    Looking for a cheap digital DVR for my 7" monitor. Any recommendations?

    I have a cheap one I use with my black pearl. Keep in mind this isn't hd video just vga. I use this only so I review it with iosd data in case something goes odd with my flight. All you need is video out from your monitor. If you have dc power out from your monitor then you won't need a battery for it.
    I attached this to the bottom of my phantom controler

    it comes with broken English instructions but you can figure it out. Mine is set to start recording when I power it up when I start my flight

    Ohary, I'm looking for the same thing. The Boscam LCD does not have a dc power out. Have you come up with a solution?

    I got this one a couple of weeks ago.
    It worked for 1 flight. Next time I switched it on there was some nasty smelling smoke coming from it..
    I used a standard 2200 Lipo to power it. I opened it up to see what was wrong and noticed a completely burned out chip. Contacted the seller but he never responded.

    The video quality of the one flight I recorded was not very good but useable. Choppy, low frame rate.
    But I won't buy crap like this anymore. For roughly 2.5 times that money you get a HD Diversity screen 32Channel with HD DVR and built in Lipo (no wires at all). I just ordered that one. Even if you already have a screen, it makes a great backup as well.

    On RC Groups they consider this one of the FPV items that is a must to buy.
