Review of AKK 600mW FPV VTX & 600TVL 2.8MM HQ Picture Sony CCD Camera COMBO KC02


Review of AKK 600mW FPV VTX & 600TVL 2.8MM HQ Picture Sony CCD Camera COMBO KC02


Oh my, this was unbelievable, on 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, in one of them was A1 AIO FPV System (My review here), and in the other , main actor of this review:
AKK 600mW FPV Transmitter with 600TVL 2.8MM 120 Degree High Picture Quality Sony CCD Camera for FPV Multicopter KC02





Don't know how many breed of HS1177 are there in the wild, but I have few of them. From left to right:



1. (original) HS1177 from SurveilZone.com

2. Turnigy HS1177 from Hobbyking


3. HS1177 clone from Banggood
& DVR of that build & Build Log

4. AKK 600mW FPV Transmitter with 600TVL 2.8MM 120 Degree High Picture Quality Sony CCD Camera for FPV Multicopter KC02 Combo

DWDR
Price
Great picture quality of FPV cam and great VTX range
5V out on VTX


CONS:
none


Conclusion:
I really can only highly recommended AKK in cases that you need quality FPV products at great price or in case that you, in a hurry, need parts to replace broken ones on your FPV craft, so you need them to be delivered quickly.






In gallery are screenshots of my settings for maiden flight.

Most important is to turn on DWDR like this



because default setting is OFF, and thats not good for FPV


TODO:
  • Build Log
  • DVR flight footage

I didn't use this FPV combo as a whole because VTX couldn't fit in my Realacc X210 frame, so I used FPV cam in Realacc x210 build.

Details and DVR footage are in this thread:

Great, post your build and flight videos here once you are done.

You wont be disappointed with any AKK product. I have done few reviews AKK products and they are great performance/price products and just work.
