Help! Cheap FPV camera with 500m range


New member
Hi All,

I am new to drones and fpv, I have bayangtoys X16 drone and I am planning to have FPV on it so that I could know where the fish are for bait dropping.

I was able to find a decent FPV monitor "this one"
and a FPV camera as well. (But I am not sure if this can make 500m range)
I would appreciate anyone's input on which FPV camera to buy which can give me 500m range.

I am not looking for some HD photo capture camera, only basic stuff to let me make out where fish are.

500m should be doable with a 200mW VTx and a good high gain directional antenna on the receiver. I would do a bunch of testing over land before looking for fish though.
