    Got myself a new toy, I really wanted some FPV glasses, but didnt want to have to keep slipping them on and off depending if i wanted to watch the quad itself or not, So problem solved...

    What do you think... It can also be mounted on a tripod, and comes with a sun screen.

    I'm interested in the same setup. Please update on what you think about it. What do you plan to use for a cam??

    Mount seems nice enough. Would be nice to know who made it? The model? Where you got it? Was it a package or did you piece it together? Did it come with the cables to connect to your Hero 3?

    Here are the specs on the monitor itself.

    I was about to pull the trigger on an ImmersionRC setup last week, well pre-order as its been out of stock for a long time.

    Now that the Phantom Vision has been announced I think I'm going to try that out, I already have an ipad which I can use as the FPV screen.

    Have you seen any specs on distance yet Adam? I'm having a hard time believing it will be good for more than a 100 feet and the bandwidth is going to drop with distance which means latency will go up.
