    I just purchased the Phantom 2 w/gimbal and it will arrive tomorrow. I flew RC back in the early 80's and I am amazed at how far they have come.

    My question is what all do I need to purchase to use goggles and have the heads up display (OSD) for flying my Phantom 2? Here is a list of what I think I would need but do not know if this is correct.

    Fat Shark Dominator HD goggles (soon to be released)
    Fat Shark 600 TVL camera
    Immersionrc EZOSD
    Boscam 5.8ghz polarized antenna's

    Any help would be appreciated so I can get this right the first time.

    That all looks good with the exception of the EZOSD, that won't connect to the P2 battery. You'd be better off going with the iOSD mini for that, but otherwise the equipment you have listed should be fine. I assume the FatShark kit you got also came with the Transmitter in addition to the camera?

    You can use the FatShark camera for FPV if you want, but you can also use the output from the gopro if you want to save weight/wiring.

    The only thing I have bought so far is the Phantom 2. Do I also need to buy a transmiter for the iOSD Mini?

    No, the iOSD mini will just insert its data on to the video stream from the camera to the fatshark transmitter.
