Here we have the Aomway FPV Combo – a 700TVL CMOS camera and a 5.8Ghz 200mW video transmitter both in one small package.

Get your Aomway 700tvl FPV camera and 5.8Ghz 200mW VTX from Hobbyking.

Great features

This FPV setup is perfect for those who are looking for a FPV setup yet want to save space on their aircraft. I think it would be a great choice for larger size multirotors and fixed wings, where you share the same setup between multiple aircrafts, put it on, power it and just take off!

There is absolute zero cable mess! Because the VTX is already connected to the camera, users don’t have to worry about wiring. Power up this unit and it will just work!

To sum up:

  • Small size and light weight setup
  • no wiring mess, no soldering required, plug and play!
  • VTX accepts wide range of input voltage (2S to 5S), and it powers the camera with 5V.

Things can be done better

However, there are some shortcomings:

  • Cannot incorporate OSD into this FPV setup, as camera is directly connected to VTX.
  • VTX position is fixed, so video transmitter connector points upward might be awkward with mounting for some people, especially for mini quad.

Things you might need to know

  • The antenna connector on the VTX is SMA.
  • Input voltage is 7V~24V.
  • Dimension is 40mm x 38mm x 23mm.
  • Weights 19g excluding cables and antenna

You can actually buy the camera separately. It’s a pretty good camera that has 170 degree FOV for FPV. However be aware that this camera takes only 3.6-5.5V DC.

Another good thing about this camera is the 3D printed angle tilt mount that comes with it. Unscrew the lens out of the camera, put the mount on, and then the lens back on. You will need to re-adjust the camera focus and it takes some effort to do, but it does a pretty good job holding your camera to a desirable angle.

What could better is dat they use a CCD cam. I don’t like CMOS for fpv.

Hi Oscar,

Can the camera and the transmitter be separated? It would be cheaper then buying them separate.

i think they can if you force it… and break the plastic part that is holding them together.

Several banggood reviews mention the fact that you can unclips the camera from the VTX and use a cable between them.
