I got this combined Fat Shark transmitter/micro camera and FPV headset combo :
From Magic Box Hobbies in Vancouver.
It comes with pretty much everything you need to get going for FPV (First Person View) besides the power for the VA1100 camera itself :
- Spektrum VA1100 Ultra Micro FPV camera.
- Fat Shark Teleporter V4 FPV headset.
- Spironet RHCP antenna.
- 760mAh 7.4V LiPo headset battery with charger.
- Y-harness camera power connector and lens cloth.
Everything is well-packaged :
Spektrum VA1100 Ultra Micro FPV camera
The camera is tiny ! And weighs about 4g !
The antenna is soldered on the transmitter itself (for FCC rules?) :
Fat Shark Teleporter V4 FPV goggles
Inside the Fat Shark package there are :
- The Teleporter goggles themselves.
- Spironet RHCP antenna for the goggles.
- A 7.4V 760mAh Li-Po battery.
- Carrying case for the goggles.
- Composite output cable.
- S-video output cable.
- Cloth lens wipe.
- Instruction manual covering the goggles -and- the VA1100 camera.
- A sheet of Fat Shark stickers.
Interestingly enough, there’s a QA pass tag inside saying it was checked okay on 2014/10.
The goggles are pretty neat – though they only have 320×240 resolution. I also need to wear my contacts with them because my eyesight is horrible. Even the diopter insert kit doesn’t have the correction I need (I’m at -5.5 and -8.5). I’m going to see if a local glasses store can grind down some of my old eyeglass lens to fit the slots.
The battery plugs into the right side and tucks into a loop on the headstrap – it’s a little bit unstable and can fall out if you pull the headstrap too much.
7.4V Li-Po Charger
The charger is nothing special but does the job. It also comes with various international power adaptors :
The SPMVS1100 kit is not too bad as a starter kit – the goggles are amazing going from nothing but I can see them getting outgrown fairly quickly.
The VA1100 micro camera/transmitter combo is quite nice – the connector is the wrong type for my LaTrax Alias quadcopter but I’m going to figure out some way to run it off the quadcopter’s battery.
I’m kind of happy I got this kit though I think it might be reaching near end of sale life.
