How could I connect an FPV camera to an SD card before transmission to a display? Answered

Hi everyone, I'm pretty new to RC and I'm now looking at getting some FPV gear (camera - HS1177, transmitter - ImmersionRC 25mW 5.8GHz, receiver and display). I'd also really like to record my flights which would usually mean having a second camera on board (but I don't have the space) or recording the transmitted video (but transmission can introduce noise) so I would like to put an SD card in parallel to the transmitter. I imagine that if it is possible it's more complicated than what I've drawn but I was hoping for something along those lines.

Thanks in advance for any help that you could give me :)


Thanks for the responses, there are a couple of options available but I have decided to just use a ground based recorder as it is easier to implement.

A second receiver connected to a recording device is all you need. That way you don't have to have additional hardware weighing down your quad.

You need extra hardware or a camera that supports what you need.
The cam provides a video signal that the transceiver uses.
You need to add the hardware to capture that stream and save it on the SD.
