For Sale
7 inch LCD TV w/ inputs for FPV

Guys,
I just purchased a new 7inch screen at CVS
Work great for FPV
Comes with rechargeable batteries
Small form factor so it fits great in my base station case
Retail is $139 - they are currently on sale for $29.99
It's a great buy -

I'm not selling mine - I'm only alerting you that they are a great buy at CVS stores

I thought you guys might like to know

Good find. Did you purchase it online or at the store? I'm looking online, but don't see any on sale for 29.99 :/

Just got mine..

$32.17 with tax.

Guess the store had about 18 of them...

Oh, they did not have them on the shelves, though..
You had to ask them, I gave them the Sku#

We may have to get some of you to buy for us. I tried two stores on my way home and nothing.

Thanks for the tip-off on this! By gradually forming base station will now have a guest monitor!

I picked up one here in Rocklin (nor-cal). They had 2 on the shelf still but I think the employees were eyeballing them after they rang up at 29.99.

Unfortunately, there is a nasty 6.00 charge that the fascist state charges for 'electronic disposal'. When I am done with it, I'm going to leave it on the lawn of the Slackramento capital building in a thousand smashed bits just to get my money worth. (jk)

I also picked one up in Knoxville, TN. It was the last one being kept in managers office, I hope he wasn't saving it for himself. I'll be using it for a spectator monitor with a sign that says save questions until after the flight has ended .

The TV is Re-branded by Craig and identical to the Haier 7''. It is a highly coveted monitor among commercial photographers. Thanks for the Tip off it is much appreciated

Okay, Found some!

In California they are the "Digital Prism" (as linked above By DonJuan).
http://api.viglink.com/api/click?for...13246254353222

They are far from the quality of the Haier but still work nice.
In my box came wall and car charger. There is a 2400MAh lilo in the back as well.
quick test shows it will play through heavy static but does display "No Signal" in middle of screen when it gets moderate. When it looses all signal it recovers fast (really fast) when the signal is restored. I would say its usable for sure.

only real bummer is the price.
$29 becomes $37 after tax and hazardous waste disposal fee.

here are some pics!

Thanks Guy!!!
