Can anyone link match this receiver for the cheapest transmitter that work? I got an SJ4000 camera want to hook up with a transmitter with this receiver.
I received this monitor last week and its great for the value. The built in diversity works great and the screen is easily visible in bright sun light with the hood attached. However, it does blue screen... but only when there is absolutely no signal for about 2 seconds. So far I haven't had it blue screen whilst flying and I have had almost full signal loss. Another weird thing is that it blue screens if the fpv camera isn't plugged into the vtx, which I thought was a little odd. Just to let you know, it uses normal SMA connectors for the antennas, not RP-SMA!!! For some reason it won't mount on my tripod due to it having a slightly different thread (my tripod fits every camera I own), which is a bit of a pain to fit another threaded bolt to my tripod. All in all, I can't complain about this monitor as I am using it all the time due to it's compact size and portability. I just attach it to a tripod with a 2s 5000mah lipo and fly!

it is ok for the value. i like more for that price. plus, small convenient, great range, easy to see. cons, tripod threadedbad, sound broken, cant adjust volume.
I have a few flights on this monitor now and am very happy with its performance. Clear bright image and the diversity is doing its job. I purchased a transmitter mount from another site and now instead of lugging around a tripod and base station case and setting it up I just turn this on and go flying. I wear glasses and also like to look up from time to time so this was a better option for me than the fatsharks. I should mention that I did have to open it up to resolder the diversity indicator leds with were not quite working 100pcnt. The threads in the mounting hole were a bit rough as well but that's also an easy fix. This monitor goes to static on a poor signal and a blue screen after a few seconds for a total loss of signal.
This is something I have looking at for a while. They were sold out for a while and I was really on the fence with goggles. Turns out the goggles came available at the same time as this unit and I opted for diversity.
The fatshark goggles are great but I'm going to wait until the new ones release in July with wide! 45 degree FOV. that would make it worth it. And maybe they will strip them down to be just slave goggles that I could plug into my diversity setup once I get or make cp antennas.

Pros: Cheap, comes with a hood. Works well when things actually work.
Cons: Reliability. The power connector is very average and the device loses power when the cord wiggles around. I am contemplating removing the jack and just soldering some wire direct. Also, one of the screw heads was stripped from factory, making it impossible to fully open. The tripod jack is completely useless as the threads are almost non existent. The sun hood is great, however the power jack and the hole in the hood do not align, therefore I had to hack mine up a bit!
Overall: Good, but just a few *simple* things could make this product perfect.
