7" HD COLOR MONITOR
WITH 5.8GHZ RECEIVERS
INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Tactic's FPV-RM1 first person video monitor
with integrated receivers is intended for
receiving video signals from a 5.8GHz FPV
transmitter (available separately) when
mounted inside an R/C hobby model. Three
bands with a total of 22 frequencies in the
5.8GHz spectrum are available. For optimum
results operate the system away from other
5.8GHz transmitters and in areas having as
few obstructions as possible to the Tx.
It is strongly recommended to completely read this
manual before use! Damage resulting from misuse
or modification will void your warranty.

CONTENTS
(1) FPV-RM1 monitor
(1) 7.4 volt 1800mAh lithium-polymer battery
(1) Sun shield
(2) RP-SMA mast antennas
(2) A/V cables
(1) External battery cable with adapter
(1) Micro-fiber cloth
ANTENNA INSTALLATION
Carefully thread the included antennas onto the RP-SMA receptacles on the monitor. Do not cross-thread
or overtighten! Mount the antennas before applying power to the monitor.
INPUT POWER OPTIONS
Power can be supplied by the included 7.4V 1800mAh (milli-amp hour) lithium-polymer (LiPo) battery
module which is located in the rear of the monitor, or from an external 12V DC power source.

CHARGING THE BATTERY: This monitor includes a built-in circuit to recharge the included battery. It’s
not necessary to remove the battery from the monitor for the purpose of recharging. Connecting an external
DC power source to the monitor’s DC IN jack will automatically start the charge process, as indicated by
the glowing red LED which will turn off when charge is complete. Acceptable power sources include an
AC/DC wall adapter, tabletop DC power supply, external battery, etc., rated to deliver 7.0 – 22.2V DC and
600-750mA (0.6-0.75A) of current. Tactic items TACZ5553 (110VAC / 12VDC Power Adapter) for N. America,
and TACZ5554 (220V AC/12V DC Power Adapter) for the EU are available separately through local hobby
retailers.
WARNING! Charging lithium-polymer batteries poses a risk of FIRE! Follow all care and handling
instructions in this manual to avoid severe and permanent damage to the batteries and all
surroundings which could result quickly from improper use and function.
The center pin of the DC IN jack is positive (+) polarity and 2.5mm in diameter.
The outer diameter of the DC IN jack is 5.5mm, having a negative (-) polarity.
Optional cables such as Tactic’s TACP0101 can connect the monitor to a DC
power source having banana jacks.
A cable is included to connect an external power source to the DC IN jack. A separate adapter is also
included to mate the DC IN jack to cables having smaller connectors.
To remove the battery module, press down on the thumb-lock below the battery and gently remove
the lower end of the battery from the monitor. To re-install, carefully align the module inside the top
of the battery compartment, then press into place until the thumb-lock clicks. Do NOT force the
battery if installation seems difficult! Contact your local recycler for proper disposal of the battery
when at the end of its life cycle. Do not dispose in the public waste system.
• Do not connect an external battery charger to the monitor’s DC IN jack.
• Do not attempt to charge the battery when removed from the monitor.
• Do not leave the monitor unattended while being charged!
• Immediately disconnect the DC power source if the battery becomes hot (over 140°F, 60°C), begins to
swell or emits smoke. Wear fire protective materials on your hands to move the monitor to a fireproof
location as it may be hot! Leave the monitor until it cools.
• Always charge the monitor in a fireproof location. Monitor the area with a smoke alarm, and have a lithium
approved fire extinguisher available at all times.
• Always provide adequate ventilation around the monitor during charge.
• Always keep LiPo batteries away from children.
• Do not allow the internal electrolyte from LiPo, Li-Ion or LiFe batteries to get in the eyes or on skin – wash
affected areas immediately if they come in contact with the electrolyte and contact your physician!
• Do not place the charger or monitor on flammable surfaces or near combustible materials (carpet, paper,
wood, plastic, vinyl, foam, etc.) while charging.

MOUNTING THE MONITOR
A threaded tripod mount is located on the bottom of the monitor. Make sure the monitor is fully threaded
onto the tripod (not included). Alternate methods can be used to mount the monitor to other surfaces/items.
Make sure the mounting method is secure and will not damage the monitor physically or electronically.
Damage to the monitor resulting from poor installation will not be protected under warranty. Do not block the
ventilation holes on the rear of the monitor, as otherwise excess heat could shorten the life of the monitor.
SCREEN CARE AND HANDLING
• Do not allow water, moisture or foreign objects into the monitor.
• Do not block the ventilation holes on the rear of the monitor.
• Do not apply cleaning fluid to the monitor such as alcohol, ammonia-based cleaners such as window
cleaning fluid, etc.
• Do not clean the monitor with paper towels, facial tissue, or materials which include abrasives such as
nylon, polyester, etc. as it could scratch the screen.
• With the monitor off and the screen cool, lightly dust the screen with compressed air from a distance of
at least 12 inches away. Then lightly wipe the screen with a micro-fiber cloth (included). Wipe the screen
slowly and in horizontal or vertical straight lines (not circular patterns).
A detachable sunscreen is included to help shield the display from sunlight
for optimum viewing. Unfold the sunscreen and align the tabs along the
top and side edges with the holes around the perimeter of the monitor.
Carefully press the tabs into place to affix the shield to the monitor.
