FPV means "First Person Video" and is used for video transmission from personal drones.
I've been trying to figure out how to go totally wireless with astro video astronomy. Orion has the WiFi RS232 devices for control, but wireless video seems to lacking options. I stumbled onto the new 5.8gig FPV 7" tablets used for drones. Seems the price is very low, but not sure about the video quality. Would this work with acceptable quality for astro video?
You can see many on ebay if you search for "5.8G FPV Monitor".
A 5.8gig wireless video transmitter and FPV 7" tablet with built in receiver are as little as $150.
The transmitter takes composite video input and so can be used with any astro video camera.
Is this the best solution? Is anybody using these for astronomy? Is there a better WiFi solution at this price?
Ideally it would be great if there were a WiFi box that transmitted several video and control (rs232) channels, but have found none.
