    Can anyone recommend a good video downlink/monitor for the M5 Spektrum combo?
    Something that's reasonable priced?

    Thanks!

    I'd recommend Small HD DP4 or 7. I use both the DP4 and DP7 high brightness and, while it sucks a fair amount of power, you can see the screen clearly in full sunlight -- which means that your viewing angle is very wide without a sunshield.

    Andy.

    Thanks Andy,
    I have the DP7 for the top of the Movi. I'm actually really interested to find a reasonable way to transmit the video to a monitor that the personal operating the remote control can view. Looking for a reasonably priced system that will allow me to do this.
    Thanks,
    Brent

    Brent, there are a lot of options for what we flying guys call “FPV” (first person video). As long as you don’t need HD, a complete system with a video converter, a SD transmitter, receiver and monitor only costs a few hundred dollars. But if you need real HD going to your remote person, you’re looking at a much bigger investment.

    Thanks a lot Steve. Would you be able to suggest one that would be a great option/complete package?

    Cheers!

    Chris,

    Keep in mind that they spec the range of the one you are looking at for 150 feet. If you are going to fly with it you may need something more powerful. If its just for ground Movi work and you will be relatively close together all the time this might get the job done for you.

    I have used this http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/983268-REG/nyrius_npcs550_aries_pro_wireless_hd.html. It is very similar to the Paralinx one but much cheaper. It doesn't have the same range though as the Paralinx. I ended up buying a Paralinx to use as well when I am working with multiple cameras. If budget is a concern and the range you are going to be from is short the Nyrius will do the job. Keep in mind you will need batteries for the device. I have used Anker batteries.
