AKK KC02 600mW FPV Transmitter : Good for the money.

Price quality just like i like it. Thanks will post review on performance in next couple days. It’s crazy how you get a wanted review yet in most cases you just sent the order in and there stands starring you down a review anyways so far so good the field will bring it to light if good or bad to be continued.

I’ve had this vtx for about a year and probably only have around 20 flights with it. Up until today i’ve been very happy with. Today, while i was flying it just completely cut out. Luckily, i was just flying around in an open field and was easily able to land by line of sight. When i landed the vtx was significantly warmer than it usually gets. I checked all my solder joints and they were still good so i’m assuming one of the components for the vtx kicked the bucket. Overall, i still like these vtxs and would recommend them for a budget conscious quad build.

For a budget friendly fpv camera and transmitter, this works great. We started using this on our first build which was a f5 50 hexa copter and through the many different builds that we have made, this camera and transmitter has followed to everyone including the 250 mm build we just completed and are still very pleased with it. I would recommend this to anyone on a budget.

The wiring harness loves to break wires right near the connection so you cannot solder them back together. When building a drone be very gentle with the wires. I have broken the positive wire to the vtx and now i have to search all over the internet to find a replacement wiring harness.

I obtained it since it really is plug-and-enjoy with runcam split. Difficult to obtain 5 volt high-power transmitters regionally. . Cannot defeat the price tag and if it breaks just buy another just one and get itin 2days.

Seems to perform good, video tx get a very little incredibly hot.

  • A ready to fly vtx+cam fpv system. High Picture Quality NTSC CCD Camera.Easy to use 2 buttons and 2 LED display to change channels and frequencies.
  • Low power consumption most affordable fpv system, suitable for all quadcopter and drones.

Bought this process just after preusing other individuals and looking through reviews. I just related the vtx and camera and fabricated ability/ground sales opportunities with bullet connectors as i intend to faucet into the ability distribution harness on my elev-eight quadcopter. No difficulty with first hook up and test, and it was easy to install on the plane. I retested by powering up the aircraft and every thing is fine. I have not flown it still, but anticipate to have a great encounter.

Just ordered another one these. Last two i purchased worked flawlessly. I will update after i install this new one on my newly built s550 for fpv of photography shooting. These work great for seeing what my gopro 5 hero is pointing at. I tried using gopro as fpv but the lag was way to bad and made it hard to fly safely.

Took a minute to determine out how to get ability and regulate camera configurations. But fantastic bang for the charge.

I think 600mw maybe overkill since my range is now limited by my radio because i now hit failsafe with a crystal clear picture. I also noticed the transmitter did get hot with the included whip antenna, but switching it out for a cheap clover leaf solved this and also improved image quality.

The picture quality is way better than expected. Easy to use digital display. I am an fpv quad fanatic and thought it would be fun to put this in my traxxas rustler and it was a very simple plug.

This device broke just after a minimal crash. The array is effectively more than 200 meters. The camera’s image is crisp and the color really lively. Great fpv rig for the selling price.

Transmitter gets hotter than a son of a gun. Be prepared to make a cooling box for it. I bought a mini pc card fan and fixed it to the transmitter to keep it cool. Picture was good and the signal was decent. For the money, it’s pretty nice. Always go with the sony 3/4 chip.

Great price works fine even w/o clover leaf antenna up to 600′ out.

Excellent fpv setup for all my rc vehicles. Fast delivery and great support.

*edit*it works perfectly fine if you figure out the issues. The wires in plug that comes with vtx is not correctly placed in order. Red is used for ground- and blue is used for voltage+. I plugged camera into the supplied power from vtx blue wire and it started squealing like it was being fried from too much heat. I tested the output voltage from vtx and 19. 8 volts seems way too high for this camera and will burn it out. I finally ended up using filtered 12 volt and ground from pdb to power the camera instead of the blue wire from vtx. Do not use the supplied plug from vtx to camera. Cut that harness and make sure you power camera from pdb or it will be noisy. Camera is the best part about the purchase with an awesome osd but needs lots fine tuning to work.

