    I ordered my Phantom 2 with Zenmuse (2D) and iOSD mini for FPV. I've had it for a few months now but have never used the awful Tote Vision 4" monitor for FPV.

    I'd like to get one monitor that will be useful for both my Panasonic GH4 and for the Phantom. (not at the same time, necessarily!)

    Is this a viable option? I have little experience with the FPV stuff, so i'm not sure what I'm looking for.

    Thank you!

    Yes - it's basically an HD field monitor with a radio receiver, so it also has an HDMI input, and will display the output from any HDMI-capable camera such as the GH4.

    Awesome! Though I'm still slightly confused about the tx/rx channel compatibility.

    Since I have the DJI AVL58 tx on board the Phantom,
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/9 ... o_kit.html
    it says it operates with:Frequency Band 5.8 GHz FM Broadband
    Frequency Range CH1: 5705 MHz
    CH2: 5685 MHz
    CH3: 5665 MHz
    CH4: 5645 MHz
    CH5: 5885 MHz
    CH6: 5905 MHz
    CH7: 5925 MHz
    CH8: 5945 MHz

    While the Lilliput 664 shows:
    Fat Shark 5.8GHz Receiver (BUILT IN) Channel Frequency
    CH1 5740 --- MHz CH2 5760 --- MHz
    CH3 5780 --- MHz CH4 5800 --- MHz
    CH5 5820 --- MHz CH6 5840 --- MHz CH7 5860 --- MHz

    Are these compatible? Forgive my ignorance, I've just had zero experience with this stuff. (shame)

    Thanks!
