Not really a review, just wanted to show you my new FX796T 40 channels Raceband VTX.
It looks extremely like my previously reviewed ATAS 40ch Raceband VTX, only difference is the location of the antenna connector.
Again it has the push button for changing frequencies and channels, and the LEDs indicates what channel you are on, which makes it extremely easy to do at the field. No more dip switches charts and tiny pins!
This VTX is small and fits in mini quad pretty well. It comes in a nice box with a cable, antenna and a manual.
The FX796T video transmitters exist in two power levels, you can find them fairly cheap these vendors, both provides free world wide shipping.
I personally would recommend the 200mW version for those who frequently fly with other people. Lower power would reduce the chances of video interference to other people’s video.
If you usually just fly on your own, and like to go around obstacles, 600mW would be your choice, which I am showing in this post.
There is really not much point getting 8ch or even 32ch VTX any more, unless you can find them much cheaper. having an extra frequency band (Raceband) would help so much in group races, and also more future proof.
Here is the manual in case someone needs it.
There are concern how to mount this VTX in a mini quad, as the antenna connector is in a awkward position. I think it really depends, in my case I am using a right angle cable extension lead and it works for me perfectly.
