The Flysight TX5804 5.8 GHz 32 Channel Long Range Video Transmitter has seven (7) RF channels. It is compact, lightweight, and has a wide operating voltage. A great choice for hobby robotic and R/C FPV model applications. It’s compatible with our 7-Channel Flysight, ImmersionRC, and FatShark 5.8GHz video receivers (and goggles), including our popular 7-Channel Black Pearl Diversity Monitor. It has a flexible mono audio input too. Most installations will prefer the built in microphone. However, external line-level audio can be fed into the A/V cable instead. The external audio method is ideal for an audio based telemetry system or installations that require a remotely mounted microphone.
You may have seen the economy priced video transmitters sold by other suppliers that are advertised to be compatible with a large variety of 5.8GHz receiver brands. Despite their claims, the RF bandwidth and modulation characteristics on competitor brands are not precisely matched to the ImmersionRC and FatShark receivers’ requirements. So this may result in a slight decrease in video quality or other issues. We know you demand the best FPV performance so we have configured our TX5804 for highest performance when used with our ImmersionRC, FatShark and FlySight receivers. Your purchase includes the TX5804 7-channel transmitter, SMA equipped +3dBi dipole ducky antenna, and JST/BEC style power cable and bare pigtail A/V cable (soldering required). Or, choose the alternate Phantom2 cables instead. Please see the photos and details below for more information about your cable choices.

Most installations will need the standard cable set (JST/BEC power cord and 5-wire A/V pigtail cable). However, if you are a DJI Phantom 2 owner then we have special cable options just for you! Simply choose the alternate cable set that is needed for your particular Phantom 2 installation.
The TX5804 transmitter accepts a wide voltage range (6-28 VDC) and is compatible with 2S-6S LiPO battery packs. NEVER exceed the recommended maximum voltage or reverse the polarity. NEVER operate the transmitter without a proper antenna. Otherwise permanent damage will result and the warranty will be void. The operating range will depend on the environment, installation, and other factors. As a guideline, using a 5-8dBi Patch antenna on a compatible receiver (not included) will provide about 1500 meters in wide open line-of-sight environments. Obstructions and interference sources will severely reduce its range.
Notice: This is a ham radio hobby type product. Using the TX5804 in the USA and most other countries will require an Amateur Radio license. Some countries may forbid its use. It is your responsibility to ensure that its use meets the requirements imposed by your government’s RF spectrum regulations. Do not purchase this product if you are unsure of the government requirements or are not able to comply with them.
