Upgrading my FPV transmitter - good source for purchase?


Hello, I have a FatShark Aviator system with a 100mW transmitter. I'd like to upgrade the transmitter to something more powerful and I picked out (with some help from my RCGroups.com friends) an ImmersionRC 600mW 5.8 GHz transmitter. It is compatible with my goggles, Bluebeam antennas, and affordable. I was going to get it from ReadMadeRC.com but they have been out of stock for quite some time. Is there another favorite place I can order a similar transmitter from? Thank you!

Anyone? I found a store in Turkey that sells a 200mW and 500mW transmitter but I didn't want to order from overseas if I didn't have to. Where can I get a more powerful 5.8 GHz transmitter besides ReadyMadeRC.com? FutureHobbies is also out of stock.

Popular products are going to have to be backordered. You will just have to wait on them. I often face this very problem stocking my antennas.

beware than fatshark rx's only works with immersion tx's.. i think they only come in 10mw, 100mw, (600mw most powerful one they have).... immersion frequency #'s ends with "0"'s where as the others ends with a "#"'s..

I have been trying to pay attention to the channels and/or whether they state FatShark compatibility, so thanks for the reminder. I'm working on my 2nd FPV vehicle and I wanted to install an upgraded transmitter from the get-go but I'll go with the 100mW for now. Still trying to figure out where I'm going to put it.

You could make your own using the 500mw airwave module

Thanks for the suggestion. I'm pretty adept at soldering but I'm not that good! That would be way out of my comfort zone.

Got a reply from ReadyMadeRC. It's going to be a few more weeks but more should be on the way. I will be keeping me eye out for them. My FPV EasyStar is almost done.
