How many times have you captured a video with your quadcopter or other video equipment, only to find out later that the video is completely unusable or not what you need? With the Basic FPV Monitor Kit from KumbaCam, you can watch your videos and line up your shots exactly as you want them. Get the perfect shot every time!

You're looking for a way to get more use out of your DJI Phantom 1, DJI Phantom 2, or other video equipment. We have the solution. The Basic FPV Monitor Kit is an easy-to-use kit that helps you transmit video from your camera to the screen, allowing you to make sure that you have the right angle and point-of-view during flight.

Whether you're a video pro or a hobbyist, we've made the Basic FPV Monitor as easy to install as possible. The Basic FPV kit works right out of the box. There is no need to change the settings as KumbaCam pre-configures the system for you. Because of this, the MENU and OK buttons have been disabled as they are not needed. Don't worry, you are not missing out on any functionality having these buttons disabled.

Features of the Basic FPV Monitor Kit

  • Large Monitor for Easier Viewing: The 7" monitor is one of the largest and clearest in the market, but it's still small enough for easy transportation and carrying. It's the perfect combination of clarity and convenience!
  • Detachable Antenna: The detachable antenna helps you get a clear picture as long as your video camera is in range. With a detachable antenna, you don't have to worry about it snapping off or making transit difficult.

Why You Should Choose the Basic FPV Monitor Kit

  • Long Range: The 5.8 Ghz receiver of the Basic FPV Monitor Kit has a range of 500 feet/150 meters while you're in open areas. This lets you use your camera to its full potential.

  • Compatible with Many Different Cameras: The setup of the KumbaCam FPV Monitor is perfect for DJI Phantom cameras. However, you can use with other cameras as you wish!
  • Live Footage: Sometimes, monitors may lag behind in receiving video or showing you what your camera is capturing. The Basic FPV Monitor Kit is designed for immediate live footage with little to no latency, allowing you to adjust your shots and angles in real time.
  • Long Battery Life: The monitor's battery lasts 1 1/2 to 2 hours, giving you plenty of time to capture the video you need and get the perfect shot.

**Phantom 2 Owners**
If you are using the Zenmuse Gimbal (2-axis or 3-axis), you will need to buy a Plug N Play (PNP) Adapter (Taps into Phantom's power) or a Charger in order to charge the included batteries. (Flight time is about the same using the Phantom 2 PNP Adapter vs the included batteries)

**TIPS**

  • NEVER POWER TRANSMITTER WITHOUT ANTENNA CONNECTED
  • Always make sure the transmitter battery is disconnected after use. Allowing it to drain may render the battery unable to charge on the Phantom battery charger.
  • Interference is normal.
  • Make sure the antennas are facing up and down.
  • Try to stay still. Face the copter and keep line of sight at all times.
  • Open fields are best. Avoid buildings, trees, wifi signals and power lines.
  • All Li-Pos ship with a half charge for safe storage. Please fully charge all batteries before use.
  • By default we include a GoPro Hero 3 video adapter. Hero 1 or Hero 2 adapter is available here.
  • If you have a JR/Spektrum transmitter you can purchase the adapter here.
  • Monitor will work in PAL and NTSC mode

**What's included?**

  • 7" FPV Monitor with built in 5.8 Ghz Receiver (Range of 500ft/150m in open area)
  • 1.5 - 2 hour battery life while receiving signal
  • Home Charger
  • Car Charger

  1. Works like a champ (Amazon Review)

    Posted by Matt Edwards on Jul 8th 2015

    There was a back order so they sent me the "Ultimate FPV Kit" instead and upgraded my shipping. Right of the bat totally impressed with KumbaCam. True there are few instructions but if you are getting into FPV you likely have the geek cred to figure it out, it's pretty easy. The couple of questions I did have were answered via a personal phone call that cleared up everything. I did order an antenna upgrade cause there is a fair amount of interference, IMHO, with the stock whip antennas.

    I purchased this unit for framing my shots for aerial photography and this fits the bill perfectly. My client is able to see what I and the quad see so we can work a shot together. This paid for itself easily, and it's fun.


  2. Works great and easy to use!

    Posted by JW on Jul 8th 2015

    I use this with my Phantom 2 and it works great, right out of the box. I wired it into the Phantom's power, which I strongly recommend or else you need to buy a separate charger for the battery and then figure out how to attach the battery to your drone. The only thing I don't like is that the velcro they include to attach the transmitter to the drone, is not very good. Besides that, it's great!


