    Well as the topic states I am trying to add fpv to my phantom with zenmuse set up which I have been thoroughly impressed with. The Zenmuse has been working perfectly for me & adding fpv will give me exactly what I need as being ably to see what's actually being recorded will be a big help vs guessing as I have been doing. That being said I have ordered the DJI 5.8GHZ Video Downlink that I intend on pairing up with a 7" monitor. I do have the PMU V2 installed & am just wondering what I plug the 5.8GHZ transmitter into as I believe the video signal does go into the zenmuse controller so does it just plug into there & do I need a special cable ?

    There are a few versions of fatshark goggles. I was wondering if they will all work for zenmuse 2d?
    I'm particularly interested in fatshark hd versions. Or high def
    Anyone had hook up one? Any tips?

    I bought the DJI AVL58 TX/RX which I like a lot. It did require me to drill a small hole into the side of the Phantom to run the video cable to the transmitter however. You may not have to do this if you buy the Helipal one.

    Helipal has changed the power cable to connect to your 3s balance plug on your existing Phantom battery. This is the route I would go with if I had to do it over again. Then you don't have to solder the T-female plug to the power circuit on the Phantom. Buy it with the H2 video plug, you can use it to plug into the GMU on the Zenmuse and possible avoid adding holes.
