    I don't need sound.
    And these look like they would work for what I want.
    Might take a stab at them.

    I can upgrade to a better one down the line.

    Yeah, for $30 it a good little "entry level" system with getting into onboard wireless.

    Here's a video I took using my wireless mini cam from Ebay.

    Now, this is the mini camera strapped to an R/C chopper so the video breaks up more often than it does when not getting flung around. The videos from my F1 R/C car were great, except I can' find them :( All my bouncing around on the floor and walls and the chopper radio probably wasn't all that gently with the wireless single from the camera.

    If your computer has a composite input then you can input video directly into your computer. No need to go through a VCR first.

    They come as a set, TX, RX and power supply. (9v battery is extra :D )

    Actually, I run most of my stuff through a Dazzle Box that converts from A/V input to whatever digital info goes into a USB2 port. Vid capture from there and done.


    I wondered if they did or not but most of the ones I've seen as a set actually tell you they come as a set.
