I have read all your articles about the 5.8g 200mw FPV Wireless AV Tx & Rx Set. I also have the exact same set like you expcet the GoPro camera. I used the little camera but the problem is, everything works normal but I don’t get any picture, my screen is just black. I’ve already tried different things but nothing works. Do you have some advice?
