    5.8 VTx for Mini Talon

    I've got a mini-talon on the bench that should be ready in a week or two. I want to put a 5.8Ghz VTx in it for local field flying (not long distance). I already have a board camera. And I have both goggles and a VRx/Monitor for ground gear I use with my quads. So I have to decide what VTx to buy. Can anyone recommend a reliable one that is a good price-point?

    I like the IRC 600 ( which are usually closer to 800-1000) but there are lots of options out there now. Mini talon is the best.

    I was thinking of the Foxeer TM600. The price seems pretty good. I haven't found a lot of written reviews but the youtube reviews seem pretty positive. I fly at an AMA field so I only need something for VLOS range. I won't be running an autopilot though so I want to make sure I get enough range that it doesn't break up.

    I've owned the ImmersionRC 5.8Ghz 600mw VTx.
    Highly recommended and with the proper set of antennas, you could hit 2KM easily.
    No video break ups, just solid performance. As long as there's no interference and trees along the way.

    More than 2km is easy with the IRC 5.8 vtx. I had a Mini Talon and it could do 8km with ease.

    If you already have a receiver then the choice would be quite easy?

    Aomway 500 is good and reasonably priced.
