Experience FPV (first person view) control as you fly or drive your Drone Racer or car with the KYOSHO ONBOARD MONITOR. This wireless camera and monitor set brings the FPV system made popular on racing drones to hobby model users. The KYOSHO ONBOARD MONITOR operates on 2.4GHz frequency utilizing FHSS that also minimizes image transmission delay, unlike most systems that operate on 5.8GHz, which can require an amateur radio license. The wireless camera incorporates a transmission unit that allows it to be installed on the fuselage (or chassis) and communicate independently with the monitor mounted on the transmitter so you can start enjoying your model’s action from first person view. The wireless camera can mount straight on to the Drone Racer and can also be installed on the MINI-Z Racer with the included conversion connector (*1, 2) and on other R/C models with a standard receiver (*3, 4). Experience a totally new vision of land, sea and air model enjoyment with the KYOSHO ONBOARD MONITOR.
