5.8Ghz 200mW transmitter. This system is Good for up to 500m flying with the supplied antenna. An optional directional antenna can extend range to 1km+. This unit a Includes built-in microphone. The receiver unit has additional AV outputs for video recording while using FPV goggles.
** Many fake, poor quality & untested FPV products are currently entering the market. Don’t get caught out with poor quality substitutes, SkyZone FPV equipment is tried and true and has been tested and developed by FPV pilots for FPV pilots.
the output voltage is what you put to work this TX.
You can put 2s (seems to work better that with 3S ???) you will get 2S at output.
You put 3S to the TX, you et 3S at the output.
So to work with a camera under 5V such as the FAT-SHARK that I Got, you must use an UBEC.
This is not very easy, this is why I think it is better to use a 12V camera.
Bought this product.
Look at the original doc. Stupifying ! It shows the wiring diagram with positive and negative in one position at the 1st page, but the picture shows the contrary.
At the second page, the wiring diagram is the contrary of the 1st page.
Is this serious ?
better: if you find the good version of the synchro RX/TX switch position with the help of the docs, you are lucky !
Better pay more and buy the original product !
What's the output voltage of the transmitter? (For input I can use a 3s lipo, how many amps do you recommend, a 610 mah, how long will it take to empty this battery?)
My keychain cam requires 5 volt input, nothing more so....
Thanks in advance
ok so i have the exact same setup as akross2 below, the cheap quannum goggles and the receiver i have tied together and powered off a 2s battery with the 4 leaf clover, and the tx is powered off a 3s with the 3 clover, the clovers are the 5.8 GHz Circular Polarized Antenna RP-SMA (Transmitter and Receiver), and on testing on flat ground with the tx at head height i got roughly 300m before things starting to get too rough to fly, i went double the distance and got no pic at all, is it because like some people have said, these brass collars are no good and i should get the fat shark rp sma piroet's?? or is it because i have powered the rx on 2s and not 3 like someone has said and that it will help? but someone also said a 3s fully charged would blow the rx? i played with all the channels and yes some better than others and some do ghost at short range making you think its correct, then you have to sit and check again, and no i have never powered on with the clover leafs off, it was fun at short range on my quad but didnt want to risk fixed wing as it would have gotten away from me quicker and risk picture break up, can some one please advise or help in any way, thanks.
one other thing just come to mind, i have bent the tx clover in a 90 degree angle so it points up and not flat, i have seen others do this and it felt tolerable and right when i did it, i didnt know at the time you could get a 90 degree jack collar but i doubt this is the problem as it does flex but just in case
i just made my clover leaf and spw..i reach 1km.with solid vid..now i build the helical antenna i hope i can reach 3km of it..the $12 cl/skw sell from>>>>..is not good...my home made antenna outperforms them.
2 thumbs up!
Very good quality transmitter and receiver.
I using this kit to fly FPV with an octocopter around 500 meter with stock antenna.
This is the best downlink kit i ever bought from HK.
The 5.8ghz not interfere on my 2.4ghz tramsmiter or my 900mhz telemetry link.

You get big problems with the german ZOLL. The collekt your packet and destroy the content. So I can´t make any rating.
Since January 2012 the Laws has benn intensified.
Any Product without the "CE" will been destrojed by the german ZOLL!

This is a very good TX-RX combo. They work even with 2S and in fact it is better for the RX because less voltage means less heat. The transmitter has a switching power supply and it doesn't become hot. The RF module has an heat sink which can be removed because it works very well without it. The best result in power output are on the lower frequencies, above 5800mHz, so you should check the frequency channel it was set on. I reached 18,7 km with this combo but with some good antennas. Just search on youtube 5,8ghz 200mw 18km flight record or check up the Hobby King video files for this video set.
this worked wonderfully well. went installed on a bixler with eflite park 450. went out of sight and back no proble,s... a little fuzz when over head but that is the nature of the stock antenna. gonna make the IBcarzy antennas .. i am using futaba 72 mhz super 7. 220 3s and 800 mah vtx battery with the foxtec goggles here.

Works very well but you will need a cloverleaf patch antenna for long range. The Tx needs a 3s battery and the Rx only needs a 2s. The Rx will work on a 3s but gets very hot not sure if using a 2s will cause problems with range but it did work. I have only done ground tests and will give an update as I move ahead.
I was able to cut the cam from an old x10 camera. I connected the wires and it worked perfectly. The good thing about x10 cams is that they have a mic and comes with a small housing (I cut the wire that connects the x10 cam to the 2.4g Tx and added a servo connector). The bad thing about x10 cams is that the image quality is not as good as the cam from HK (My x10 cam is about 10 years old) I plan to use the x10 cam for my sons RC car.
The unit is small and light and works very well. Each video out port work without issue so if you are looking to get into FPV this would not be a bad choice. 900mhz is very crowded and you may be unhappy with the results. Also with a cloverleaf patch antenna you can get good range and the size of this antenna is very small compared to 900mhz. Also if you have the skills you can make your own cloverleaf patch antenna.
Note: If you use the HK cam check your wires!!! I found that my red wire was connected to my “vout” and my white wire was connected to the “ ”.
