I found this camera worked just fine with HK 1.2 ghz mini TXRX combo and I was able to fly FPV with it easily.
I would recommend getting some shrink rap over the body and some hot glue around the wires.Really, really small camera. Didn't test the led light, but camera works as it should. The cables are very small and broke soon, so I soldered a servocable at the camera. On the camera image is some sort of ghost image. You can see the pcb pattern but after wrapping a tape around the lens, they are gone.Lustige kleine Kamera. Die Kabel sind optimal geeignet, um sie nach dem Einatmen wieder aus der Nase zu ziehen - so klein ist die.... lol. . FPV FatShar. . / .I'm surprised by the quality of this camera. I thought to give it a try because it's so cheap. The image quality is pretty good despite it's size. The size itself is also incredible. I thought it would be around the size of my finger but it would fit twice. Like others said, if you put black shrink tube around the lens, the weird pattern is gone. This camera gives a sharp image from 10cm to 100metres. In dark conditions there is still a pretty good image (without the ledring). See file section for photos called "imagetest".Not exactly top quality but as a cheap camera for use on small FPV models it is not bad.this cam works great for the price.Nice little camera. I havn`t test it in the air.
On the ground it looks ok for it`s price, but it would be perfect, if HobbyKing also stocks wide angle lens for it. 60 angle is to narrow for FPV.
put black tape around cam otherwise you see the circuit board on the image. This is why 4 starsunforntunaitly this camera is PAL so if you need NTSC do not get this one
