Review of AKK A1 - 4g Mini 5.8Ghz 40CH 25mW FPV 600TVL FPV Micro AIO System


Review of AKK A1 Mini 5.8Ghz 40CH 25mW Transmitter Raceband 600TVL Micro AIO Camera with Clover Antenna for FPV Camera System & DVR footage

Oh my, this was unbelievable, today (27.3.) came packet that was sent 24.3. from AKK (HONG KONG) to me (Croatia). Was I surprised, this is my personal record, I mean not my, rather AKKs and DHLs, but, nevertheless, amazing.


In the bigger packet, well protected with lot of foam padding, were two smaller packets, one of them is main actor of this review - A1 AIO FPV System, other box review will come soon...


Here is AKKs A1 - super light (4g) AIO 600TVL camera/VTX combo for FPV which has interesting function that enables user to easy switch CHs & turn on/off VTX power via button. 600TVL video signal should provide good quality video.

Weight of only 4g




FPV cam/vtx combo is nicely packed, and protected with thick layer of foam.
Few unboxing shots:










Antenna looks really nice, and soldering job is nicely done. All el. components sit nicely and parallel. Lens is mounted to the board wit some kind of glue, think its epoxy. That is nice because it stops dust and moisture to enter optical system but drawback is that you cant make any focus adjustments yourself and you depend of how well the guy in factory did focusing job.


40CH channel list (5 bands with Raceband)





PROS:
  • low weight, 4g only
  • 40CH channels(5 bands with Raceband)
  • power output on/off via button
  • quality silicone power cable with adapter
  • 600tvl should provide good quality picture
  • cloverleaf antenna for quality transmission of video signal
  • super easy selection of channels/bands/TX power on-off via button (channel/band/TX power on-off selection is saved and used after later powering)
  • when powered, LED Display will circle displaying channel/band/TX power on-off status
  • clear big LED Digital Display


CONS:
  • No PAL video system - my DVR doesn't like NTSC, but that's only DVR, picture in FPV glasses is perfect



SPECS:





What do I get in the kit?

1 X A1 AIO FPV Camera

1 X Cable

1 X User Manual

AKK A1 - 4g Mini 5.8Ghz 40CH 25mW FPV 600TVL FPV Micro AIO System (1 min 31 sec)




I am using:

Skyzone FPV googles - https://goo.gl/zXK8Zg
HMDVR Mini DVR - https://goo.gl/xOtjm0
Skyzone 5.8GHz 4 Leaf FPV RX Antenna - https://goo.gl/iw7m0i
FrSky Taranis Q X7 2.4GHz 16CH Transmitter - http://goo.gl/iMrQu6




Conclusion: Highly Recommend


Great price/performance value and ease of use because its AIO combo FPVcam/VTX format, button operation and LED digital display.

Because of its small weight&dimensions its versatility in use is enormous, from micro quads to boats, planes, cars etc.



Use case:
because of its combo format and that it requires only power source (3.2-5V), you can use one AKKs A1 combo on yours many RC items. For example, you take one small 1S lipo or you prepare 5V power out from BEC on your rc boat, your rc car, your rc plane, your micro quad, yours rc whatever and buy yourself one A1 and move it around when you need it. And in one moment all yours RC items have possibility to be FPV controlled. Nice!
