    I have a set of ImmersionRC 5.8GHz Circular Polarized Spironet V2 Antenna. One Spironet on the the Immersion 600 Vtx and the other on the Black Pearl. The second antenna on the Black Pearl is a Cheap Drones 5.8GHz Clover-Leaf Antenna.

    Using this set up it’s not unusual for the image on the Black Pearl to briefly blink out. However today the image completely fell apart with static, failed colors and blinking out.

    What might be the cause and how can the image be improved? Improved at modest expense.

    This is a video recorded via a DVR attached to the diversity video out of the Black Pearl. Unfortunately, it’s filled with compression artifacts too.

    BP and immersionRC/fatshark dont match very well, i do people tend to get ImmersionRC/fatshark gear without using their receivers?

    The immersionRC 600mw tx will only work properly with fartshark googles or immersionrc receivers, or you can use a Boscam transmitter that will work fine with the LCD.

    400mw tx is more than enough for 1km+ range.
