Default dubious power claims

Another thing to keep in mind is that these Hong Kong vendors are suspected of stating some very misleading information regarding the power output of their cameras.

I have heard it said over on the RC-CAM forum that the vendors will state the power drawn from the battery, and NOT the actual RF power being transmitted.

By way of example, my 200mw (RF power) transmitter draws 240ma at 5v. If I were an unscrupulous vendor, I would state that this was a 1200mw transmitter! Good thing I'm not
