    I'm trying to decide which FPV system to go with. There seem to be so many choices out there. I'd prefer something as close to plug n play as possible. Obviously, I'd like lighter weight as well. But I don't want to break the bank. :) I also need a HUD system along with it.

    What suggestions do you all have?

    Thanks in advance.

    Oh, I've got a DJ1 and GPH3 and just got the Tarot 2-d gimbal.

    Search around here a bit. There a UK outfit that sells the plug n play harness if you can't solder. If you can its super easy to do. There is a video I have posted here by a YT'er that shows it step by step.
    I went with a Skyzone Sky-702 monitor/receiver (no blue screen, very important), an Immersion 600 mW tx, Zenmuse gimbal with GoPro H3 BLK, and the DJI iOSD for data which I record on my MacBook Air.

    My days of soldering are way past me. I don't even have anything for that any longer. I'm really looking for something which works out of the box without soldering. I know there will be some assembly though.

    I took my phantom to Hobby Town and they soldered some stuff for me for $2. :)
