How to Make DIY Cheapest 5.8G 40CH FPV Monitor

About: Hello, I'm Jewel. I've just started a youtube channel, hoping to help people, share some of my knowledge and learn myself.

I have always been a big DIY person. I love to make things, instead just buying it outright. Sometimes I end up spending way more money than what the ready to use package costs. But the real fun is actually figuring it out how you can make something out of easily available parts, that suits your needs and it costs a lot less. The best part of DIY is the things you learn along the way.

In this video, I show how I integrated "8Ch 5.8 Ghz Receiver" and "2S Lipo battery" inside the "7" LCD monitor" to make one compact FPV Ground Station. The ready system costs around $100 or more, and if it as diversity built in you looking at $150. But if you buy the Monitor, Video Receiver, Battery and some other little things like connectors and switches, you can make yourself entire system for under $60-$65.

1. 7" TFT LCD Monitor (usually marketed as Car backup camera monitor $25-$30)


2. 5.8 Ghz 40 Channel Boscam RC832 Video Receiver ($15-$20)


3. 1200mAh 2S Lipo Battery ($8-$10)


4. Mini Switches (Less than $1)

    It is because you guys dream up the ideas that we come along and piggy back on your concepts and add to it. Incredible idea. I also like the memory stick idea, nice touch.

    I recently did the same concept and connected the rca jacks from the receiver for my ProDVR out the bottom and added the rca jack also to the bottom for vid-2 (vid-1 designates fpv) for dvd player. When at home I use my kids old 12v pwr wheels battery, when out 7.4v 3s 1500mah instead of 2s (less capacity) Lipo.
