  • Eachine LCD5802D 40 Channel 7 Inch FPV Monitor

    In short, you will get a very bright, 7" LCD FPV Monitor with 5.8Ghz Dual diversity receiver with built in 2000 mAh rechargeable battery and a Sun Visor. Also has a Micro SD card slot, to record the footage though not the greatest frame rate or resolution you can find. This FPV monitor can be mount on an standard tripod. Basically you get everything you need to start with.

    LCD monitor is very clear and bright, though only 800x600 resolution. Auto search function is quite fast and pick up the channels quickly, on manual mode there is 40 channels available for pick up - 5 Channel groups with 8 Channels in each group. It's a very thoughtful design, even the sun visor in the collapsed position will act as a protective cover (please check pictures). In collapsed state, the monitor is only little more thicker than one 7" Google Nexus Tablet

    800x600 resolution is very reasonable for current standards as most of the mid priced range drones come with 720p resolution or many of the 1080p / FHD ones are not that great in real life situations. Frame rate is also slightly lower from what I can see, must be around 22fps or so. Still a great package you get for such a small price. Major highlight for me is the build quality, battery life, built in speaker and the auto search feature.

    Since I received the receiver, I record every single flight footage. This way I can keep track of the drone via the recordings, just in case the drone goes out of sight and crash somewhere. I keep it in a tripod in the field to see what’s going on and I can focus on holding my control.

    Comes in the box, the 7” monitor in collapsed form (Once you open, you get Sun visor popped up), a decent quality carry pouch, 12V charging adapter and a kettle lead (you need UK adapter) and AV breakout cable. 2 minor things to mention, there is no manual quick audio adjustments and no USB charging. Overall a great unit, excellent value for money and easy to carry around. Please do check out the pictures to see what you get and how it looks in real world situation.
