I have a couple of the 420 line $16 HK ones, but if this is an improvement, it might be worth a little more. The 420's are actually ok thus far (for downlink work) but I've yet to use them purely for FPV piloting
I bought that cam not too long ago. It works alright unless it hits direct sunlight, then you get thick black bars/interference until you are out of direct sunlight. The problem seems to be a lot worse ever since i hooked my cam up to Nova OSD, so... I dont know. Funny thing is, I could live with it when it was just the cam and transmitter - nova made it worse. The picture is pretty good on it as well.
In any case, I have a different camera on the way, so I've got no use for it now. Maybe they're all like that, maybe its just mine.
