AKK X1 40CH 25mW/200mW/600mW Switchable FPV Transmitter


A great and affordable video transmitter!
This is not the cheapest VTX on the market, but so far it's the best transmitter I've seen in sub-25$ range.

Description:

Transmitter came in a nice box with AKK logo, well packed and with good manual. After I opened a box I instantly knew it's going to be a quality product - for several reasons:
  1. It comes with silicone wiring! No other VTX I had in my hands comes with silicone wires!
  2. Connector on the VTX is lockable. I've also never seen lockable (and more expensive) connector on other VTXes.
  3. Stock antenna comes with metal threading - not the cheapest antenna despite the fact and nobody ever flies with stock antennas.

Description:

Transmitter comes with standard RP-SMA connector which can easily be desoldered and replaced with a pigtail if necessary. Size is pretty much standard so you won't have any trouble fitting it to your quad. X1 transmitter accepts any voltage in range 7-24V meaning you can fit it to almost any setup up to 5S.

Operating impressions:
I've put this VTX on my miniquad and flew a little on my flying field. This VTX performed flawlessly. Extremely easy to use, display is bright and controls are easy. Option to switch power is great - I get exceptional range on 600mw (loose control earlier than video). 200mw and 25mw are suitable for flying with friends without causing any interference.

One exceptional thing about this VTX is quality of video. Power filtering is so good that I can power it from the battery directly without an LC-filter and still get crystal clear video without any interference even at full throttle. This is exceptional for a VTX with this price-tag.

Pros:
Hi quality product
Best price/value ratio of all VTX I've seen
Easy controls - bright display, large button

Cons:
Don't have 5V BEC to power the camera
