Introducing the FX-950TW Detached Camera Combo with Switchable VTX 25mW and 200mW!
I (Jesse Perkins) worked with FX to design this combo and I couldn't be more proud of it. Using the new and improved switchable 25mW or 200mW super-light VTX from FX and the tiny camera from the FX900TW, this combo is wired together to save you all the trouble of creating your own 'mullet-modded' combo and is incredibly light. With the included mount designed by Tiny Whoop's very own sponsored pilot (BluJ), this combo is easy to install and ready for you to add the Canopy of your choosing. We replaced the cheap plastic-coated wires with silicone and made them the right length for easy installation and some variations. These combos are available in RHCP, LHCP, and the slightly lighter Dipole version.
The camera itself is the same as the camera from the FX900TW - we're just still in love with it! With the widest dynamic range I've ever seen on this scale, this camera retains detail in the lightest lights and the darkest darks. For most uses of this camera people add a bit of contrast in their goggles, but if you're flying in VERY low light, back off on the contrast and watch all that detail come out!
For those not familiar with RHCP vs LHCP antennas, the use of different directions on the circular polarized antennas helps pilots with close channels have better video. If you show up with a race with the only LHCP antenna, you are less likely to have interference from those nearby channels using RHCP antennas. The ideal setup for a race, if it had, say, 6 pilots, would be to alternate antennas on the channels from low to high.
If you use the Left Hand version be sure you have a Left Hand receiver antenna on your goggles or ground station, like the LHCP Triumph available here.
With the pigtail trimmed to length the RHCP and LHCP versions weigh 3.4g and the Dipole, version weighs just over 3g. About a gram lighter than what most pilots are used to flying, this 1g weight loss increases your aircraft's performance noticeably. I flew the prototype version of this combo in the Alley Cat Coffee Cup Invitational. I now believe that with or without a canopy this camera will become the new standard.
This VTX is 37 channels and cannot transmit at e4, e7, and e8.
