    Hi everyone.

    I'm new to this site and also the Phantom 2 which I picked up last week.
    I've had successful tests flights so far and really enjoying shooting video with it on the GoPro 3, I love the possibilities of shooting coming as a travel photographer.

    Here's a screen grab of the video (2nd flight) I took, I didn't realise this morning I can shoot stills & video on my GoPro 3, but only in 1080p, probably why I missed it as I shot this in 2.7k.

    I purchased the Phantom 2 + H3-2D Combo from Heliguy and they was really helpful.
    however I wished I bought the full package with the FPV included.

    So I purchased these yesterday from Helipal and hope I've not made a mistake?

    Products:
    1 x DJIP2-28 DJI Phantom 2 Propeller Guard
    1 x DJIPV-03 DJI Phantom 2 / Phantom 2 Vision Self-tightening Prop.
    1 x Storm All-in-One FPV Combo (Deluxe)
    - GoPro Camera Cable: GoPro Hero 3 Cable
    1 x DJIPV-01A DJI Phantom 2 / Phantom 2 Vision Spare Battery Combo

    I went for the Storm All in one as I liked the look of the Monitor but I have read online a couple of problems with the package from these guys? is there anyone with the same package or can guide me into a smooth build when it arrives.

    I'm no stranger to RC's and twiddling my thumbs (gaming) but obviously I want a smooth transition into FPV and the right gear to use commercially (looking to get trained and certified also, so any advice would be great too on this)

    thanks for your replies in advance.

    is there anyone that can advise?
    or at least when the package does arrive the best way to set it all up?
