    Hi there. I've lived in China 5 years and I'm finally moving home. I plan to make a film about the Great Wall of China shot from a Phantom 2 with a GoPro 4 before I leave. I'm about to purchase the full kit and caboodle which is a lot cheaper here. for example I can buy Phantom 2 + H3 3d gimbal for £344 or $550 direct from DJI on TaoBao which is China's e-bay equivalent. I can buy everything else for FPV on there as well and my friend has recommended the following products. I was wondering if anybody could have a look at them and comment? If you want translation use chrome browser and it should do it automatically. If you have better recommendations then please post the names here and I can search on TaoBao. I need to buy everything here so I can get shooting. I'm keen to practice and catch the autumn leaves. Many thanks, here's the links

    DJI sets their prices and vendors are not allowed to change them, to a certain extent. I just came back from China hoping to score some of the imitation batteries but couldn't find them in either Shenyang or Beijing electronics markets. I wouldn't buy the imitation batteries without trying them out first so I didn't order any from Taobao or Tmall.

    I don't know FPV gear yet but I am certan that battery is not for a P2 unless you intend to use it for other purposes.

    Thanks for your response. DJI has an official store on TaoBao which is where I plan to buy my phantom from and is where I got those prices from. I was really wanting an opinion on what my friend recommended for my FPV set up, hence posting in this forum. I'm pretty clueless and only have a basic understanding of what it is he recommended me. Are they known models and if familiar are they good any input gratefully received. I plan to buy everything I need on TaoBao
