    I'm going to be purchasing my first phantom tomorrow. Its going to be a Phantom 2 with the HD-3D gimbal. The place I'm going to has an FPV package for about $480. If I'm not mistaken I think I can piece together a better package for less on my own. Can someone in the know let me know if the below is everything I would need to get my FPV working?

    iOSD:
    http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/DJI-iOSD-Mini-for-Phantom-and-Wookong.html $69.95

    Transmitter:
    http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/5.8GHz-Audio-Video-Transmitter-600mW.html $69.95

    IOSD to Transmitter Cable:
    http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/Video-Ca...SD-Mini-and-Zenmuse-ImmersionRC-FatShark.html $9.99

    Black Pearl:
    http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/Black-Pearl-7-LCD-Monitor-with-5.8GHz-Diversity-Rx-7-Channel.html SALE $199.99

    Total: $349.88

    Am I missing anything?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Antennas? A balanced set of 3 is best. Make sure they are the right fitting for the BP. The stock rubber ducks will give you disappointing range. I haven't checked the links as not much time at the mo...as usual!
