I couldn't get my black pearl to work at all, probably because of faulty fpv cable. Went with exact setup described in detail (generic TS353 generic 5802 and the pentalobes) and worked oob. On channel 8, I got 150m with stock antenna. I still haven't reached any snow on screen with the pentalobes. Im eternally grateful for this thread as I wasted a month (and my winter holiday) on immersionrc and black pearl.Soar said:Thanks for pulling this together, it has been incredibly helpful. I am piecing together my first FPV kit, based on the info in this thread.
It looks like the Black Pearl is now $229 at DPCAV. Most places have it for $229 but there is a shop on Amazon that sells it for $199 + $6 shipping.
I found another receiver kit on Hobby King. It is currently on back order, but it's only $131.56 if you wait for the better deal prompt.

Any thoughts on how this compares to the Black Pearl... is the Black Pearl worth the extra money, does it have better range, etc.? And will it work with the SkyZone TS353?
