    Resoldering the camera crystal fixed the transmitter snow issue?

    In a way, yes it did. Snow might be an understatement since I didn't get any image without the crystal.
    Now everything works great.

    Ah, I get it now; the reported snow was due to a really bad camera image - not due to the headset being unable to receive the signal. I had interpreted the issue to have been the headset was getting background "snow" on all channels. Ok, glad you are back up and flying.

    I just received my kit from HK. Can't tell you how hard the wait was for the shipping. Unboxed everything, read the manual, installed the antennas and powered everything up - but all I get is static in the goggles. When I try changing channels on the goggles the pattern changes, but I never get an image. Any suggesting for troubleshooting?

    Managed to inject video from HK wing camera into Tx and got a video link! Now I am trying to figure out if the kit camera is DOA. I would love to check that the cable is built properly, but I can not find any information on the pinout for the camera side. I would be greatly appreciative if someone could post their pinout of their cable.

    I just received mine (5.8Ghz)

    Connected everything, changed channels on the goggles (not on the Vtx) and voila, clean and crisp image. I placed the Vtx on the couch, walked outside and up to about 50m i still had image. That's thru a few concrete walls.
    Home-made wireharnass for the Gopro also works excellent. (but too much delay to my liking)
    Now, if the weather would permit it, i would love to try this out on my quad!

    I believe that either my camera is dead or the cable from the camera to the Tx is wrong. I ohmed it out and have continuity in the cable. When I asked about a pinout , I am referring to what wire goes where in the connector. The Tx is labeled so I can check that side. That side appears to be correct (I was able to connect another video input to it and get it to work). The camera end of the cable is another story. It is not labeled so I do not know if that end is correct. The conector is keyed so it can only be inserted one way. Although there are two black wires in the cable the order of the colors in the connector on the camera end of the cable would be a huge help.
