What's the difference between all the 5.8 tx?

Destroyed my stock boscam 200mw tx and in search for a replacement, but there's a ton of stuff out there and it seems to all be the same stuff with different labels on it.. So what would you guys recommend for around $60 or less?

I recommend you buy another Boscam 5.8ghz 200mw again. Less heat, less power, less interference plus more stamina. Give a good 7km on CL/SPW combo antenna because i flown a lot on it.

Just get the same one. 200mw is plenty and you're atleast already familiar with it.

All 200mW are the same, based internally on the SkyRF chipset/module.

Boscam, Foxtech, etc are only labels.
The module itself can be found for about $15, is diy replaceable if average skills, and you are sure module is fried and not the power source.

The mini version is a little noisier due to bad filtering on the voltage regulator, as detailed here. Other than that, they still operate on the same RF module so they should perform the same. Only weight and image quality are a little different.

lol, I love the "here" link, for me was redirected to here, probably is different from country and location.
The filtering is important only for single pack setup, I power mine from a single cell, so a non issue.

Brand is a label, they are all the same, as posted above, thus quality same too.
Range depends rather on a lot of factors external to module, starting with antenna solder and sma plug quality.

And the label is valuable. (Like Android phone: Sumsung, Moto, Sony, Huawei. )

To the quality, it was really have a big difference from one to one. Like the one from Japan or German will quality, and the one from China you may think it was inferiority...

IMO, DJI in RC filed just like the Apple in smartphone filed.....lol
