Just putting my 2 pence on this,

I've used Boscam and Fatshark over the years, but always gone back to Boscam for simplicity of setup, solid working unit and great price.
Had countless 200mw units, and the 400mw ones are a beast!

The new 600 ones dont have as much power as the 400, but they have the advantage of 32ch =]

I'm liking this stuff so far, it seems to work ok. When I switched to a proper antenna it was slightly better. Range isn't super great, but it's good enough for most things. There's a higher power version available...

http://www.getfpv.com/lumenier-tx5g6...ansmitter.html - 600mW

We are using a separate camera operator and this for live view, then we have the DVR from the Dominator goggles to preview with, greatly reducing the fussing around with the GoPro on the gimbal.

Mad Mushroom RP SMA Conversion

I've converted my VAS Mad Mushroom antenna to RP SMA (I got poor results using an adapter).

It was my first time prepping and doing solder work on antenna coax cable. Thus the roughness of the work and the ragged edges. It's solid though.

hello everyone! I'm trying to complete skymule FPV setup.
I have 2 goals: 15+ miles away trip and 1.5+ miles up trip.

Is this component plaement ok?
I worry Vtx (1Wt 1280Mhz RMRC TX) not to interfere GPS and RC signals...

my RC receiver has diversity so I decided to use semi-rigid IBCrazy's dipole on the tail to provide good signal when I go miles away and IBCrazy's Turnstyle antenna on the top of the wing when I go back or when I'm circling above myself to climb

on the ground I have yagi on the RC Tx and crosshair on the Vrx. both antennas are mounted on the antenna tracker

Hi, im having trouble setting up a FPV plane. I have a DX6 with a Dragonlink unit and am trying to set up a Eagletree Vector . im having trouble making it work . The DX6 and Dragonlink work fine but now im trying to use a Vector and dont know how to make/use/program a "mode" switch on the transmitter.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thankyou.

I would move the video transmitter antenna out to the wing.
