    I've poured over these forums to learn all I can about FPV and am trying to figure out the differences between the following transmitters:

    Boscam TS832 600mw (32 channels)
    immersionRC 5.8GHz 600mW Tx
    FlySight 5.8GHz 400mW audio video transmitter. 32 CH , Microphone on-board


    Some places seem to indicate that the 32 channels is pointless and that the 8 some devices offer is fine. I'm looking at the Black Pearl receiver (not sure about the 32 ch or the 8 channel one).

    Any hints on what I should get? I'm leaning towards the immersionRC and the 8 channel receiver.

    My advice is stay away from immersionRC/Fatshark if you will not use their google or receiver, because you will not get a good range or image with the immersionRC and Black Pearl.

    Save your money and get this:

    Boscam TS353 400mw: http://j.mp/1gJ6t7s

    Boscam 7" RX-LCD5802 5.8GHz Diversity Receiver: http://j.mp/1lZuham
    LCD Battery Charger: http://j.mp/1h3CreQ

    Range you can get is 2km+... This 400mw tx can output 500mw in CH4, use that with good antennas and you will get a good range.

    Thanks for the quick reply. Why the 400mw instead of the Boscam 600 mw? Also what antennas do you recommend?

    Also, the charger you linked to has a picture with a non-US plug on it. Do you know if there is a US version or do I need to find the right adapter?

    I personally really like my setup with DJI AVL58 and the Boscam 7 inch 32 receiver. Works really well and the AVL58 was plug and play using DJI's HUB, the Hub you can get for 12 bucks. No splicing or soldering

    Because the best tx boscam made was the ts351 and TS353, they both have a good price and overpowered, that 600mw tx will output 400mw, search on the internet, someone tested it...

    Conclusion, you will pay more in that 600mw tx and get less that the 400mw.

    Thanks, GhostMaster! I'll go the Boscam route. I won't pull the plug until the H3-3D is available as I can't do FPV well without a gimbal.

    So is it the case that the AVL-58 has a higher output in one of the channels too?

    What range do you get with that setup?

    In my opinion the TS353 400mw is a great transmitter, you dont need the 1000mw output power and weight of the AVL58, the TS353 can go above 2km easy, its a passive and low weight transmitter and sucks less power from the battery.

    I'm really ragging on my AVL58 and it really isn't that bad?

    Dji AVL58 is not bad, it works very well, but its a huge tx, not light, expensive and power ungry.

    The issue from what I understand is the range of frequency that is the biggest issue and the interference that you can get in your area. I appreciate all this info. It seems there's so much involved including antenna placement and antenna type.

    The Immersion works fine with the Black Pearl That is what I use

    It is much smaller and lighter than the AVl58 also.
