Well, hmmmm. That's the 801 (the one I just ordered) but I've read of a 701 and an 801 that only has 1 band....none of this info is of known accuracy....My head is spinning with channels, freqs and specs at the moment...

I was just making sure that it (the BP RC801) will work with the AVL58....and it looks like it does and will...but, I thought the same about the Lilliput 664 (with matching specs to the AVL58) and it appears to have an "issue" that Lilliput is "working on"...

..


I have the AVL58 and the 801. Works great! The Black Pearl has 32 selectable channels. The Lilliput I think only has 9, but there are different versions of that monitor with different channels. Just gotta know which channels your Tx has then pick the right Lilliput.



Howdy, Flyer!

Fanstastic info on the BP! But.....regarding the Lilliput, Lilliput USA says they are having some "issues" with the receiver that is built into the 664. It isn't tuning to the freqs it is supposed to apparently. I have no idea if this is recent, or a long-time issue with them. I do know that mine never seemed to be on channel quite right even though it was supposed to be. Others have reported the same issue....stay tuned! (ouch. Couldn't resist that one...)

Cheers for all the replies, very interesting.

I'm toying with these two ideas:

This sounds like a pretty good setup to me. I'm aware of all the issues people are having with the Black Pearl / ImmersionRC 600mW combo so I'll avoid that.

The other option:

- ImmersionRC Duo5800
- Vonista 8" FPV Screen
- ImmersionRC Powerbox Ground Station Distribution System
- ImmersionRC 5.8GHz Long Range 600mW A/V Transmitter
- IBCrazy 5-Turn Helical
- Fatshark Spironet
- Suitable power supply for the Distribution System
- iOSD mini

This option is way more expensive and bulky, but I think it would provide rock solid performance judging by this footage of a Black Widow copter with a 25mW 5.8G ImmersionRC transmitter, ImmersionRC Duo5800 v3 diversity receiver, and CL/SPW and 4-turn helix antennas: http://youtu.be/04vQRTP61LE

Not sure if I'm up for all that bulk. I'm not planning on long range flying really, more keen to get good performance within 500m or so. Of course there's a good chance my mind will probably change the day after I get setup for FPV ; )
