I have a FS dominator basic reason didnt buy the built-in VRX because the VRX is expensive while the China made VTX/VRX is cheap like nothing and FS VRX not compatible with the cheap one, so I decided to make my self one for my FS goggle

UPDATE:

10/07/2012
Initial testing was not good, range is awful even with my Clover leaf antenna i think it less than 10 ft, I will need to change the antenna mount which I have already receive from ebay.

Got new RX from Foxtech every is soldered up, Initial ground test seem fine gonna do more test at the field!

09/10/12

Test was successful! after 20 flight the vrx work as i wanted it to!

Part list

- Header pin (need 9 pin)
- Perf board or some shop call this donut board
- PCB Mount SMA male for the VRX note most 5.8ghz use RP-SMA making it to use SMA mean you have to make your own antenna or use a converter
- VRX of course ebay sell the in pair which is recomended! as $22 for a pair!, but Foxtech sell the VRX for $15
