    I'm new to the form, after reading it for some time I encountered a setup that is in my budget of under $300 total for an FPV setup using a GoPro. I have only recently picked up a P2 and don't want to spend too much on FPV. Below is a setup that was posted by cjaviert for under $200, I wasn't able to get his feedback on it. If you have any experience with any of these parts, I would truly appreciate any and all feedback.

    - 7" Monitor with built-in 5.8Ghz receiver and Built-in Lipo Battery for 4 to 5 hrs viewing time ($88.85)

    - 5.8GHz Circular Polarized Antenna SMA Male For RC Transmitter/RX FPV FatSha PA#7 ($10.32)

    - New TS-351 5.8G 200mw AV Video fpv TX Transmitter TS351 ($25.12)

    - Gopro Hero3 FPV USB to AV Video Output Cable Hero 3 90 Degree Connector USA ($6.99)

    -DJI Phantom Gopro 3 CNC Metal Brushless Camera Gimbal with Motors & Controller with Tilt Control ($61.01)

    I would appreciate your feedback. I'm particularly concerned about the Gimbal quality. Also, would it be possible to integrate an IOSD Mini into this setup?
