    I know this is probably been asked and answered many times but I would like to find some info without long and tedious searching on several boards, ie where I can find it and refer to it
    1. I want to explore FPV but DO NOT want FatShark goggles as I do not have a spotter. I want to transmit to a screen
    2, Video TX? Make, model source etc. Sources?
    3. Power and accessories for the video TX incl mounts for the screen on the standard Phantom TX. Sources?
    4. Shapeways(?) parts to mount everything on a Phantom.
    5. Feel free to add to my "wish list" here but please refrain from snarky comments.

    Thanks all, I appreciate your assistance.

    my fatshark's have the external video-out, which I've used with an external monitor once before for others to view, it's neat..

    just an option to consider.

    Thanks Gizmo. I'm not too sure I want to get the FatShark system only to put the goggles (the most expensive part) in a box probably not to be used.

    Highly recommended:

    http://www.foxtechfpv.com/32ch-58g-dive ... -1131.html

    Comes with a very nice hood, good bright screen, and no external receiver required. 32-ch so works with Boscam, Fatshark, etc. transmitters. Get a skew-planar or cloverleaf antenna for one side and put a patch antenna on the other side -- diversity system switches to whatever has the strongest signal. Very nice battery base (but you can use other batteries -- this is just a nice clean look):

    Finally, get a nice mounting bracket on eBay:

    Oh, and you'll need a transmitter of course -- Immersion (Fatshark) or Gaui recommended, but Boscam and DJI are fine too.

    DSLRPROS.com Sells a FPV Field Monitor Kit. The unit is made by RCLogger.com The RX and Monitor connect by sliding together so there are no wires and the rig can be mounted on your Rc Controller too. The TX will work with the Naza and can be powered by the Phantom's Accessory power cable. Tx cannot be powered by battery balance cable or it will fry the Transmitter. You can upgrade the antennas to 5.8 GHz Cloverleaf too.
