    I've started collecting parts for fpv and ordered up a 5.8g tx/rx combo, and was looking at the feelworld 7" monitor on ebay for $99.
    Has anybody used one of these?

    The only downside I see is not having a way to power it in the field. I could make or get an adapter cord probably, but it'd be nice to just be able to plug it into a 3s.
    Any other recommendations on a fairly cheap monitor ready to run? I'll be mostly using it to line up still shots.

    You're far better off spending the money on a Flysight Black Pearl that has the receiver built in. It saves messing about trying to power a receiver and the monitor.

    Just trying to keep this hobby semi-cheap. :lol:
    I ended up ordering this seetec combo, it'll be nice having the second charger too.

    All in all I have just over $200 into the setup and still need to get antennas.
    This is the rx/tx I got.

    And hoping this is all I'll need to connect the mobius to the tx.

    For anyone still looking at the Feelworld, they do have a model with batterypack, but I haven't found a us seller...

    In my experience, with this hobby the old adage of "buy cheap, buy twice" is very relevant.
