 915MHz GSM here but I thought 900MHz was an ISM band worldwide because it's used for RFID. check with your local spectrum regulation authority, i think 900Mhz is ok but over 915MHz is when you step on GSM's toes.
Wow okay. No wonder. The plug was soldered on backwards and that's why It dist work! Stupid quality control my $ss. It has a QC sticker on the board. they didn't even bother to check the camera... Anyways I pulled out the plastic socket and mounted t the other way around and it worked. But I only got black and white. Is this supposed to be colored? Could the reverse plug in damaged something?
Someone knows a place where we can buy a 200-500mW transmitter alone that is compatible with this RX ?
HK only sells kits, I already have the 1500mW version but I'd like to use a lighter version of the TX in another multicopter. I don't need the large range of the 1.5W version.
Thanks, nice stuff all around *-)
I haven't found what I need, still it is very interresting.
At the end, I removed the case, made a new antenna and replaced the battery with a LC filter.
The original whole thing (TX ant bat wires) was 160gr after the mod it is only 39gr !
That is 1/4 of the original weight.
It is a SMA on the TX side. RX is larger, I don't know the type.
The TX is using 220mA * 12V
The camera is using 115mA * 12V
So efficiency of the TX is about 56%
Camera consumes 50% more than than the advertised 80mA.
Hello there. It can all be a bit confusing, can't it. Never mind. I think you'll find that he was talking about the battery charger. You can charge batteries at different rates. Some batteries can be charged at 10c. But batteries last longer if you charge them slowly. I believe that he was telling you to get a charger that can charge at 100ma. Most of the cheap 4 button chargers will be fine. You can set the charge rate on them. I suggest that you look at rcmodlereviews on youtube. Bruce explains it all very nicely. I hope I've helped. Good luck.
CAN ANY ONE TELL ME WHAT AND WHERE ...MAYBE A STOCK NUMBER ON A BATTERY THAT WILL PROPERLY FIT THE CAMERA, TX/RX? BASICALLY, OTHER THAN THE GOGGLES OR MONITOR, WHAT EXACTLY DO i NEED FOR THIS SYSTEM??????
You will need an extra 3 cell lipo, something like 100mAH. The cables that come with the kit will power the TX and camera. (no need to solder)
Of course, you will need a charger for the battery... for a 100mAH use max 100mA charge current - anything above the "1C" battery capacity is no good. On the ground you need another 12V battery for the RX. There's no cable for that in the box, but it is a very common plug.
You can of course use the power transformer if you have a plug nearby.
Then you need the goggles, motorised camera mount, head tracking, video recorder, moving chair and air blower to get the feeling.
Note that HK doesn't sell 3S batteries that have less than 350mA. The smallest one is this : www.link (which is no problem, if you can handle the extra weight)
You can also build your own using single cells like this one : www.link some careful soldering of 3 cells.
If you plan on adding servos for a pan&tilt mount, you will probably need a bit bigger than 100mA, depending on your servos.
I also use the matching pan&tilt mount here : www.link
i think the 100mah should really be a 1000mah 3cell im sure that is what they ment and 140g is not that much for a big foamy.look on youtube to see what others are using,i plan to get this kit soon for my 42in combat wing .
In theory a 1.5W transmitter at 12V should consume 1500/12=125mA
So a 100mA can power it for a bit less than an hour.
In practice, I measured the consumption and it is about 220mA, 335mA with a camera.
So a 300mAH battery should power it for an hour.
100mAH will be the smallest usable probably, with 20min flight time.
Can anybodt tell me if this tx have a voltteage eqaulizer. Do it have shorter range by 11 V than 12 V. Do I have to buy a ESC that can give 12,6V constant to the tx. Have some messured range by 11 V versus 12 V.
Thanks in advance,
A friend bought this for FPV to assist his Aerial Videography & Photography. His feedback is very good compare to other 2.4GHz frequency. These is no interference on 900MHz version... The best product ever used over other 2.4GHz type.

1 thumbs up!
it arrived defective with no image on any channel, after scouring the internet I was left to take it apart myself. The soldering on the transmitter is appalling and i thought this was tyne problem at first but not the case. i then turned to the camera circuit board and traced the lines back to the connector. it was soldered on in reverse!! the positive was to the VOUT and VOUT was to positive. so if you're having problems please check here!
