    I recently got the Phantom 2 for Christmas and have been spending time trying to learn to fly and film. It's still challenging for me to tell how close I am to an object like a cliff or building when the phantom is between me and the object. If anyone has suggestions on how to "see" better I would appreciate it. I am getting an FPV system tmrw, so hopefully that will help me out.

    Critiques of the video are welcome. I will be getting much better footage as I learn what the quad/camera can do and how things actually film compared to how they look in the field while I am flying.

    Beautiful video, nice job.
    What kind of FPV system did you get? and how is it working?
    Just received my P2 2days ago and havent taken it out of the box yet.
    Looking forward to seeing more from you.

    I ended up going with the dji 5.8 transmitter, clover leaf antennae, a 5 inch wireless monitor and phone holder for monitor from dronefly. Had to solder some wires to hook it up, but fairly easy to do.

    I get a fair amount of static in my screen when the phantom is high or far away....but since I am new to this, I am not sure how much is considered normal. The Black Pearl screen on their website is supposed to be nicer.
