Troubleshooting your wireless system.

1. Make sure the Tx (transmitter) and Rx (receiver) are set to the same channel/frequency.
2.Power for the Tx and Rx should be between 10.5 - 13.6 VDC, as  lipos voltage can go below that.
3. Make sure the video and ground wires of the camera is connected to the video and ground wires of the transmitter. (See Example Here)
4. Check the camera by connecting it directly to a display monitor to make sure the camera is not faulty, or try different camera if you have other.
5. Important, make sure you use the AV cable that came with your receiver, other cable might look the same and fit, but internally they are wired differently.
6. If your receiver has the "A/B" switch. leave it on factory default unless the use of this switch is required in the instructions.

What else do I need to know about flying a FPV system?

Don’t fly too low when your model is too far. It migh cause your model to crash.
When installing your system into a model, try to keep your wireless video system as far as possible from the R/C system.
Always keep your a/v transmitter in a well ventilated place. NEVER confine your a/v transmitter where there is no air flowing, otherwise it can overheat and permanently damage it .

How to adjust the built-in microphone's volume. Just punched the clear shrink wrap on top of the volume controller by using a needle or something with a sharp pointed end.Then with right sides of its or small flat head screwdriver gently turn clockwise to increase the volume, or counterclockwise to lower the volume.

Poor video reception or range can be caused by many factors such as

Low quality receiver and transmitter
Stock whip antennas must to be in the same position straight vertical. If one antenna is straight vertical and the other is leaning to any direction, it will aftect the performance.
Multipath is a very common issue.

What is Multipath, and exemples.
A good set of circular polarized antennas is the best way to deal with multipath issues.
