Whether you are a casual flyer or shooting aerial shots for your movie, you want to see what your camera is capturing while you fly your quadcopter. Analog monitors allow you to see a video image, long after digital monitors have turned to useless black or blue screens. The Elvid SkyVision 7" wireless LCD monitor, with its built-in wireless receiver, is compatible with optional transmitters in the 5.8 GHz frequency range, including DJI products.
With 32 channels over 4 bands, and RF analog input, the monitor also supports HDMI and composite signals in PAL and SECAM, so it can be used in most production environments. Elvid also presents a smartly designed bracket for attaching your monitor to RC remote controls from DJI and Futaba, positioning the monitor comfortably near your hands, and providing near-instant visual feedback as you fly your remote device.
WHAT SHOULD THE ELVID CHANNEL SETTINGS BE? I am not recieving any footage on the monitor.
I recently recieve my elvid monitor along with the AVL58 VIDEO LINK KIT (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/998680-REG/dji_cp_al_000001_5_8gz…) and the FPV HUB ( http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1024809-REG/dji_part9_phantom_2_f…). I've attached everything and the transmitter is running with 1 flash of yellow then 1 of green meaning it's transmitting on channel 1.
According the the channel card that came with the elvid monitor the first 4 switches should be down and the 5th switch should be up. STILL NOTHING!
Can someone please tell me what should these channels be and what should the HUB be switched to ( OSD or VIDEO )?
Hi Matt. I relayed this question to one of our Aerial specialists in-house, and he asked that you submit this inquiry directly to us via email, as there are some tables and other attatchments he commonly uses in replies which are not able to be posted here. You may send this request directly to [email protected] and he and our other Aerial specialists can tend to it. Thank you in advance.
How can I connect my Gopro 4 with teh elvid skyvision?
Hi Juan -
The Elvid SkyVision Wireless LCD Monitor and Bracket will not connect to a GoPro or other camera . it is designed to connect only to the AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit wich is a wireless transmitter (TX) and receiver (RX) set allowing the DJI Phantom Quadcopter to become a true FPV (first-person view) RC aircraft. This kit from DJI features two clover-leaf antennas, video and power cables. Adding wireless video to your Phantom experience takes the guess work out of aerial videography, allowing you to see what the camera sees. Operating on 5.8 GHz and featuring eight selectable channels, the operational range extends as far as 3937' (1,200 m) line of sight.

what is the distance that video can be recieved from this wireless monitor. I'm getting a DJI phantom 2 quad and use my gopro 3+ video camera so what else do I need to be able to have this work for me. Granted I can use my Iphone, but this is a much larger screen. Thanks in advance, Mike Corcoran
First I need to warn you to not use the wifi app on you phone to get the video downlink. It opporates on the same frequency as the controls for the quadcopter and can make it go out of control in flight.
This piece is to downlink the the video to your monitor. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1000577-REG/dji_iosdmini_iosd_mini_on.html
This piece overlays flight information such as heading, altitude, speed, and more on to the video downlink. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/998680-REG/dji_cp_al_000001_5_8gzhz_video_kit.html
Most commonly used with the monitor is the DJI AVL 5.8:
This will give you up to 3937' Line of Sight Range.
The wifi on the GoPro cannot be used as it will interfere with the flight of the copter.
