Yesterday, FT released an episode about DIY micro FPV, and here we have one that is lighter and easier to operate; with adj, power, channels set via button, can be powered by 1s lipo as well as from BEC, with circular polarized antenna... You won this challenge, no questions about it :)

Awesome! Really simple and clean! My respect.
Could you please tell me or show me how you mounted the cam and the regulator on the sender?
Thank you for sharing!

Thanks!. This unit was sold to a friend. Another package parts are in transit. Soon I will build another unit and will post more pictures with details.

Is this actual video from the camera? It looks like you superimposed some video over your controller setup.

Are two overlay videos with the intention of showing the movement of the sticks in flight, I found a comfortable place to superimpose video.

I like the small size - looking to buy the RTU (ready to use) product - any plan to sell this product?
