In this FPV demonstration we are using a DJI Phantom 2 with DJI Zenmuse H3-3D but the same guide apples to all Heliguy builds such at the S1000+ and S900 with the Boscam Thunderbolt transmitter. * When buying your FPV package with Heliguy, this comes already set. * First you need to install your RX and TX antennas to your video transmitter and FPV monitor. Screw on the orange TX antenna to the Boscam video transmitter and set it to Band E and Channel 1 so the red LED display shows E1 . To set the band hold the channel button until the band letter changes and to change channel press the channel button quickly until the Channel number changes. fpv transmitter

Setting up your FPV monitor

Screw on the Blue RX antenna on to your FPV monitor. You may also use any spare Black RX antennas on the other antenna terminals as below.

FPV Trouble shooting

Problem Cause Solution
Rolling black and white image Wrong Colour system (Pal/NTSC) Make sure your GoPro and monitor are set to Pal-I in the UK or NTSC for USA (The Boscam Galaxy D2 does this automatically)
Lines on video image with DJI Gimbal Gimbal has no video signal shielding from it's own motor interference None
Low FPV Range May be wrong channel or aerial Make sure both video TX and RX are on the same channel. Also Make sure your aerials are not to close together (as in your video and phantom controle aerials). If These still don't work i recomend upgrading your aerials to Boscam 5.8GHz Cloud Spirit
Image keeps flickering Using indoors Try your rig out doors. Some flickering is normal
