Hi guys, I wanted an fpv monitor that had a receiver built in.
Looking around online there’s some for around $100ish but I already had a spare Sony LCD meant for a reversing camera, and a spare RC832 so I
figured I would give it a shot !
I disassembled both first, and was pleased to find a little free space in the LCD.
I positioned things around a bit and used a sharpie to Mark things out to get an idea of if this was feasible.
It looked like it would work !
The cables it had were huge and thick and had multiple connectors and Yada Yada I didn’t want all that so I just soldered to the convenient break out connector !
I did some final position testing and drilled some holes for the buttons and antenna connector, also drilled a hole and filed it a bit for the LED display on the receiver to see which channel we are on.
Hooked it up and tested everything before routing the power cable through a hole, the hole I drilled inadvertently had a connector right in front of it when ibsealed up the case, this conveniently served to compress the cable and provide strain relief!! (The connector was unused anyway!)
Everything sealed up and working !
Crude holes but meh they work !
It has a tripod screw hole in the bottom and that slot for mounting. I’ll sort something out to mount it later.
It has the option to disable blue screen so I can always get as much image as possible even with low signal !
Runs off a 3s lipo.
Not much room inside for anything else or I would have tried to fit something inside to power it…
Picture looks great ! It’s super bright so should be visible outdoors well enough.
That’s all for now !
