    I have been flying a DSLRPros Sundance Cinema Kit with FPV monitor for about 6 months now. The videos I'm capturing is incredible with the GoPro Hero 3+ Black. The range I get with FPV exceeds the naked eye tracking of the craft. However, a few weeks ago, on a flight several hundred feet away, the video signal became very snowy and finally was lost.

    After reading all the various discussion on this forum about loss of video signal and not really finding anything that helped the issue, I started reading the manual (imagine that) for the monitor that came with the kit. Somehow, inadvertently, I bumped one of the buttons on the monitor that changed the channel up one and even though I had good FPV at close range, it faded quickly.

    With the DSLRPros FPV kits, make sure the monitor channel matches the channel displayed on the LED of the transmitter on the craft.

    Just thought I would pass along my experience for others who may be having signal loss issues.
