    I just got a kit from B&H that came with a Delvcam 7" FPV monitor with a built in 5.8ghz receiver (link: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1 ... eless.html) and I have two questions.

    First, I can't seem to get rid of the black lines in the video feed. More of a letterboxing type effect. I change the zoom but there's letterboxing either on the top or the sides. I can't get the video feed to go full screen from the GoPro. The iOSD information displays on the screen properly. I've tried changing resolution on the gopro as well, but it's always the same.

    Second, it came with the mushroom type antennas but I only get about 100 meters before the video signal gets all glitchy. The B&H product page (link: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/9 ... o_kit.html) says Up to 3937' Line of Sight Range. I'm getting less than 1/10th of that range. Any ideas on what I can do to remedy that?
