    I have searched high and low and It seems to me like some of these Top Manufactures Like Flysight, Boscam, Lilliput, would make a 5.8ghz monitor with a built in DVD. Yeah I seen that Skyzone Jobbie with no power switch, Crappy dip switches for selecting channel, and a crappy battery compartment that doesn't fit a decent battery. I do however like that collapsible hood/screen protector. Has anyone heard anything coming out?

    Thanks ~Duke

    Quick question, why would you want a monitor with a built in DVD? To record the flight via the monitor? Just curious...

    Yes to record the telemetry data from the IOSD mini. I realize the recording is no where as good as my GoPro H3 Black but sometimes I would like to see the data of my flight. ;)

    Thanks ~Duke

    My Sharp Vision 7" has it. It works great and it auto records to my SD card so I don't have to remember to turn on DVR.

    CD's and DVD's, I remember them, those round shiny things. Like 8 track, C90's, VCRs all a bit retro-tech!

    I'm sure you can connect an external one. If that doesn't work, you can definitely connect a VCR since they have AV cables. You can finally watch 80s movies at the field in all their rustic analog glory. :)

    It will record on 8-Track, then you need to copy it to your BetaMax... ;)

    Ditto. I was trying to see if I could come up with a small solid state recorder that I could plug into my Black Pearl.

    I couldn't see how you connect up the Luminier DVR to your Black Pearl receiver. The other FPV monitor with a built in DVR sounds intriguing, if it receives the video well. It doesn't cost that much more than the Luminier, which is just a DVR.

    I bought my monitor a long time ago before there were models with built in FPV. I have a video out on the monitor and I connect the DVR to it. When I set mine up (P2NV) it was harder to find stuff and it all cost more. I could buy a P3 and have lots left over with all the money I have put into the P2. Now days, with a Monitor/DVR for $120 bucks... how can you go wrong? The market is much more friendly on these days.
