    Hi guys,

    I would like to know if you know of a good 10 inch monitor to complete my ground station. Of course this thing can't go blank/blue/black when signal gets lost.

    What are you using and can you recommend me one?

    Thank you in advanced!

    I use a ready made rc 8 inch. It works very well and they have a 10.1 inch version as well.

    I have both the ReadymadeRC 10" and 8". By FAR the 8" is brighter and clearer. I attempted to use the 10" for FPV, but now I'd like to get rid of it because I prefer the clarity of the 8".

    The monitor is certainly not the best out there but in my opinion is good enough for fpv but don't expect excellent picture quality. Size is excellent to compose images with ease. So far I like it but would like to try it with a better camera.

    Here is a picture of my set up.

    Thanks![​IMG]

    I've had poor experience with the ones from FoxTech. I initially purchased an 8" monitor from them last year, it arrived defective. They immediately sent me a replacement, which only lasted about 4 months of light use. I now only use ReadyMade RC monitors. Just my personal preference.

    Kristian the source for the FoxTech and Readymade's I think is the same factory. At least my Foxtech looks exactly the same as the Readymade one.

    Gary, you're probably right. I should've mentioned that in my prior response, but for now, I'll just keep believing that readymade's monitors are of higher quality. =) Besides, based on the responses I've received from ReadyMades customer service, their English is "more better"

    Gary I almost said the same thing, you are right, they are from the same manufacture.
