Is it all "plug and play" or did you have to make up some wiring yourself?

If so is it possible to post a sketch of how you wired everything up?

Willing to bet its something simple. Either something isn't plugged in all the way, the switch on the Fatsharks isn't in the right position, or something doesn't have power.

Could it be channel selection?

ok so it cant be the camera or the fat sharks because if i connect the camera directly to the fat shark i get a clear and solid video signal in the goggles.
the problem must be either between the GoPro and the video transmitter, between the video- transmitter and receiver or between the video receiver and the Fat Shark or in either the transmitter or the receiver itself.

hope you can see something i cant... :-(
