5.8g phone and fpv?


Anyone have any knowledge on 5.8g capable cell phone and using them to pick up for feed?


I don’t know of any phones that can pick up the 5.8GHz band out of the box, in fact I doubt one exists because of how niche that feature is. However, you can use a USB OTG receiver connected to your phone to display a video feed; I have this one which works pretty well apart from a bit of latency. That said, I wouldn’t use that system for my primary monitor because of the aforementioned latency, I’d much rather prefer having a dedicated monitor/set of goggles. Box style goggles are pretty decent nowadays and great value for money.


Damn I figured but never hurts to ask.


5.8 Ghz digital data != 5.8 Ghz analog video
