    Purchased an FPV monitor with receiver built in and a 200mw transmitter. Frequencies did not match so I returned the transmitter. Ordered a transmitter and receiver bundle. Wired up the transmitter and was able to get a picture on the monitor but only for a short range, 50 feet max. Tried all channel combinations. Wired up the receiver that came with the transmitter. It only worked when the transmitter was on channel 1 and the receiver on channel 8, WTF? Again the reception was poor except when very close.
    Does anyone make an FPV system that actually works as advertised out of the box??
