Space - I bought a VictorMaxx Virtual Reality set through Ebay for about $35 w/shipping. It works great for what it is intended (Sega and Nintendo) but I thought it would be rigged for RCA jacks to use with the spycam type receiver. I think other guys from RC universe (where I got the idea in the first place) have used this system with success. If you want mine, I'll sell it to you cheap. Like I said, it works, is new, and would need RCA jacks soldered to it for use with a receiver. I'm not that gifted with a soldering iron or I would have converted it already. I'll ship it for $20 if you want it.

Do a search on Ebay for PS1 (Playstation One) LCD monitors. You should be able to find one for $50-$80 and they come with the RCA connectors that you need.

Other wise you can also check in the car stereo section of Ebay for LCD monitors.

Space, my virtual reality set is a head-worn goggle set. No RCA jacks, just the Nintendo and Sega jacks. Could splice into RCA but I'm not that talented. Let me know if you want to give it a shot. The PS1 mentioned in the last post sounds good, if available, and more expensive.

hmm, a 2" screen, cool idea, handy location on the tx. Would it be large enough to use? I think archer has a good idea of getting the $50 LCD. Maybe the flipout screens on some camcorders would serve well too? Best of luck, let me know what you go with.

I was looking for a monitor a couple weeks ago to hook up to my wireless camera. Looked all over the place for LCD monitor, and ended up buying a Casio 2.5" LCD TV. I gotta say I wish I bought the bigger PS1 5" monitor. Bigger is better.

Archer - how would one use the PS1 at the field? Assume it's 12v powered and could splice an adapter plug and attach banana clips.

Not familiar with the monitor, but if its 12v, just build a nicad pack to power it using cells with enough oomph to power it. I use 10 cell 1100mAh AA packs to power my half watt video tx on my Kadet and they are about the size of a cellphone. Would fit in my shirt pocket in any case or be velcroed to the back of my Futaba 9C. Could also power it off a flight box with a long enough cable but for the tripping hazard.

Does this price sound fair, or too much?

5" lcd TFT monitor with built in TV feature 100.00+ shipping.
