I am starting this thread a bit earlier than anticipated.
I am going to build a body for my Traxxas Summit capable of housing long-range fpv gear inside. I started with a newer plastic model Tonka fire rescue truck. It is not nearly large enough, so I have cut it in half width-wise and will be stretching it long and tall by adding wood and fiberglass. I have a foggy vision for what it might look like
Electronics so far include
1500mW 1.3 GHz Video Tx/Rx with Bluebeam whip antennas
500mW 433 MHz Dragonlink V2 with stock antennas paired with a Futaba 9cap Tx
Cameras include 600TVL SONY SUPER HAD CCD D-WDR Color Board Camera for live fpv and GoPro Hero2 for recording
I was hoping to use my laptop with a dazzle a/v recorder and virtualdub software but I can't get the video to show when I directly connect the camera to the dazzle. Is this because the dazzle records at 720x480 and the sony camera is NTSC: 768(H)×494(V)? My camcorder outputs to the dazzle and shows up fine in virtualdub. I also tried my 46" TV as a display and can't get video from the camera.
Pictures to follow...
