I just received mine, could someone please confirm the following issues I'm having. When I turn it on, my Power and my RX lights to NOT light up, and all I get is a black screen on AV1 and AV2. Could someone confirm is this is right and my transmitter is not working, or if this is wrong and I need to RMA. Thanks
It is a trouble from the receiver . I received mine last August 6 and I have exactly the same problem, I made a video ( www.link ) that I send to HK to demonstrate the problem but I am still waiting a response from HK.
Hi Richard please provide with more details. Is your transmitter compatible with your receiver? Are you on the correct channel? Is your camera NTSC or PAL? I had the same problem with my Vector eagle tree on screen display. My Vector is suppose to be PAL so I used a PAL camera and connected it straight to the monitor which switches automaticaly between PAL and NTSC. After a week of struggle my mate lend me his FPV system. Then it worked but I discovered his fatshark system was NTSC and when I reconnected my PAL camera I connected it to my monitor and got my original problem but I noticed for the first time that the screen switched and displayed a video input signal NTSC and no video feed from camera but only the OSD. You might have the same issue
My transmitter is : SkyZone 5.8G 500mW 8 Channel AV Transmitter FPV and compatible witch my receiver. I use a Gopro Hero3 NTSC et the chanel is OK but i do not have any image from my camera. The screen show AV2 or AV1 or the OSD. According to the video i have saw on YOUTUBE I am sure The problem come the receiver.
Have you tried another camera yet? I have seen multiple videos where people are having issues with specifically GoPro3 and FPV transmitters. Also check that your GoPro 3 output is 640x400. Also I think from reading a bit more the video from GoPro might be digital and not standard RC anologue but only a thought. Please check with another camera first.
Hi Rodion and Theunsie
HK asked me to return the item for inspection because the video that I, did not clearly shows the problem to demonstrate that it is faulty. So I'll Return the item in HK which will cost me more than 25 Canadian dollars. I do not want a new item but a refund. Thank you for your interest on this issue
and when I have news from HK, I will contact you.
That is a big shame mate. I personally think you will be better of buying a transmitter and LCD screen separately. I would say the new HD 7" OLED displays will keep you going for a long time when they bring the prices down on HD tx and rx. I was going to buy this but after all the negative comments on this I investigated for a week on the skyzone 5.8gh goggles. HobbyKing now sells the V2 which I believe is a uge improvement on the V1 in video quality. If I don't like them I will use them as a RX for my 7"Field monitor with my Eagle Tree Vector OSD. Hope you find luck soon it can be frustrating I know, I have two touch screen chargers I can't send back due to the postage cost so I will just keep them and hope I can help some one else repair there's.
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.
