Spec and Features

  • Dimension: 23*19*22mm
  • Antenna Size: 25*14mm
  • Transmitter Weight: 7 g
  • Accessories: 1 x 3pin JST silicone cable
  • Microphone: Available
  • Supported Channels: 5.8Ghz 40ch
  • FOV: 120°
  • Power Supply: DC 4.8-24V
  • Current: 150mAh @12V (200mW) / 90mAh @ 12V (25mW)
  • Power Switchable: 25mW / 200mW (by push button)
  • Channel Selection: Push Button / PWM
  • NTSC/PAL switchable (solder bridge)


The Camera VTX combination supports raceband, which greatly simplifies FPV for a new user and allows much more flexible VTX receiver matches without looking into channels and frequencies.

The HB25T is 10 grams in weight including cables. This means it is well suited to more powerful brushless micro quads, because it would be too heavy for a tiny whoop (or other small brushed quadcopters). For those you should be looking at VTX/Camera below 5g, such as the FX797/798.

It has a large variation in power input and can be powered directly by 2s to 5s LiPo battery. This small unit has microphone support and also has an OSD input. This is uncommon on micro camera combinations.



The Aomway HB25T features a very compact space saving design. Despite its small size the HB25T has an OSD line in, this allows you connect the camera/VTX to an OSD.

The wide input voltage range means you don’t need a voltage regulator for it to work. This once again saves on space, cost and excess weight of a secondary component.

One of the main points for this small VTX Camera combination is its power switchable capabilities between 25Mw and 200Mw, allowing for frequency usage compliance in many countries around the world.

This feature also allows for use on micro quads indoor using 25 mW or going outside and using it as a small solution on a larger quad and allowing the flyer to benefit from its 200 mW capabilities. The power switch is easy too it does not require you to cut or bridge any solder joint it is controlled by the two buttons on top of the VTX PCB.

The 600TVL camera gives a crisp image. However is easily knocked out of focus by the screw able lens design.

The ability to use PWM to change the channel changing the frequencies allowing for remote use.


The antenna is fixed meaning it is more difficult to mount than a more traditional unscrew-able design.

The exposed brass antenna is soldered directly to the back of the board giving poor durability and a high chance of damage that is more difficult to repair than usual.

The seven segment display isn’t bright enough and requires visibility to check the power and channel, causing a limit to places where the Camera can be changed settings.

Application limited to more powerful brushless setup, as 10g is too heavy for brushed quads.

How To

To Change the power on the VTX press the left hand button when the camera is facing you. TO turn the Camera combination on press the right hand button.

Have got a Aomway HB25T camera, but can never get the OSD working. The camera itself sends nice picture. nothing wrong with that. but, once I connected it with OSD, the picture is unwatchable. I have tried it with F3 deluxe build in OSD (it is a integrated minimOSD), also tried it with a external minimOSD with pixhawk. Same bad picture. Anyone know what the problem is? I have set everything on PAL. (HB25T default)

Bought HB25T two months ago. In general very good AIO camera with good image quality and great VTX range. Switchable PAL/NTSC modes and VTX power output. OSD support is working and doesn’t add any noise in picture which usually appear as slight disturbances in picture when you’re hacking other AIO-s for OSD support. However not all is perfect. First – you must adjust camera focus manually before first use, because focusing ring is loose. Second – this camera is advertised as having 20mm width for mounting in brushless frames with 20mm camera space. In reality it is not possible for most brushless frames because of power/PWM connector which is located at one side. Such connector prevent mounting in frames with 20mm camera space and side plates around camera, because it stick out for another 0.5-1mm. To mount HB25 camera in Firer 130 frame, I was forced to cut power connector completely off. Also not the best performer for cloudy days and evening dusk – image become completely dark in shadowy areas. From other side HB25 have pretty good picture in night under street lights.

no dvr footage on an article about a cam+vtx combo?
i mean this is the only thing people would expect instead of copying banggods product offer

The reviewer had a DVR problem and we were on a tight schedule to publish this review. hopefully he can upload the footage as soon as he gets a new DVR :)
