    hi guys first post on this forum and am getting into the world of quadcopters and fpv I have some experience with a parrot ar drone 2.0, but will be getting a dji phantom v 1.1.1 for xmas. I am looking into setting it up for fpv slight. I was looking at the black pearl monitor im a bit confused what else would I need if I bought that to get setup in fpv and what sort of range would that provide? What I need aftermarket antennas if I wanted a range of about 1500 feet? just looking for some advice on the best way to get a full setup. Many thanks guys :)

    TBH I'm still pretty new to it and have taken it a little further each time. But this last weekend I took it beyond LOS (on accident) which was probably around 750 ft out and it still had a very clear picture. FPV saved me because I knew exactly where I was. Here's a video:

    Hey, I have DJI AVL58 connected to DJI FPV Hub so no soldering required then display is Feel World but everyone says Black Pearl is much better as has built in receiver. I think I need better antennas though as picture quality not great.

    If you buy the phantom 2 vision + then You won't have to buy any additional equipment, you would just use your cell phone as a monitor. . When I first bought my phantom I really didn't understand how everything worked so I bought some fatshark goggles, I actually like using the stock fpv versus the fatsharks . The fpv from the fatshark seemed a little choppy and it weighed down the phantom just a little bit. an other way I did it was use my phone as the monitor but send that feed to my goggles . Does that make sense ?i had to buy additional equipment to do it that way . The advantages of doing it that way is I am using the phantoms camera for the feed instead of mounting the fatshark camera , battery and antenna .
