Smart Phone FPV

Use a smart phone to display video transmitted from an integrated camera / transmitter unit.

Camera & Transmitter

This is the Quanum FPVME camera / 5.8GHz transmitter module.

 

The camera is 700TVL, 170 degree wide angle lens, 1280 x 960 pixels, minimum lamination is 0.5 lux. A lens cover is supplied.

 

The transmitter power is adjustable from 20mW to 200mW using a small potentiometer. The frequency is adjusted with a single press button over 40 channels.

 

Power supply is 3.5 to 5.0 volts. It is suitable for a 1S lipo battery.

 

I replaced the servo connector with a male JST connector to be compatible with a 1S battery.

 

I bought the FPVME from here.

5.8Ghz OTG Receiver

 

Before buying this, check that your phone supports UVC. (USB Video Class driver)

This is the Eachine ROTG01 UVC OTG FPV Receiver. It has a frequency range of 5649 to 5945 GHz. It is powered by the smart phone it is plugged into, using 200mA at 5V. It comes with a dipole antenna but I attached a clover leaf antenna instead to be compatible with the transmitter antenna.

 

It works well with my Motorola moto g4 PLUS phone.

 

Note that the USB cable supplied with the ROTG01 has a micro USB plug at each end but the cable will only work one way. If it does not work one way, turn it around and try the other way.

 

I bought the OTG receiver from here. There is a list of compatible phones on this web site.

 

Smart Phone Application. – ‘Go FPV’

Download this application from the Google Play Store.

 

Operating the Receiver

 

 

 

Plug in the OTG receiver and run the ‘Go FPV’ application.

 

 

Press and hold the button on the OTG receiver for a few seconds and the receiver scans the frequency range. On completion, it tunes in to the strongest signal. Alternatively, you can select a frequency manually.

 

 

 

 

Once the scan is complete, after a few seconds, the video is displayed.

 

Single screen or dual screen can be chosen to suit the goggles to be used.

 

Use the video icon to record the video.

Goggles

Kaiser BAAS VR Headset

The phone is placed in the headset tray using the spring loaded clamps. The focus of each lens can be adjusted separately. If you normally wear glasses, the focus can be set so that you can wear this headset without glasses. The distance between the lenses can also be adjusted.

 

 

The OTG receiver is attached to the side of the goggles using self-adhesive hook & loop tape like Velcro. I bought my headset from here. Very inexpensive!

 

 

 

Use dual screen mode for these goggles.

FPVStyle Cardboard Headset

 

I bought this headset from here. This one does not have the adjustments that the Kaiser BAAS headset has The OTG receiver is attached to the side of the goggles using self-adhesive hook & loop tape like Velcro.

 

 

Use single screen mode for this headset because it has one large Fresnel lens instead of a lens for each eye.
