This is my humble review of the Eachine ET526 VTX transmitter
http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-ET52...ampaign=montis

This VTX has 4 power levels: 0 mW – 25 mW – 200mW – 600mW, 5 bands: A – B– C – D – E, 40 channels total.
Weight is 8.5 grams. This is slightly more than typical VTX weights and this is mainly because of the heat sink attached. Size is almost the same as other similar VTX‘es:



First interesting feature is Transmitting Power OFF on startup. Every time you power this VTX, it starts with TX power OFF (TX led is dim). You have to double click upper button after you power up the VTX to turn video transmission on.
Second interesting feature is on-board microphone, which can be turned ON and OFF
Changing of the channels and bands is done with lower button pressing. Short press of the button to change channel, longer press (2sec) for changing band and long press (5sec) for on-board microphone On/Off.
Double click of the upper button turns the video transmitting on. Longer press (3sec) changes power level selection 25 – 200 – 600 mW.
Cable is 6-pin JST-SH 1.25mm one. Cable has a 3-pin camera connector on another end of the cable, also female servo connector for Power in (7-24V) and female servo connector for PWM input. Camera connector compatible with Eachine 1000TVL CCD camera.
Antenna connector is SMA type. This is good for VAS/Fatshark users as their antennas have SMA connectors. Others can use SMA->RP-SMA type changing adapter (like this one: ...Continue Reading

I have bench tested TX526, which I received from Banggood. Link to this video transmiter:
http://www.banggood.com/Eachine-ET52...ampaign=montis

This VTX has 4 power levels: 0 mW – 25 mW – 200mW – 600mW, 5 bands: A – b – E – F – r, 40 Channels total.
Weight is 7.1grams, exactly the same as TX5828. Size is almost the same as other similar VTX‘es:



Changing of the settings can be easily done with just one button. Short press of the button to change channel, longer press (2sec) for changing band and long press (5sec) for power level selection.

It has RP-SMA antenna plug, despite some misleading information on the user manual leaflet.

Cable is 5-pin JST-SH 1.0mm one. The same cable and pinout fits TX5828 transmitter.
