900MHZ 200mW Tx/Rx & 1/3-inch CCD Camera PAL 420TVL
12 Channel 900Mhz Tx/Rx video system with CCD camera. Great for FPV systems in countries with less restrictive RF power output.
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 4 channel Video Transmitter (200mW)
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
hey, the polarity of the receiver can be found if you open up the receiver and see the silkscreen on the circuit board!
To save you the trouble let me tell it to you.....the outside of the dc pin/plug that you will be connecting to the 'DC 12v' input should be ground(negative) and the inside positive!
Hope this helps! :-)
Yea man, a lot of people are having this problem for a long time!
Try live chat(top right corner of the page) instead of waiting for them to reply... or try the solution below -
First check if you have connected the wires correctly to the camera board...... The red wire on the connector is for positive, the black for ground, and the white one is for video.... read the silkscreen on the camera board to know which pin is for what. Out of the box the pins are reversed, so check 1st and then connect.
also check the battery you use.... must be atleast a 11.1 volts(3S) and 20C discharge!
Hope this helps! :-)
I just received mine and it doesnt come up with any video on my display no atter which channel combination i use. I noticed that even my tx heating up a little bit. Please advice me on what to do as i am really new to this.

Btw what power supply did you use?
I noticed something crucial when first inspecting the parts. The white connector on the camera (looks a bit like a small jst connector) seems to be reversed as per the silkscreen printings on the PCB, where vout(white) is where should be, black wire (ground) is where it should be, and red (positive) is where vout should be.
Can anyone check this on theirs to see if it's a silkscreen flaw or if the connector was put on backwards on mine only?
silkscreen printing is correct.My TxRx was not working when I connected it with the supplied harness, then I inter changed the white and red wires it started working alright. Please everybody check this before powering up.
Boaterguy - The given connector is reversed (the silkscreen is correct). There are two solutions to this problem -
1) Take out the female part of the connector(the white part on the camera board where you connect your male connector) so that only the three pins are left. Now you can connect the male part as per requirement(upside down).
2)If you look at the camera board closely, you will see that there are three holes for vout, gnd, v , you can use these holes to solder your own wires and use as per requirement!
Yes i noticed the connector going into the camera is reversed. Does anyone know what the different colored wires on the transmitter are for? I am using the 1.2Ghz transmitter actually... Yellow, Red, Black and White wires?
bonjour , j'ai un problè*me avec é*metteur vidé*o il fonctionne pas trè*s bien , le ré*cepteur avait un dé*faut de contact a la prise ,j'ai du ressouder , maintenant c bon pour le ré*cepteur
mais l’*é*metteur il y a vraiment un problè*me ne fonctionne pas trè*s bien malgré* changer plusieurs antenne et malgré* changement de canal seul le canal 5 fonctionne quand il veut ,porter maxi 10 mettre
well, I finally received my 900MHZ 200mW Tx/Rx & 1/3-inch CCD Camera PAL 420TVL after more than 3 weeks!
I connected everything correctly and the Tx and the Rx are working perfectly, but the camera is acting weird at times. The video sent turns black and white when there is even the slightest vibrations and then the color comes back suddenly when the camera is perfectly still......... can anyone tell me if I've received a faulty camera??
Yesterday I got my 12 Channel 900Mhz Tx/Rx video system with CCD camera.
SONY CCD 1/3inch Camera
900Mhz 4 channel Video Transmitter (200mW)
900Mhz 12 channel Video Receiver
Frequency: 0.9G 0.910G,0.980G,1.010G,1.040G.
Today I connected everything as per the manual and tried all the channel combination with the DIP switch in the Tx, but no signal is received or shown in the display (LCD TV). The TX module is heating up little bit.Can anybody explain a correct method to find out all are working well and correct turning procedure.
I have the 1500mw version and it does interfere with 2.4g. Obviously a lot more poweful. First thing ensure your antennas are as far from each other as possible if this does not fix you may need a 900mhz low pass filter. This is what I have done and it works.
Ok, I still can't reply for some weird reason, but okey, thank you Roger, then I know. And I bet that the receiver from the 2.4GHz kit isn't capable to go down to 1.2GHz? The problem is that I live in Sweden, and 900MHz is unlegal to use here, so I must use 1.2GhHz, 2.4GHz or 5.8, and I would rather buy the 2.4GHz kit and a 1.2GHz transmitter from HobbyKing, then a 900MHz kit and the transmitter, because I could have to use the 2.4GHz system, but I will never use the 900MHz (I just can't use it here in Sweden). It would be very very nice if HobbyKing had a 1.2GHz kit, and not only a transmitter, but I can't do anything about that right now. Maybe it's possible to contact HobbyKing support and ask for them to send this kit but with the 1.2GHz transmitter instead of the 900MHz? If they could, it would be amazing.
I really don't know what's wrong, because when I click the REPLY-button, and then log in, nothing happens, I can't reply, so I will reply here instead to the post below:
Are you really sure about that? Because I know that only 4 channels on this receiver will work with this 900MHz-system, and I know that 4 channel on this receiver works with the 1.2GHz-system, so why wouldn't the last 4 channels on the receiver work with the 2.4GHz-system? Even if you're a Pro Contributor, I think you should check one more time.
Just to clarify, the sizing of the transmitter is 31x88x8mm, because it seems to be smaller than other transmitters, yet it is measured to be a lot larger. So, is this the correct size of the transmitter?
more power - beter signal, biger range of transmiting. Talking about frequency there is no diference what chanel you will use becouse it is a very big diferent between control system(GHz - 10^9) and video transmiting system (MHz - 10^6), only one thing if you whant better signal place control system and video transmiting system antenas as far as possible from each other and try that less power wire would be near the video transmiting system and antenas outside the plane...
This is what i want for y birthday :) Also if hobyking bring in thir shop a pair of googles i will declare myself a happy man.

Cannot this set transmit the sound? The transmission of the sound is hoped for. Does it only have to be put up the microphone?

I dont see what you're all on about, I fly with a 10mw tx and i get 3-4 km easily its al about how you set up your plane and having good antenna's 200 mW is more then sufficient.

Yeah... It has good range but i will be changing the antennae for easy installation on my tricopter... otherwise it is very good... it is the same tx picked from the local china market... not even modified... but works good.

Please post reviews after you own and test this system. Other comments should go into the discussion.
