Also here are the scanned manuals:






I have installed this FPV set on my XLH 9120 RC Car:







Both the Vtx and camera were easy to install. The image is good and since its a CCD camera it performs well under low light situation, The camera feels similar to the one i used on my VRX octane.





So Far the only thing i don't like is the stand for the camera that holds the camera with only 2 screw and while it secures the camera in place the camera moves up and down on the Y axis when the car drives over bumpy terrain, so you have to fix the camera in the desired angle with some hotglue

There is also a quick unboxing video i made here:

Is it still working 3 years later? For this price, it looks great!

Yes still working fine and the image is nice and wide. Also the camera does not change position / does not move around even on bumpy terrain

Giving the fact that this hardware is what you would call a budget friendly equipment, I think this is a great example that you can get good quality for a reasonable price. I wouldn't recommend it to professionals, but I think for a regular simple user this device will be more than enough to do the job. Anyway, thank you for your mini-review, I think reviews are very important for anyone looking to buy something.

I've talked to one of my friends about the KC02 5ghz Transmitter and Camera, and he told me that the system works great! No problem with the initial hook up and test, and it was easy to install on the aircraft. He also told me that he retested it by powering up the aircraft and everything was fine. The latest I bought was a rear-view mirror camera system based on a review I read on https://atfulldrive.com/best-rear-view-mirror-cameras, and I am very pleased with my choice because everything works perfectly.
