    Hello all, I am looking to buy a FPV setup for my Phantom 2. I have been reading in the forum for some tim e but quickly learned there is so much information scattered all over the place that it is difficult to sort.

    Here is what I would like (if possible)

    1. Complete system including monitor (not goggles)
    2. Whatever I need to connect to the Phantom
    3. On screen display (altitude, direction, etc.)
    4. Perhaps a monitor that has an internal battery that I can just plug in rather than attach a battery to the outside
    5. NO SOLDER SOLUTION (I am not the kind of guy to mess with the internals of this thing)
    6. A monitor that attaches to the controller rather than a tripod
    7. A monitor that has a crisp, clear HD picture

    Can anyone provide a link to where I can get all that in one shot? How much should I expect to spend?

    Sorry for what I am sure are questions that have been asked many times over, but again, sorting to the threads for this is absolutely mind-numbing. Why there doesn't seem to be a sticky on this topic is beyond me.

    Mind sharing that pm?

    With the ground station tools in mind, as well.

    Appreciated!

    Oh...I have a vision, though. (What a sentence.)

    I have a p2z. Gopro 3+ black
    I purchased and installed no soldering:
    1) iosd mini-- for on screen display
    2) dji fpv hub-- plug and play all dji products into this hub
    3) boscam display/receiver and dji transmitter bundle from uavproducts.com

    That's it. Connect as per dji fpv hub directions.

    Thank you for your reply... I noticed that monitor has 2 antenna. Should they both be replaced with the upgraded ones that come with the transmitter? So 3 antennas total?

    I only replace my tx and one of the rx antenna on the boscam. The boscam finds the best signal on either antenna. I haven't tested yet.

    There's a complete system in the first post here: viewtopic.php?t=8066#p65998

    I ended up buying the DJI system, the AVL58 and a monitor.
