    I am upgrading to the Phantom 2 and H3 3D soon and have decided on using the Black Pearl 7" monitor rather than my Fatshark Predator V2 setup. I am having trouble figuring out what all I need and the best products to get the job done. I am not big on soldering, I don't mind doing it, but prefer plug & play. If anyone has any better suggestions I am happy to listen.

    I have a few questions concerning this.

    This is the monitor I am planning to purchase. Black Pearl 7" LCD Screen FPV Diversity Rx 5.8GHz slim design with integrated battery

    Which of these transmitters would be best?

    Immersion 600mw Tx with Plug and Play Cable: DJI Phantom 2 to iOSD Mini and Fat Shark/ImmersionRC Transmitter

    or

    BOSCAM TS353 5.8G 400mW AV Transmitter


    Which antennas are best? I currently have some Spironet antennas. Would these work with the above or should I get something else?

    Sorry for all the questions!

    Hi,

    I have the Phantom 2 with the Immersion 600mw Tx and Black Pearl diversity receiver / monitor. I use Spironet antennas. I am able to get up to 2.5km range but I'm also investigating a better selection of antennas, perhaps a directional patch antenna. I love the set up I use, it's very reliable.
