Fatshark introduces their new version 3 5.8GHz 250mW video transmitter, now supporting up to 17 volts of input power directly.
The new version 3 caters to the growing number of higher voltage power systems, letting you connect with a 4cell lipoly pack directly without the need of a dedicated 12V BEC. The new FatShark V3 at 250mW of transmitting power is a great choice for mid to long range FPV use, and the small form factor makes for a nice and efficient install.
Not only is the FatShark V3 250mW transmitter based on the super stable 5.8GHz NexwaveRF band, it also has a dedicated 5v output for the FPV camera which makes it plug-and-play compatible with most cameras, making this one of the best all-around FPV transmitters available.

- Blade Count:
Great little transmitter. Had good solid video at 5km with a homemade cloverleaf and a 3 turn helical. Good solid performance.
Have three of these. Great Tx. Labeled inputs for reassurance. Would definitely recommend to a friend, or anyone in the hobby really. Higher priced compared to some others, but I believe in the top notch quality and reliability.
Great Tx. Upgrade the antenna. Pretty durable, makes it through the crashes with no problem. Connectors lock which helps.
This must be one of the best Vtx in the market, small enough to fit in most FPV Racers (280, 250, 210, 180, 150 and maybe 130).
Comes protected by a clear shrink wrap, now if you want to change the channel you'll have to cut the clear plastic a little bit just behind the small black plug.
Best results if used with a circular polarized or patch antenna.
When you install it in your racer be careful with the sma connector that tends to break if suffers stress from crashes, so install the Vtx in a way that if you crash the antenna wont stress the sma connector.
A bit expensive but the best one I have used so far. Within a densely populated area the range is less than 100m (analog signal loss is almost instant) but in the field I have had not even a blip to 1km with clover leaf antenas.
got about 600 meters with this on stock anntena
Very good Transmitter work nice.
The quality is great, good manufactured. I tested it up to one mile distance, no problems at all. I powered it with a stepdown, there can't say any about the V3 feature.
This is the best TX hands down. Internal power filtering is not enough though, add a LC filter on the power line to get clean crisp images.
I love this TX. Although not as small as some other I really learnt to appreciate the solid connectors/sockets especially after mu experience with the flimsy socket/plug arangement on SkyZone TS5823. As long as you can afford a slightly larger size tx can't go wrong with this one.
