I'm very new to RC so please excuse any stupid statements. I am a student taking part in a rocket project. At about 80-90km the rocket will deploy a spherical probe 45cm in diameter from the side. What we would really like to do is put a camera and wireless transmitter in the probe sending video back to the receiver in the rocket for viewing on retrieval. We would like to take video from a distance of about 1.5 up to 10 meters from the rocket. As space and weight are an issue we really need components which are as small as possible.
The smallest combination I can find at an affordable price are:
However, I have seen mentioned on another forum that some people have had issues with products from FPVhobby getting delayed in customs for failing to meet regulations etc... I'm not sure if this would be the case for Ireland but really can't afford the risk.
I do also have some concerns about the quality of construction/soldering/operation. Can anyone comment here?
I need components which can withstand 20g of acceleration but online info for such components seem pretty minimal, and datasheets seem to be very rare.
I've been looking around for alternatives with similar sizes but can't seem to get all 3 (camera, receiver, transmitter).
The nearest I can find are:
but the receivers are all way bigger.
I have read that it is not possible to mix and match brands of transmitters/receivers so I'm at a bit of a loss here. Can anyone recommend and alternative solution or vendor with similarly sized products to FPVHobby?
Thanks very much for your help,
