I saw this FPV system earlier but totally dismissed it because the battery pack and usb thing says 'drone racer'. Nowhere in the pic or description does it say mini-z.

After watching the video I dismissed it again. Sure it's for mini-z, but I don't see it being anything but a novelty. There's a clear delay in the video so it's no use for racing. It also looks like they've cut a hole in the windscreen of the Nissan GTR. And it likely only works with the new radio system.

Don't forget the "gotchas" with this unit as listed on the webpage:

*1 : Can not be installed on MINI-Z Buggy
*2 : Rear shocks need to be removed when installing on MINI-Z Racer. Not compatible with all body styles.
*3 : Requires regulator if connecting to high voltage receiver.
*4:Available for LiFe 2 cells(6.6V) as power supply if connecting to general purpose receiver.

Remove rear shocks lol?!?!?!

That being said, I've run mine with the Spektrum (Fat Shark compatible) Micro camera and Tx, took it off of one of the Nano QX fpv drones. Worked great, stuck it on the roof with double sided tape and a 1s battery to power it. Was a blast on the home track but only worked for a stock MR-03. Anything else was way too fast.

That being said, a race with stock MR-03's, goggles (or monitors) and these little Fatshark/Spektrum units would be a hoot!
