This is is the FPV config. I will add pictures of the mapping setup later.
The camera tilt rig weights less then 100g total.
I am streaming via mjpg-streamer. It works really well. With a wrt54g flashed w/ dd-wrt & stock antennas The video is almost real time. I can barely see any lag. I can record the stream via vlc and view via http. Trying to view via vlc introduced a lot of lag.
The settings that produced the best results were 432x240 @ 24fps
The best thing about mjpg-streamer is the cpu usage on the pi, 1-3% max.
If anyone would like to know how I installed mjpg-streamer, I can post instructions.
here’s a couple snippets of streaming tests with the C525:
I am adding 2 x 2.4ghz 2 amp boosters (wrtt54g & hexa) and a 60 degree beam width 8dbi patch (wrt54g) in the next few days. Then I will have some distance to play with
