DIY Cheap Target Camera $100 +2Miles – Solution #1 – FPV Camera ROTG01, Spotter V2 Micro FPV

Looking For A Cheap Long Range Target Camera?

After hands-on testing a few target cameras, I was very dis-impressed with the quality let alone how much they are charging for them. I set out to see what options I can come up with by putting my electronics background to use. Here is Solution #1 as I’ll be trying other types of video/audio transmitters. Adding a camera spotter will help get you on target faster thus saving you time and more importantly hair loss due to frustration.  Oh yeah, cash as well.

Definitely a popular topic. I saw this when you posted it to your YouTube channel on Aug 1st and then again here today. Checked Amazon and the Spotter V2 is already sold out. LOL. I’m definitely going to try this out myself. Thanks for the info.

Will the FPV receiver connect to a laptop? or does it need to be a tablet.