A tiny upset that you have to use a distinctive connector to setup the osd.

AKK KC02 600mW FPV Transmitter with 600TVL 2.8MM 120 Degree High Picture Quality Sony CCD Camera for FPV Multicopter : I like the system but i didn’t get the connector needed for external adjustments to the settings so it was either adjust it once and never get access again unless i take it all apart, or.

Camera and transmitter operate as marketed. Very clear picture and reliable transmission of online video from my fpv rc airplane.

Fantastically obvious and crisp picture quality. Hues and distinction are spot on. The vary of the vtx is as considerably as you may at any time want. I flew up 1km high with my airplane and continue to experienced a wonderful picture, but had a distinct antenna on it to be truthful.

Low latency about 2000’ of range with cheap googles.

I bought this to add an fpv camera to a hex that didn’t have one. It installed easily, has a good picture, and good range. Overall i’m happy with the setup and would recommend it as a basic fpv camera.

Worked really good until the sma connector came off for no reason. Now i have to buy another vtx.

I purchase this set up for a test trial of long range fpv. Surprisingly enough this set works great it got me out further than i’d flown before the camera works well for what it is. If your looking for a set up that won’t hurt when you crash during test flights or learning than this is it. I will more than likely order again i fried my ftx by trying to solder straight around the connector.

Don’t know much about durability, but the video quality is just okay. Excellent, range though with 600mw half mile out and still works. It’s always the control signal that has problems instead of the video.

It has a obvious picture each working day and night time. The configurations were sort of challenging so i bought on youtube and used some of the choices that other people utilised which was helpful.

  1. Not only is the picture blurry (focus problems?) but while using it, apparently the 2. 4ghz signal between my transmitter and rc causes interference.

    1. Video quality was great (especially compared to my 90mm micros) compared to other standard stack vtx’s i’ve used in testing. Once i took off for my first actual flight, things were going good until about the 30 second mark when the vtx started smoking and burning off the tail of my quad. Not i never go more then 10 feet away when first testing so as soon as i lost video i pulled my goggles and ran to power everything down. No damage to my quad but the vtx burned off my antennas. So i guess i was one of the ones to get a bunk one. I’m going to try another (weather through warranty or purchase because i really like the camera. But hope this saves your quad. (dont test too far away, or i would have been out hundreds).

    Product works, but has an extremely unfocused and dim picture. Have used my fpv goggles with other cameras and never had this problem. Also tried a run cam with this transmitter and no problems. Spend $10 more and get a better setup unless all you need is the transmitter, which works great.

    1. Using this for a remote target practice camera. The unit is installed and wired to a 11. When powered up it gets so hot you cant touch it. Led display is working (see pic). Cant get a video feed because i am afraid of burn up.

  14. Camera is junk, first of all the picture quality is terrible, the color is way off with no way to fix it. Picture is blurry, i even tried to focus it. Then the way you have to hook up the cam to your tv using a different battery plug than it comes with. Not worth the trouble and money, i will be sending back.

    (thank you reviewer) red is – and blue is positive. Hooked it up and it just started burning up and i couldn’t figure out why it wouldn’t run on 5v. Camera quality is great after tuning. Unfortunately for me, after modifications i can not use this transmitter.

    1. I really tried to give this setup a chance. It feels like it is pretty well made. First off, this vtx says it can run off of 7v to 24v or something. Apparently it needs an unregulated 7v+. Finally got that figured out. Powered up the cam and the image is offset by approx. Half the screen size and black and white. Unhooked cam and plugged in the provided osd tool. Hooked it up to a tv and the image is rolling on the tv and black and white.

    1. Bought this system after preusing others and reading reviews. I just connected the vtx and camera and fabricated power/ground leads with bullet connectors as i intend to tap into the power distribution harness on my elev-8 quadcopter. No problem with initial hook up and test, and it was easy to install on the aircraft. I retested by powering up the aircraft and everything is fine. I have not flown it yet, but expect to have a great experience.
