12 Channel 900Mhz Tx/Rx video system with CCD camera.
A high-power tx system for long range, clear video.
*This version features 520-line PAL
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 (800mW)
1 x 900Mhz 12 channel Video Receiver

Hello!i have two quastions... First i wont to know if with this system can fly my model at max 1.8km.
Second what is the resoloution of this camera. Is like 720p on youtube or too lower and how much?
I am new on fpv and i wont to know some informetion.
Well, i receive this FPV and what i found: Weight of SonyCamera = 14.6g but Field-of-view is about 30-40 degrees - too low for fly!. Weight of 8-ch FPV Tx = 80g! It's really higher then describe on this page! HobbyKing, what does it mean, a?
I was wondering, if my FPV plane was lost with the camera and transmitter, can I purchase a repacement treansmitter? I know cameras are available. Just in case this happens, I would like to know my options.
I found this transmitter in hobby king.

Hey can anyone tell me if this will work with the Rx in 900MHZ 200mW Tx/Rx & 1/3-inch CCD Camera PAL 420TVL, PRODUCT ID: CP20012RX4T??
alex.khoroshko 316 points
Yes! The TX channels 1-4 match your receiver's channels 4-7.

Thnx I just wanted to be sure...... Have you used this product with the Rx I mentioned?
Read the comment for this transmitter.

Any reciever for this on hobbyking?

I am pretty sure the receivers sold here with the 900mhz systems will work for this... the top 4 channels match from what I have read below. though they don't sell them seperately from the 900mhz vtx... I would just buy the cheapest set and have a 900mhz vtx for use somewhere else :)
hi all i received mine today i hooked my receiver to my power supply and i plugged transmitter to a 3s 2200mah battery first there was nothing then i tried other channels i finally found what i was looking for but the picture quailty is really low and it is sort of black and white what is my problem? please help me
I couldn't honestly tell you, I was merely responding to your FPV Raptor payload question. I am still debating as to which video system/frequency I will go with. I have seen reports that this system does have a heat issue but also has a far better range than the 5.8Ghz sytems. I think I might just bite the bullet and get it just to see what it is like.
Hello Mar11, I have the Skyrider FPV Raptor 2m from RC Smart in Malaysia and the FPV Raptor 1.6m from Hobby King. They both run the same prop and motor and flew well from the box. The only issue I had was initially not having enough weight onboard. They need to be "Heavy" to make them more controllable at low speed. The motor is a 1400kv and I think the prop is an 8x5 or 8x6. They have tons of power and will do a flap takeoff in about 10-15m. Make sure that the motor and prop are rotating in the correct direction, I initially made that mistake, although I was producing thrust it was not enough.
hi brett thanks for your reply.. ibe got the skyrider 2m the motor and prop are turning in the rigth direction and the prop is in the convex position to the front, whcih is ok but i feel the prop is too ligth and bendy .. dunno but i feel not enought power and cant change the prop due to motor shaft...
900mhz è* piuttosto affollata e per questo motivo sono sorte quelle a 5.8mhz per la videosorveglianza, ambito dal quale derivano queste tx-rx. Se non voli in grandi citta o posti affollati (in termini di apparecchi radio) la 900 è* da preferire per via del fatto che risente meno degli ostacoli). Ciao!
So what frequencies is channel 1,2,3,and 4? I live in the city and 900mhz is making interference. I want to ***p it up to 910 or 980mhz. I could test each channel and see which one works the best but I want to know what the frequencies are so I can buy the right antenna.
Is the camera really 520 TV lines? does anyone know a camera which isn't to much affected by the sun, becaus when I fly with my cam in the sun, al the trees and horizon become black, and it takes a while for the cam to adjust the lightening.
No problems ! In flight your camera circuit board will be automatically cold because of the speed of your plane. Furthermore, even if you use it on the ground, you must know that it's normal if it warms...
Did you see a black screen? Maybe a stupid questions, but did you take off the lens protection from camera? Some tvs has a special function/button to access av channel and you need to change the channel from transmitter and receiver to the same. You need to put antenna to transmitter and receiver too. I hope it helps.
this system is just awesome did first flight recently blew my expectations out of the water very good range and the image quality is so crisp, also its so easy to setup buy a turnigy 500mah 3cell and it all just plugs in and works no setup just mount on plane and go!!!
like these guy's said, 900mhz is the best for flying behind objects, because its a low freq. but in europe 900mhz is the band used by mobile phones, luckely you can use the 1010mhz channel. so 5.8 is good for open fields. 900 mhz is good for EVERYTHING.
it has 8 channels. all of wich work. however depending on where they shipped it to the illegal channels where blocked . some country's dont allow certain channels to be used by the gen public. you can thank the fcc if your in the usa
This is simply not true, all frequencies in this band are illegal for use in my country so with that theory it would have no channels. I think the product is faulty but HK don't ever answer requests for help or any contact at all, I'll just have to log a dispute with Paypal.
You will need to make a little harness up with the plugs supplied. Not too hard just mount all the gear how you want it in the plane and make your cables all the right length. Not too short though as you want to be able to plug things in still. So you will need a bit of extra length for access reasons. Also grab a few of the male version of the balace plug for the lipo. These are great to power up stuff that doesnt' draw too many amps (under 5amps that is). You will be surprised how quickly the
I've removed the goldern color casing. Just 4 screw from each end (my unit had a wrong screw being used). Inside, there is another smaller casing housing of size 5cm long x2.5cm wide x0.8cm thick. Four metal pcs are used to 'jam' the smaller box in position. The signal wire, anntena plug and channel selection button are all contained well inside the smaller metal box. Nevertheless, I've yet to try out the system and hence I don't know what will be the impact of removing the outer casing.
it may overheat as the case helps to dissipate excess heat
Great Product. The Video Tx/Rx will work with an NTSC camera and monitor. Good reception and great range. Even with Stock antenna's. Will be switching cameras and receiver antenna to increase range and clarity.

To get mine going I had to switch the red and white wires around on the plug into the camera. Works great now. The system seems to go well so far. The RX required a 12volt 500mA positive center power supply and works well so far. I used a Turnigy Li-Po 3S 500mA battery to run the camera and transmitter. I could tell the camera wasn't going properly but the transmitter wasn't because there was a black picture instead of static when I first hooked it up. I hope this review saves people the time I wasted to get it going. As always, hobbyking is the best.
best all in one kit on the market today very good range on stock antennas.

decent kit, no instructions on operation, and no power supply...supplied.
video quality as expected, no stupid fisheye effect is a plus.
FYI, transmitter camera weigh a total of 92g

Unit arrived well packaged. No instructions. Removed the gold box from the transmitter and added a heat sink from an old esc to the back of the tin box of the receiver, stuck on with heatsink glue. Had to reverse the plug wires on the camera by carefully prising off the plastic plug outer from the circuit board pins with a blade, reversed it and carefully replaced it back on the pins. This puts the red wire to the right when looking at the back of the camera board with the plug at the bottom. Had to use a 3s lipo battery to get this to work as the current needed is more than a normal 9v battery has. Picture is solid and clear. Will try on a plane soon.
