    I think I achieved my goal, to help the community. Now it is only up to us to spread the word about it and use it.

    So said, here is an overview based on 23 answers. It seems clear that there is a standard setup preferred by every FPV owner.

    You should add the Lilliput 664w monitor.

    Thats looking good so far. You should really expand it a little more as a lot of the technical information that people may be looking for is missing.... after all it's an FPV Survey :)

    So:

    What Video Transmitter are you using?
    ImmersionRC 600mw
    Fatshark 250mw
    AVL58 500mw
    Boscam TS352
    etc... etc...


    What Video Receiver are you using?
    Receiver is built into Monitor
    AVL58
    Boscam RC305
    ImmersionRC Uno5800
    etc... etc...


    Tranmitter Antenna?
    One supplied with vTX
    Generic Cloverleaf
    Fatshark Spironet
    IBCrazy Pinwheel
    Skew-Planar Wheel
    Rubber Duckie
    etc... etc...


    Receiver Antenna(e)?
    Generic Cloverleaf
    Fatshark Spironet
    IBCrazy Pinwheel
    Skew-Planar Wheel
    Helical
    Patch
    Rubber Duckie
    etc... etc...


    What's the maximum range you've achieved with your FPV setup
    < 200m
    > 200m < 500m
    > 500m < 750m
    >750m < 1000m
    >1000m < 2000m
    >2000m


    Also on your monitor's section, merge Flysight and Black Pearl. They are one and the same.

    Nice work so far :)
