    For the price, going for the Phantom 2 Vision+ is the cheapest that is FPV ready.

    However there is also Aerial Media Pros and DSLRpros for starters. :lol:

    If I were you I would wait a couple of months to buy a Phantom 2 vision plus.
    Maybe even longer.

    If it is for purely recreational then I would wait and get a phantom 2V+
    It is normal 100% ready to fly out of the box.
    But there have been a lot of problems with QC control and repair return time is a month or more at the moment.

    Now is a good time to buy used phantom 2visions as people are unloading them to buy a plus.

    Never buy directly from DJI,
    Always buy from a well established dealer like B&H photo in NY.
    They are 100% on the ball. They have a reward system for being stuff from them.
    I bought my P2V and a 23gb L10 SD card from them and a month later I got a email with a gift card reward
    that was enough to buy a pair of props and paid for shipping.
    And they only stock DJI parts no cheap knock offs.
    I trust them 100%.

    I have A P2V and it has been rock solid for the last 3months.
    only problems have been cause by me but easily repaired.

    The DJI product is good but right now the QC is hit or miss.

    What was wrong with it?

    If DJI isn't working out for you, then I guess you can try looking over at 3DRobotics. The RTF X8 fully loaded for about $2300 (without GoPro) seems legitimate. I'm actually going for these next sometime in the long run (very long).

    I built my setup "manually"... started with a P2 + H3-2D bundle. Separately purchased: more Phantom batteries, GoPro, backpack, FPV materials, etc.

    all in I am only a few hundred dollars under the B&H photo Phantom bundles. imo they are very fairly priced. Not sure what gimbal they use but another price reference point can't hurt eh?

    they also have silver and bundles exactly like that with no gopro if you already have one