  3. Awesome (Amazon Review)

    Posted by Cynthia G. Weaver on Jul 8th 2015

    The best thing ever for the Phantom and your Go Pro Hero 3 camera. Makes a fabulous experience even better.


  4. Kumba Cam is the best (Amazon Review)

    Posted by Mel006 on Jul 8th 2015

    Not only is the product from KumbaCam an amazing product, but it was shipped fast, and came in a neat case that I feel was beyond what we required of them! But this kind of attention to detail is what makes KumbaCam and their products the best on the market for the price.

    For my needs I didn't want 'goggles' over my eyes, i needed to be able to watch a monitor and then look up at my quad copter. KumbaCam provides that perfectly.


  5. I posted the instructions for the Advanced Kit, so I figured I would do the same for the Basic. Enjoy. (Amazon Review)

  6. Very easy to install and requires no setup, works great! (Amazon Review)

    Posted by Stuart S. on Jul 8th 2015

    Yet another happy camper. I purchased this product and received it about a week later. I have a DJI Phantom 1 with a gimbal mount for the gopro http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GAXYJFS/ref=wms_ohs_product?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . It toom me all of 30 minutes to get this system up and running with my setup, super simple! Just mount the monitor/receiver to the DJI transmitter and charge that battery, then mount the transmitter to the Phanton (I used some servo tape to mount to the bottom of the Phantom). I used some of the provided velcro to mount the tranmitter battery to the phantom as well.

    Once everything was charged and mounted up I just plugged the gopro into the transmitter, then the battery into the tranmitter and turned on the screen/receiver and everything worked perfectly.

    I was looked for something easy to install, setup and I couldn't ask for more. Great product at a great price.


  7. Works fine for lining up camera shots, but the screen monitor resolution could be better for flying FPV (Amazon Review)

    Posted by Big Sur Steve on Jul 8th 2015

    If you are looking for a FPV system that is easy to instal and works, the KumbaCam might be right for you. This version of the KumbaCam is fairly short range at 400 to 500 feet, which works for my purposes. If you are looking for a longer range FPV, check out their other model.

    If you decide to get this FPV system, I recommend you get extra Velcro to attach the transmitter to your UAV. While the KumbaCam does come with some Velcro, it's not enough to secure the transmitter with any degree of confidence. Also, I would highly recommend getting the sun shade for the screen. In bright sun light, the screen is difficult to see. One last thing you might want to get is a set of clover leaf antennae for the receiver and transmitter. These will help reduce snow on the screen, but not eliminate it entirely.

    Likes-
    -price for what you get
    -plug and play. I use this FPV on two quadcopters and it is simple to switch between the two
    -the company is very responsive to questions and gives good product support

    Dislikes-
    -the fitting for the receiver antennae has come loose
    -the resolution of the monitor works fine for lining up camera shots, but could be better if you intend to fly FPV


  8. Four Stars (Amazon Review)

    Posted by helmet mehl on Jul 8th 2015

    great product, easy to install.


  9. Four Stars (Amazon Review)

    Posted by TodayTrader on Jul 8th 2015

    as described


  10. Easy to setup FPV

    Posted by Steve on Jul 6th 2015

    Getting everything setup and working was very easy, however my DJI PII has the Tarot T2D Gimbal and the GoPro 3 AV out cable with the kit does not work with the Tarot Gimbal (because of the camera mount). Luckily there are two options available and since both were under $5 (USD) I bought both just in case. Both worked but I used the slightly more expensive cable has it has a mount where an exiting screw on the Tarot gimbal camera mount also help holds the GoPro AV cable to the gimbal mount. This particular cable also has an audio input for the RX, but I just taped if off as I didn't need to hear the prop noise from the Phantom II.
    I purchased the better antennas based on other reviews and have no signal loss at distances of 80-100 feet. Haven't tested any further distances at this time. It is nice to be able to see what the GoPro sees for framing shots and determining how close the UAV is to other objects (trees, signs, etc.)
    Would've given it 5 stars, but because of no mention the original cable wouldn't work with the Tarot Gimbal, I gave it a 4 as I had to wait another 10 days for the other AV cables to arrive.
