Receiver:

The receiver, as above, is a Skyzone RC832-HD 48CH 5.8Ghz FPV Video Receiver with HDMI Output, Item No FPV-RX RC832HD and features a HDMI output, as well as video AV. Power input: 6-24V.

1. Long press the button for 6 Seconds: The power indicator led flash while other indicator leds are off, then short press would change the power 25mW/200mW/400mW/800mW/1000mW.  2. Short Press one time, it will change the Channel (CH1-CH8). 3. Long press for 3 seconds and then short press, will change the FR (A-F).

After testing the camera rig on various power supplies, we found it needed at least 12v and the manufacturers power supply specs are wrong.
