i went to wall mart one time and checked different Tv. They were all on the wall with same movie and looked at the big names and I was always coming back to this great image: Vizio ! They are affordable and have great picture ! That will be fun for FPV, but you'll need a generator or converter with your car.

It has brightness control and backlight control... you can really crank it up.

VIZIO 19 inch monitor for FPV (1 min 13 sec)


You can have full screen, or 4:3 (native for our FPV equipment) or compressed for a small but high res picture.

There is a big thread on it.
Vizio 19" HD Lcd Monitor
I thought I would start a new thread on the Vizio 19" Monitor available from Target on-line and Target's retail stores.

http://www.target.com/VIZIO-Class-72.../dp/B003DV93LU

They told me that they have a 90day return policy, so you could give it a test ride, and if you don't like it. just return.

VIZIO 19" Class 720p 60Hz LED LCD HDTV - Black (M190MV)
Currently $198.00

I am not sure who original suggested it but it was a great find.

12V DC input.
Static on loss of video. (no blue screen so far)
AV IN
I flew with it today and works great. Direct sunlight makes it pretty hard to see. I have made a sunshade out of 3/16" black foam core from the local craft store that really help. There's plenty of brightness and contrast adjustment. Just started to play with these settings. So far so good.

Nice Art, I'd like that as a monitor. The Haier is fine but small. You'll end up with a 46 inch in the back of your Honda !

carguy - Costco has a 19" Vizio up here for 220, but I can't find if these models are 12v or not.

Will have to wait thought, have to buy the dragonlink and OSD before investing in a new monitor. Anyway I prefer the Fatsharks for me, the monitor is for onlookers. I also have to change the 32 cathodic for a flat screen in the Tv room, but the wife...

We did have a big 40 inches at a funfly 2 years ago. Another member displayed its video link on it for the public, it was a big hit, crowd liked it a lot.We also installed the VTx and camera on an aerobatic plane that did Imaac sequence. We put the monitor under a rigid umbrella.

This lists the powersupply for the TV, it lists a number of models that it works with.

Since I bagan FPV I wanted to have another Stryker to have a faster and more "snappy" airplane. I just bought a Stryker airframe from a guy in my club I'll build it later this spring, already have the esc and motor. I love the Stryker, that will make for a fun FPV plane for those "low and fast" flights around the trees...
