    Hey guys, anyone use the fatshark predator fpv? I used it stock and it flickered a little, wasn't bad, but I want it to have clear video the whole time.

    So I bought the immersion 600mW TX + spironet antennas thinking it would always be clear video, but still flickering.

    Any variables that can affect the video?
    Anything else I can do?

    Thanks.

    Sounds like your ground wire might be wrong. Are you using a Hero3 with usb cable?

    A little flicker here and there is normal and expected on non-digital FPV systems. However, flying LOS, correct antenna positioning, and diminishing flying straight above yourself should minimize the "flickering" to a minimum. I own the same setup, (V2) and it works great, but interference, and a whole myriad of other variables make it flicker here and there.
