    Guys,

    Purchased Fatshark Teleporter V4 SPMVS1100 goggles and didn't realise they didn't come with a charger.

    What charger do I need?

    Thanks.

    Nope all I got from the sellers website is:

    •QVGA 320 x 240 LCD displays
    •5.8GHz wireless receiver
    •Spironet RHCP antenna
    •Digital head tracking for Spektrum FPV cameras
    •Trainer link head tracking for gimbal controlled cameras
    •760mAh 7.4V LiPo battery with charger
    •Lens cloth

    In fact it does say charger?

    Emailed the company and so far not received a single form of contact regarding the missing supply.

    Does not invoke confidence in Kings Lyne Model Shop to be honest.

    Been reading around sites and they all say "with charger" but they all just show a lead with banana clips and not a charger as such.

    I received the following.

    Found out that it says on the box............ "Requires: 2S Li-Po Battery Charger".

    Seller has edited their website removing the charger bit but is willing to pay for a charger as a goodwill gesture.

    The sellers/Makers of these goggles need to change the wording ASAP as its misleading.

    If you have a Phantom v1, use it's charger with the banana clips that were included with your goggles. There is a port for 2S on the side of the charger.

    *edit - forgot to mention that my Fatsharks never came with a charger either (I assume most of them don't).

    it is probably meant to say charge lead rather than charger and got lost in translation.

    Yeh sounds like it but is confusing to newbies.

    Plus didn't have a charger.
