When you are out flying, recording your flights is a way to recover an aircraft, in an event of an engine failure. The Eachine LCD5802D 5802 is the next generation of budget first person view (FPV) monitors that gets better each time, putting it’s competitors (Lumenier, Skyzone) in a tough spot. It is light and easy to carry. I am really excited about this monitor, as it has every function we need to monitor our flights at dronemission.com. The Eachine 5802D LCD monitor comes with diversity antennas, DVR and 40 channels auto search, all three functions I would look for on a new FPV monitor.
First impression, every FPV pilot needs a DVR, with a DVR function, you can record your flight footage along with your On Screen Display information. This will allow you to playback, analyze your flight footage or to recover a lost model. The Eachine LCD5802D comes built-in dual receiver for best reception, allows you to place two types of antenna to provide the clearest picture in a variety of flying conditions. With dual buffered Audio Video (AV) outputs, you can connect a pair of google directly or an external monitor. It is capable of receiving 5 Bands and a total 40 Channels to cover all the transmitter known today and to stay compatible with new or old video transmitters. You can easily switch between channels with a one key signal search and the auto scan is fast!.

What To Expect If This Your First
You spend about 3 minutes to setup, just mount on a standard tripod, power on and you are ready to search for the next active channel. The scan is fast, but once you found the right band, continue to compare the clearest reception between channels.
The LCD is super bright, with sun shade you can see the screen easily. Press once to Start recording and press the same button to Stop and save your recorded video.
With a fully charged battery, the Eachine LCD5802D can last 3 hours. You can use a standard tripod 1/4 inch to mount this FPV monitor.
