Eachine TX526 VTX & EV800 Goggles (+ Runcam HD2)
#1
Question 
Hey,
I'm planning to purchase this video transmitter (TX526). I have looked into many transmitters and decided that this is probably the best for me. I'm planning to run it on a 250mm frame quadcopter which has not been built yet (therefore, antenna connector does not matter as I'll be buying one anyway to replace stock) with a small heat sink and Deepcool thermal paste I have around. If anyone has any tips or anything to point out that I may not have found in item descriptions and video reviews when looking at video transmitters, I'd love to know about them!

I am also planning to get the Eachine EV800 goggles (also on Banggood but this eBay deal is in my country and cheaper, and only lacks a video in cable and bag) to use with this TX526 VTX and any others I get in the future. Is there anything else to consider, or will these work together as I'm expecting?

Finally, I am planning to use this gear with my full Runcam (already have one) to save money on buying a camera when the Runcam already comes with a video out cable (two wires for 5-17v power in, a yellow wire for video out and a white wire for audio out). From looking at videos connecting other cameras (like Runcam's small FPV cameras), it looks like I should be able to easily connect my full Runcam. It weighs 35 grams without the battery so it won't be ideal, but should give me great video until I want a lighter camera for proper racing.

I'm open to other suggestions, but these components seem like good choices to get for a budget flyer's first build.
Thanks!

I've got the EV800 goggles and no complaints whatsoever. I've got 4 or 5 five different VTXs and have never had a problem connecting to any of them. The only thing I've done is changed the cheap antenna to a decent RHCP cloverleaf

I think you should consider buying an fpv camera. Lag on all HD cameras is way bigger than even slower cctv ones. While you won't notice that at the beginning, it will impart your learning process.
Find me on Youtube and Instagram. I currently fly: NOX5, NOX5RAirblade Assault 130 and drive a scrap RC car

Thanks! I went ahead and purchased the TX526 transmitter and will probably get the EV800s unless anyone gives me reason to do otherwise. Smile

Ah yeah, thanks for that information. I will use my full HD camera just for testing it out but won't do any proper learning on it - will try and get a cheap camera for less than $30. I'll just use the Runcam in open spaces where it won't affect me and I won't get used to it too much!

The foxeer monster is in sale at surveilzone.com, but I haven't tried it so I can say anything about it

I have the EV800 goggles. Be extremely gentle with the buttons. They are not secured to the main board and I have had the power and search buttons fall off.

I'd send them back for an exchange, that's not typical

I have sent them multiple emails. Very little response, but the holidays might be throwing them off. I'll keep you all posted. It is indeed not typical. All of the reviews were very high, and the quality (short of the buttons falling off) is very nice.
