Pretty new to these parts. I'm setting up a F550 with Vector on board. I'm not really planning on doing much FPV, but I want to see what my camera is looking at. I picked up the monitor below. I know it's small, but again, I just want to see my OSD. Think that will work? Powered off of a 3s.

Seems like a good price, but it doesnt give any of the vital specs that you want in an fpv monitor. It doesnt mention anything about the brightness or contrast ratio. It would probably fine inside a house or RV as its designed for, But out in the open it may be very dim. I dont think I would buy it to be honest without knowing those specs. For an extra 20 or 30 bucks you can get a much better one. you really want one with at least a 450 rating on brightness. The higher the better from what I've read. And besides, Best Buys price are always overly inflated.
You can always hook up your receiver to any tv that has a composite plugs if your just wanting to see Vectors OSD. I hooked mine up to my 46" Sony Bravia to do the same thing.

Thanks guys. I actually already have it in hand. I hooked it up to my Sony camera, and it's not too bad. You can adjust the brightness, contrast, etc. I was thinking about making a wrist strap and putting it on the inside of my left arm.
We'll see. Trial, and error.
Thanks for chiming in.
