    I have pretty much that exact same kit (smallhd monitor though instead of that one included). I pieced it together myself as I didn't need a lot of the included pieces like gopro, SD cards etc.
    The whole system works very well, and if you have it preinstalled by B&H you should be good to go. One thing of note is that preinstalled stuff cannot be returned too B&H for refund, which is part of the reason I decided to piece the kit together myself.
    It's an amazing system though for the money, I am blown away by the video it is able to capture, and I'm not even that good at flying it, some of the user videos on this forum are unbelievable.
    If I were you I would also snag a couple more batteries, we have 4 and two chargers so can effectively fly the thing all day with the batteries charging on rotation.

    Just get the kit you linked to. Honestly that would be the easiest complete solution. Most people on here don't use the DJI AVL58 kit, I think due to range limitations, but I have been using it and for my purposes it works great.

    Forget it, buy the Phantom 2 with gimbal and the other stuff and spend the 60 minutes to put it together yourself...

    I see the really jacked the price of the case up. I paid $199 (B&H) back in March for mine

    FYI, I have zero issues on the range of the AVL58. I fly out 1800 feet from 20ft to 400ft

    Personally I would take a very hard look at the Walkera Tali H500. It has some nice features the Phantom 2 does not have.

    Ya but it might have a lot of flaws because it's so new maybe a lot of flyaways etc.
