I'm using a Turnigy hard case 5800mah 11.1v battery. The VuePoint only requires 5v. I have a voltage regulators hidden underneath the bottom plate. Like my goggles only require 3.1 to 3.5v so they have a reg to adjust for them. The monitor runs off of 12v to 11v so no issue there. The 5.8mhz Rx are 12v so no issue there either. Works really good. I looked and looked for something that had more than 1 output that would allow different voltages to no avail. I asked several people about this but they seemed not to under stand I wanted something with 1 12v input with multiple outputs 1v to 12v with adjustable voltages. So I bought these regulators off of ebay. The regs I got handle up to 32v in or out and down to 1v.

Thanks a lot Zann68! I receive my Vupoint today, i did some test at home, but i have nothing to power the vupoint at the feinld. I guess i will buy a 5v reg on Ebay :)

The video format is .ASF, i tought it was .AVI format :( The first video i take from it is bad, maby i did not use the right NTSC PAL selection, or my SD card is cheap, do you have any issue with the VuPoint at first uses?

oh, by the way can u link me to the regulator u use, i just dont know if i got to buy the cheapest or something better.
thanks!

No the video is fine on mine. Now it's not HD quality but it works for my application. I use NTSC format. I use a Nikon camera for HD video though. The VuPoint I use with the hud video.

Well been enjoying my EppFPV but I did not care for the way I had mounted the Camera, GPS & Video Transmitter. My camera started to work itself loose and the Velcro was also not holding well to the EPP foam. I could find pod mounts for several different planes for example the Bixler. I could not find any for the EPP FPV HK plane. So this is my solution to the problem. Will test it out next weekend.

Wow! Looks brilliant and might be worth offering to others as an option?

Nice work!
