Review: PandaRC VT5804 Minix 5.8G / cheapest but good 20×20 VTX ?

The VTX is packaging in a nice box and contains all connectors (wires, antenna) that you will need.

The VTX supports from 2S to 6S, PIT mode and IRC Tramp ! Moreover they are provided a +5v/GND output in order to solder directly a camera on it.

The VTX supports all classical channels so you will find the best frequency for you. I have not noticed any problems with it during indoors test (I will post more videos outside) and it respect correctly the desired frequency.

The IPX-E connector is perfect for many light build like toothpick or classic 3 inch setup.

I recorded this flight indoor, and most of time it is really a pain to have a clear signals which seems really ok with this VTX. If you are looking for a cheap and good VTX, this one will fit your needs !

You can see a good review here with the upgraded version of this VTX (800mw), and as you could see it respect well the specification:
