    Hi all!

    First off a lot of great information here, thank you to everyone who is involved in making this an excellent place for knowledge.

    so.. I'm getting a phantom 2 h3 3d. I have been trying to figure out which fpv and transmitters and what have you. I've read and researched and to be honest I'm more lost now than when I started. I was thinking the black pearl 7" but than thought i might as well just get a predator v2 for about the same price.

    The big mystery to me is the transceiver/receiver combo. I started looking, "There's this gizmo that attaches to that gizmo and that gizmo connects to that one receiver gizmo" None of the descriptions really give clues to what it does really does or hooks up to, for the layman at least. It's racking my brain.

    Thus far on my purchase list:

    iosd mini
    fpv hub kit
    DJI AVL58 5.8 GHz Video Link Kit

    Do I still need the video link kit if i get the black pearl/predator? Any advice or help will be appreciated.
