Immortal Hobbies is super excited to announce ( You will see this next battle day as long as I complete the tank ) an Internal First Person View System for less than $200.00, which is a full suite of Plug and Play products for tanker use. Currently the only work is mounting the Camera. Thats right ALL the parts can be mounted inside your tank.
Radio
2 self centered sticks, 2.4ghz with 1 Km range, Controls the Clark Board, 4 Channel full option which means you can plot speed curves to get momentum. 
4 modes so you can have your sticks left or right how ever you want them.
Integrated 3.5" COLOR screen
Video
Real time and record to a micro mini card at the same time, Max 300 meter range,  5.8ghz so it won't interfere with radio control, Multiple channels so other people can use the same band to record their Tank.
Camera is small enough that it will fit inside a turret including Panzer III, Panthers etc.

I have been investing and tweaking in this set up for quite some time and I finally have it all working as a unit. I am actually working on having a second camera mounted so I can do a turret layout and a drivers position and switch between the two but that is for the near future when I get the bugs worked out.
I wasn't going to say anything but I am so excited about this that I had to spill the beans. This is a great move forward for all tankers, everywhere.

Pictures and video will come after April 26th Battle Day. Their is still minor issues I need to iron out as some wires would need to be lengthened to allow use in all tanks but that is minor.
Camera lens placement is the biggest concern due to the wire length, too long and performance goes down too short and the mic only picks up the gears meshing
I might take a video of the tank I have the system in right now but I would prefer a grand introduction.
For testing purposes I had everything outside of the tank But I have stuffed everything that needs to be into the turret of a PZ 4.  With an airsoft unit in the PZ4 I figure that would be the smallest turret for space, I will have the dimmensions of Taigens new T34 shortly.

That's cool. I have FPV on my quadcopter and it should be amazing on a tank.

the quadcopters is where I got the idea so I talked to some manufacturers in China and voila.
Only hard part so far is the SD disc goes into the side of the camera electronics. very hard to find spots where it is easy access to it.

My quad is made by Hubsan, very reputable and good quality, have you tried them?
P.S. just posted my quad on Kijiji 10min. ago.
