You want to see snow if you start to lose signal. If you are flying FPV, and your screen all of a sudden goes blue (or black) you are kinda screwed.

Snowey picture is better than no picture.

So, any updates on these? I'm considering building my first ground station and using this screen. I want a crisp picture, how is the image quality?

I got mine and I enjoy it. I have only performed 2 FPV flights with it, but the picture seems to be decent.

Here's some test video I shot when I first received the LCD:
FPV Ground Station Test (1 min 40 sec)


Well worth the $35 if you ask me.

great, thanks guys! I posted a reply the other day but it doesn't seem to have shown up. subaru4wd, is it just the 808 cam making the picture seem to have a bluish hue or is it the monitor? I know my 808 cam tends to have a blue hue indoors so I assumed it was just that.

How are these screens working for everyone? I was planning on buying one but I came across the amazon page for them with tons of poor reviews stating that the slave screen is amazingly unreliable. Of 104 reviews on amazon, more than half are 2 stars or below! I don't wanna lose a plane or quad because the screen craps out half way through an fpv flight.

I feel like the issue is in the DVD player itself, not the screens. Since we ain't playing no DVDs, we should be fine

There were tons of reports of the slave screens going black and the screen no longer working. I found a brand new 7" Tft screen on Amazon for $35 shipped with great reviews and it got to me next day for free. I'm pretty glad I did because the picture quality is phenominal and it doesnt blue screen. I felt more comfortable buying new but if this one ever kicks the bucket I'll have to try the Phillips.
