 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

Hi, I'm finishing my hexacopter, and I would like to be able to watch what I am going to record with my camara, I don't need any fast transmition or any good image, I just want to have an image of what is my  camara looking at... so, what would you recomend me to use for it? I have read that with an Xbee pro it is impossible, I am going to catch the image with my computer, so does anyone have an idea of what do I need?

Thanks since now!

A dedicated 2.4 or 5GHz video sender.

I don't know - depends where you are.
Have a look on ebay.

I have a couple that were part of a wireless security camera package, barely bigger than the BNC plug they were attached to, weighing no more than about 15g, complete with electret microphone.
Range may be an issue for you - these are only good for about 50 metres in open-space.

And what do you think abou using 3G to transmit it to my pc? I really don't need any fliud image, 10 pic/ second would be great!

t depends what you want the images for.
If it is just to have a record of the flight, 3G is probably OK, but if you want the images to fly the device, then I think the lag would be unacceptable.

In terms of 3G/4G, I would read the fine print on your provider's plan, and see how much data they allow before charging you by the megabyte, slowing down the transfer speed, or shutting off the data flow completely.  Note, that in the USA at least, cell phone companies have a strange notion of what the word 'unlimited' means.  Before I got FIOS, I used a 3G system to connect my house to the internet, and according to Sprint, unlimited meant 5 gigabytes.

These is the situation, I will be watching from land the hexacopter, so I don't need the image to fly it, the image i Want to transmit is just to see what I am going to record, I mean, look if I'm pointing well, because the camara has also movement by 2 servos

but being honest, I need at least 150m range for the video... what are my options, get a verry powerfull 3G or 4G...

and by the way is it possible to do it by using a normal arduino uno o mega and a mboile modem conected by using usb? with mobile modem I mean these little things with a very short usb cable...
