The QC on this product was great when it first came out but now is very poor. If you get one that you cannot reliably unlock or the signal quality is poor, please contact this email address (email@example.com), describe the issue and include a screenshot of your order from us. They should not hassle you too much and will refund you. We will no longer be stocking this product once we run out. Also, it's not unusual for products in this industry to take this path where they're awesome when they first come out but a few batches later they're awful. Very sad and we're working as hard as we can to manage this from happening.
So yeah, this thing is REALLY tiny. We’ve used a lot of little vtx’s….this one is pretty darn impressive. If you can deal with the 5v only and don’t care for a DVR, this is definitely an incredible bang for the buck with best in class features.
A bit of a warning: The solder points are very little. Just be aware that it's not the easiest to solder up and a fine solder tip and good solder will help make this task easy. Here's a link to good solder: https://amzn.to/2P5QM2W

In actual use, the Vtx seems to have some channels locked out like Raceband 1 and 2. This is not uncommon to comply with FCC standards.
If you need a Vtx table, copy paste this into the CLI:

In order to unlock the vtx, you have to cycle pitmode 3 times within the first 30 seconds of powering on. so i put pitmode on a switch, and flipped it slowly 3 times but had 0 success. I couldn't figure it out. I had the vtx table that was listed in the description set up properly. then i noticed that the channel i had it set to via smart audio was a locked channel. i switched to fatshark 1, which wasn't locked, power cycled, and tried pitmode again, and it worked fine! I'm not sure if that was the reason or not, but throwing it out there for anyone that has problems.
Dead on arrival. FPVcycle promissed to replace it in my next order
Not too much to say about this one, it works great! Pretty easy to wire up, and easy enough to get smartaudio going. It seems to run pretty darn hot, even at the lower powers, but I guess it’s not enough to hurt it.
Best Nano VTX out there ;)
these actually aren't what I thought. I thought these were the exact same as the eachine nano vtx, they're not. I like the eachine a bit better, but these are still a good choice
