Ts5823 32 ch tx

Ts5823 32 ch 200 mw tx

Anyone got one and checked out the range?
I have one and a am little disappointed with the range, less than half of my fS 250mw tx
Don't know if I just got a bum one or if that's all you get.
I really like the size of it but just can't live the the range.

We don't fly long range but strapped one on a Radian and I flew it LOS till it was a speck probably 2500' up and the picture was clear in Skyzone goggles with a $5. C/L antenna on the tx. Some have reported lines in the image from interference when powering from the flight pack due to motor noise but we have several on different planes with no static noticeable in goggles and the image matches Fshark tx's .
Try powering it off a separate little 2S lipo and see if it clears up.

TS5823 vs TS351

I don't seem to have any trouble with mine. Good light weight option for mini quads.

I seem to get far less range with this antenna over the stock!
What would be the best antenna?
Thanks

Make sure the version of transmitter you got is RP-SMA to match the pictured antenna. (should have a pin in the middle on the tx) I have seen both Standard and RP antenna connections available on this mini Tx from various vendors.

So your transmitter is a Standard SMA and your cloverleaf is RP-SMA - no go without an adapter-
Glad I could help....

PS, want to sell me that cloverleaf...?

Hi Rick,
I picked up one of those and put it on my mini quad. The range seemed ok (in the limited distance I fly) but what I did notice was faint horizontal running lines (kind if like too much video gain) going from top to bottom of the picture, and some faint diagonal wavy lines as well. This was all on the bench with no motors running.

I also saw some occasional video breakup for just a moment while flying.

Changed it for the 600mw 32 channel model and all was well.

The mini quad didn't even notice the difference....

Hi everyone, I initially got the 5823 for my Walkera QR Ladybird to do FPV but it does not supply enough voltage, so I thought I would try it with my newly acquired Hoten-X. But as I am relatively new to FPV and flying quadcopters (less than 1 year) do you guys have any camera recommendations?
