    What are you using for video transmission to the ground station?
    was looking a connex Proflight but it only works with their camera
    I need something that will take video out of my Gx85

    The Digital solutions for FPV are still so new, very expensive, highly proprietary, and still leave a bit to be desired range-wise.

    Not sure what to tell you for videoing out of your GX85.

    May I asked, are your just looking to frame shots? Or have that impressive HD downlink like the Solo and DJI Mumbo Jumbo. ?

    Thought about analog?

    Take a look at the EZ Wifibroadcast project, a DIY hd transmission made from RaspberryPi, cheap wifi dongles.
    It works on 2.3/2.4/5.8 Ghz Bands.
    Video transmission latency is about 130ms.
    Diversity video reception
    OSD with support for Mavlink protocole, etc........

    You need the Auvidea B101 HDMI to CSI Adapter (about 80$) if you want hdmi input for the Raspberry Pi :
    Auvidea – audio video media

    Here's the link for the project:

    been looking at a Joule for video processing, its the transmission part I am hung up on. I read that documentation but it is not very easy to follow, plus I have 0 Pi experience.
    I am not worried about osd, I usually fly with tower and a tranis, so get plenty of telemetry. I just need video feed for framing
