Camera: http://hobbywireless.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=578 $40

Transmitter: http://hobbywireless.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=557 $40

Receiver: http://hobbywireless.com/index.php?m...roducts_id=758 $65

$155 so far. You have cam, TX, and RX. Now just find a cheap LCD screen somewhere.

OR, use the same cam - but with this TX and RX set for $80. So you're around $130 without a LCD then.

Call horizonhobby or just fill out their service request form describing the problem and send in the radio. I bet they'll fix it for free or very little money. They replaced both gimbals on my dx8 for free!
