    Awesome! Fpv udr!!!! I was just about to ask in the other thread what the blue thing was for. And now i know. Haha. If you find a setup that is a bit less glitchy let us know what you get. Thats about the same video quality i get out of my fpv racing drone. There is ALOT to learn when getting into fpv. And i just cant seem to make sence on any of it. Guess thats why im a consruction worker and not an engineer. Lol
    If it still moves, it aint broke enough!

    I have been doing something similar, but with a different set of equipment. So far I have tested the recording (Somehow Works after waterproof coating), and tested the 5.8Ghz broadcasting (Still need to waterproof). The only thing I am still working on for my setup is trying to hookup a servo for turn the camera towards the direction im turning. The camera is a Runcam Split 2, I have also switched the Tx/Rx for control to a DX5C & SR415, running 7.4v from a CastleCreations WP BEC running a Savox SW1210MG and have a Savox SW-0230MG I plan to try and use for camera turning.

    it can record and video out at the same time.

    OMG the FPV cam replacing the drivers head is hilarious! I actually bursted out laughing! I have some good FPV footage of a friend and I drift racing a p4de that I just need to edit and upload to my YouTube channel!(EvHexRC 1) It will be up sometime soon, but as I always like to say: procrastination makes perfect!

    Just got another good test run in with my UDR FPV setup. I have changed a few things to try and correct for some problems with the previous setup. Once I get everything dialed in I will post a full build log to show what I added, and how its wired.

    I will post pictures of the current equipment within the next couple of days (Hopefully) once i have my new body / interior painted.

    Any update on the thread?

    Im planning how to install the FPV, and Im looking the best way to power it.

    Im also working on installing the camera inside a helmet, I have printed a helmet with original size and Im working on the visor. This not only will keep the scale looking, also will protect the camera from dirt and make it splash proof.





    I have ordered a Foxeer Cat cam, and a AKK Infinite DVR VTX, so I can also use as a DVR.

    My idea is to install a 45 micro servo to move the cam/helmet, connecting somehow to the steering servo, Im not sure if using a dual harness or if the Traxxas receiver can be configured to use a secondary mixed channel (I will ask for this), and connect the cam to the transmitter using the vent tubes, so the transmitter box could look like a filter box and a paggoda antenna like the filter.

    Do you know if you can get power from Velineon VXL-6S Accessory Port? Im using it to power the LED KIT, but I dont know the wiring of this port, so Im afraid of using without more information.

    I like what I have seen about the DJI FPV headset and camera set and am curious how well it works. I would like to outfit my UDR with something for sure. Post some new pics of your helmet camera armor! The images you attached wouldnt open for me for some reason.
