    Thanks Manu589. I'm actually looking for something bigger but I didn't know about them, I will check their site. I'm just converting an old Zagi to FPV it flies really well. I'm going to use a PNP-50 with it for my camera and vTX.

    Can someone please tell me if this setup is correct

    I have no power getting to the the fatshark vtx. All solder connection are good as I got them professionally done. Initially the vtx worked when hooked up via the supplied power lead and balance lead connection. Power is detected where the power leads are connecting at the core but nothing at vtx or camera jumpers?
    Any ideas?

    You have to move the red/black wires into your tx to the other connector. The port you have them connected to now is actually 5v out for a camera.

    So, what does everyone do to make this a clean RF airplane? I've never had luck getting good video signals out of my planes/quads in the past. It's always dirty.
    I have ordered a shielded cable for the TBS69 camera (12v)
    I fly with a EZUHF 4ch RX (5v from flight controller)
    400mw 1280 Vtx.(12v)
    My recording camera is a Mobius with internal battery. Only USB out to the Ruby OSD.
    Ruby flight controller (5.2v) with mag. and GPS

    Where should I put LC filters?
    Should I wrap any wires with copper tape?
    Should I wrap the ESC in copper tape (get hot?)

    If you can't get clean video you might just be buying crappy equipment. Try a better class of tx and rx. I highly recommend immersion rx 5.8 tx and rx. Looks like cable it's so clear.

    Ya, perhaps I need to do 2.4ghz but would need to change rx and tx. I'll give the capi a try at 1.3 and if no-go, I'll make the move to 2.4.

    I prefer 5.8g for picture quality. But it isn't as good for seeing around hard objects as 1.3. But getting back to your original question, if you are using shielded cables and good quality regulators, and you are still having trouble it's hardware related. Either the hd camera (but I think the Mobius is fine) the Ruby, or the video tx/rx.
