    My plan is to use the Gopro3 black for FPV in combination with the predator goggles, first of all i was a bit disappointed when i first looked trough the goggles, the picture was really small and not sharp at all, the picture was very dark. Maybe this is cause of the really poor fatshark quality of the screens they use, my pradator goggle has blue edges around the LCD screens and you can hardly see the data of the mini iOSD, especially the number of Sat's in the upper right corner is totally blurred.

    So i guess thats normal with fatshark goggles but my question is will the TVL600 mini Cmos camera from fatshark deliver a better live picture then my gopro3 black? I couldnt test the TVL600 cause the cable was broken out of the box.

    Once you shove the picture through a PAL/NTSC video tx the quality degrades so much anyway that any differences in quality will be imperceptible.
    Saying that, the TVL will have a smaller field of view and so the image will be less distorted.
