Just opened this fpv transmitter https://www.akktek.com/akk-x2.html and it will be going on a bigger quad or a plane sometime soon once I figure out how to use it and connect it all up to beta flight and a camera etc,
It has uart control so it can be controlled via betaflight with osd to switch channels and set power output levels ( has 25mw 200mw 500mw and 800mw )and also has a mode where the power is only very weak so not to interfere with other flyers whilst setting up.

For now I just tested the setup of power output and channel frequency and that was easy with one button.
Here are a few pics of the unboxing , everything was well packed and looks top quality as usual from akkteck.

I am really happy with this charger and wanted to share why I think it's the best option for charging single cell lipos right now.
First of all some pictures and a link to my first video review and also a short video demo of it whilst it is charging so you can see the display and see how it works.

Here is my review on the boldclash f02h camera from boldclash.( Work in progress )
Plus a preview of my next review which will be a high end 1s lipo charger for whoop batteries and any other 1s batteries.
I'll start with some pictures and a couple of video showing it's looks and performance both of which are pretty nice!

I ordered a bunch of stuff from akk when they had another special offer on which they seem to be doing a lot!
All arrived perfectly boxed well and safe.
First up is the x1p vtx which I will be putting on my planes and bigger quads as it has selectable power outputs of 25mw 200mw and 600mw so covers all my needs from small park flying quads to longer range glider ..
