Boscam 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.
** Many fake, poor quality & untested FPV products are currently entering the market. Don’t get caught out with poor quality substitutes, Boscam FPV equipment is tried and true and has been tested and developed by FPV pilots for FPV pilots.
I run it of an 3s 500mah. This reciever draws around 150mah so it will run for about three hours on that battery. But do not try 4s. You could do an adapter on your balance lead so it only goes up to three cells. but do not connect all the 4 cells. depends on the motor of course but 24 inches sounds a bit to much. i would probably go for around an 10x4.5 propeller and find an motor based on that prop. Please credit my answer :)
I got this transmitter about 3 months ago. When I first plugged it in, it immediately smoked and burned out. I check the voltage at the line and this was not the problem. I contacted HK and sent pics, and they are replacing it. I haven't yet gotten the replacement, its been about 12 weeks but still waiting. When I get the new one, I'll re-post.
HK is only seller?
good luck buy . com (remove spaces)
and $2 less price and plus free shipping...
3 thumbs up!
Be very careful if using with the GOPRO. First of all the main supply is incorrect, red is negative and vice versa. When connecting the gopro I found that ground was outputting 12v which subsequently blew the 'video out' from the GOPRO, not impressed. Again, make sure of polarities before connecting anything. Not sure if this applies to all units or if I was just unlucky. I now have a GOPRO which I cannot use for FPV.

Very good little unit, when paired up with a blue beam antenna set (cloverleaf skew planar) i get 2000 feet crystal clear. Haven't gone further yet.

I've used mine once only so far and flew exactly 1.7km far using Circular Wireless skew planer wheel antennas. I didn't even bother to try the standard omni antennas. I was impressed with the range.
Some documentation on how to use audio would be nice to have since it has 2 audio input connections and a microphone. I'm using an external mic connected to both input audio wires at the same time. I don't know if the transmitter switches the internal microphone off based on some conditions or not.
