    So I had an idea for the FC40 that is lightweight but quality. Why not mount a bebop camera with the necessary parts onto the bottom of the FC40? The bebop camera will already have the correct wifi frequency and I think with the right tweaking would work great!

    I did the same thing with an AR drone2.0 and it worked out nicely with a range extender for fpv. Even rigged a gimbal for it. I had the external antenna mod on the AR drone also so I was going to like 1500 yards or so out and had a Google maps display of where it was at too. The camera quality is the only reason I ditched that set up. That wouldn't be a problem with the bebop tho as it has a better camera. Good luck

    Here's a pic of my old setup

    It would be awesome having a stable, gimbal-less system!
