    Trying to purchase a FatShark setup. Seems like HobbyKing is the only place and everything is backordered. I'd also like to buy a setup specifically for the Phantom and not have to piece it together. Am I asking too much? And is there a place other then HobbyKing that cares the FatShark?
    Appreciate your help!

    fatshark sells a couple of fpv version. check this one out:

    as far as i know, there is no all in one FPV system out there, and there isn't one specifically designed for the Phantom. yes you will need to tinker with the phantom in order to use FPV.

    Get a hold of Cliff at atlanta hobby.. They hooked me up with the Fat Pred V2's. Took about 4 days to get in to stock, make it work for phantom, then it shipped.. Was full package and all I had to do was plug it in and turn it on. Very plug and play if you tell Cliff ahead of time its for the Phantom. Oh also they are a DJI distro in the USA. So they hook these up to Phantoms all the time.

    If you order Call Cliff and let him know Phantom..

    Not sure if you wanted to get just the goggles or the RTF setup. I just purchased the RTF Predator V2 setup ($279) from Hobby King and it was not on back order.

    I can hardly contain my excitement... I also purchased a servo and the pan/tilt camera mount and the SpiroNet antenna pair. This is going to be too much fun!

    The RTF above is a plug-n-play for any flying aircraft including the Phantom. You only need the power supply from the balance plug of JST-HX type. It is a complete set but I ordered an extra battery for the goggles and the SpiroNet CP antenna set.

    the fatshark preditor V2 is about as "plug & play" as you'll probably find. connect camera to tx, attach voltage regulator to tx, attach antenna to tx, attach power to voltage regulator (to turn it on). attach the tx on the outside (right behind the gopro) and then run the wiring as you see fit. about as simple as it gets if you don't mind the wiring running around outside of the shell. it gets more complicated if you want it inside the shell only because you have to figure out how to run the wriring.

    some people mount the camera to the battery hatch (door). i bought a usb connector to gopro for it, so i now see what my gopro sees. there's next to no set up for the goggle - basically you just plug in the power and you are set.

    Got my Fat Shark Attitudes through ReadyMadeRC and service was quick and responsive. They are still in stock.
