    Hi All

    Been reading this forum for a while since I got my P2 - great info. Time to dip my toe...

    I'm interested in getting an FPV for my P2 (with Zenmuse Gimbal and GoPro). I've been reading up a bit and am not completely clear on the full solution.

    If you don't mind I have some questions

    1. Goggles or a screen (or even both?). Not sure which is better to use or why to use one item over another. Any suggestion over the different Fatshark models?

    2. Transmitter - I have seen both FatShark and ImmersionRC available. Is ImmersionRC compatible with FatShark Goggles?

    3. What is a simple setup for the Phantom 2. I have seem some kits as plug and play (ie no soldering). Is that only for Fatshark?

    I found these two sites offering complete kits but the prices seem quite different. I clearly don't understand enough yet as I'm not sure why there is the price difference for seemingly similar items.

    https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking..._FPV_Headset_System_w_Camera_and_5_8G_TX.htmlThis comes with a camera. I was hoping to use my GoPro for the FPV. The cost of this is US$279 (£170)

    This set up http://www.firstpersonview.co.uk/fpv-goggles/predator-goggles-ce is US$440 (£267).

    Any advice really appreciated.

    Thanks
