Looking to upgrade my video transmitter/receiver after being duped into buying junk from "http://robertbenson.com/blog/" Has anyone had good experiences with "RF-Videos" products? I was looking at purchasing the "SPX-69TM Steadicam video sender (transmitter)" paired with a "M-800 video receiver."
I am shooting with an older Flyer sled, so standard BNC SD video output being split from the camera to the stage as well as the transmitter.
As always, thank you in advance for you help and sugguestions.
Keep em flying,

I've been using an SPX-68 TM for nearly a decade. Works great with consumer grade portable LCD monitors (analog NTSC). I have split the signal out of a camera to both rig and transmitter and this works. However the transmitter is more finicky than a monitor in terms of the signal it will accept, so you need to make sure your video cables are in good shape, particularly if you're using a y-splitter rather than a junction box. I can't testify to how effective it would be with the M-800 receiver. I imagine the quality of your antennae system would be crucial for getting a consistent signal with the M-800. Also: The SPX-68 has a limited frequency range which has worked fine for me, but may be a hinderance if you work in a transmission saturated locale like NYC.
