Finally this bad boy arrived.

Eachine 700TVL 1/3 Cmos FPV 110 Degree Camera w/32CH Transmission

Placed the order with Banggood back in January and right now items are taking a month to come in.

Still well worth the wait specially since this unit only cost $30 Canadian.

The last 200mw micro transmitter cost me that along back in 2014.

Best of all this one is a 32 channel unit and is compatible with my FatShark goggles.

The board is small like the previous 200mw micro but this one outputs 5v so I can connect my FatShark Pilot HD camera!

It also has a LED light to show the freq vs the hard set switches. Nice touch. I need to get some clear shrink warp.

The camera is a 5v board camera but as you can see it is very clear with superb colour reproduction.

I can't wait to range test this setup.

Looks good. I ordered one as well a few days ago too. I look forward to seeing some footage from it and getting your feedback on it.

I purchased a similar 700TVL camera for my still under construction Tricopter.
The claim was that this is the best camera currently available......
I got the deluxe model with the WDR circuitry - supposed to handle light & dark changes faster/better.
Please let me know how you like it. I'm waiting for a few odd cables and should be able to get it all connected and tested next week.



Best regards,

What kind of range do you get on those 200mw 5.8ghz VTXs?

I was using a 200mw 900mhz system last year and I was impressed at the range. I know 5.8 will be lower but for miniquads 900mhz is just ridiculous.

That's really a YMMV question, but in clear conditions with clear line of site with a good receiver and a 5 turn helical you should get a mile or so. Obviously this can be affected by noise, terrain, weather conditions etc. so as I said above ymmv.

This site can give you a good ballpark for range:
