Ready Made RC STRIX-5812 7-Inch Monitor
A clear view for racing or photography
;is is the perfect monitor for the pilot who likes to
fly FPV and any type of drone for photography. For
the photographer/cinematographer, an HDMI input
allows video feed from many di;erent wireless
transmitter/receiver combos. In addition, there
is an incorporated 5.8GHz wireless receiver with
diversity that does a good job of picking up
the video signal from your quad transmitter.
A search function makes it easy to find the
channel the quad is transmitting from and locks
that in for a clear signal.
All the navigation buttons are at the
bottom, and a charging status light is
on the front. ;e monitor comes with a
charger, a power AC adapter, and a large
1900mAh/7.4V lithium battery. ;e
built-in sunshade and 1024x600 bright
screen make it easy to use in the bright
sun, and stress-free for flying or focusing
and framing when shooting photos or
videos. I found this monitor easy to use
in the field; the bright screen was sharp
and made flying in and out of the trees
a breeze. ;e diversity keeps the signal
locked on, and when I did experience static, it was
low and for a brief amount of time. Included in the package
is a power supply, and I find myself using this monitor all the time in the
studio when shooting videos. It has a 1/4-20 threaded tripod mount on the bottom for
mounting on a tripod or stand when using it at a race or on location. Input voltage can be
from 7V to 25V, and this wide latitude of operating voltage allows for the use of battery
packs that many pilots will already have on hand.—John Reid
