    Hi all. I'm looking for a mounting bracket to mount my Black Pearl monitor to my Futaba T8FGS. What do y'all use?

    I use exactly the same. Mine didn't come with such a great view though.

    It's the Lilliput 664w. It's not cheap but it kicks butt. 720p. Super bright. HDMI. Doesn't bluescreen. I use it as a field monitor as well.

    I bounce back and forth from this bracket from Amazon (see pic) and a tripod. With the Monitor and smaller DVR monitor it starts getting a little heavy and bulky holding Futaba.

    Just got this monitor mount. Trying to figure out how to install it with my T8FGS and BP monitor. Do you have any more pictures of your installation? I'm wondering how you have it mounted to the Tx handle. I can't see it from this angle.
