The compact FPV system I have built is only about 20g, now even my mini quadcopter and micro  hexacopter can carry this FPV camera and video transmitter. In this post I will share with you what are the parts you will need and how I made it.

    Super light weight

    … yet includes a heap of unused PCB material and headers instead of being soldered directly.

    I prototype some small stuff, I use headers and extra material too. it makes it easier to revise things. When it works, it will have headers and excess material until I’m sure the hardware is qualified. When it’s good, make it tight, until then, share pics of it and run the hell out of it!
