This may have been asked before in one way or another but I can't get my head around it with all the information scattered all over. First, a little background so you answer my questions appropriately: 1) I'm an FAA certified Private Pilot with about 100 hours of flight time 2) I'm a Storage Engineer (Data, backups, IT, etc) 3) I have built and flown an RC plane in the past (Spirit Sailplane 2Meters with a 6 channel Futaba EX) Goals with drones: Short term: To use a Phantom 2 to get used to the technology, test systems, and become familiar with all the systems around it. Medium term: to built a drone using a kit (I bought an F550 frame) and I have the iOSD from the Phantom. Eventually, my F550 will be my main drone. Long term: To design and built my own drone from scratch in partnership with a friend of mine who's an aerospace engineer. Ok, now to the drone questions: I bought a Phantom 2 v2 with the gimbal and an iOSD module. My short term goal as stated above is to get familiar with the systems, but ultimately, I don't want to do any flying using the remote. All the flying would be done using a ground station. So my first question is, What do I need extra to use ground station (PC edition) connected to my Phantom 2? I have the iOSD but I know I need an FPV also. is FatShark the best option out there? what's recommended? My goal is to fly 2-3 miles away and still have telemetry and maybe video. How can I achieve that? Thank you in advance. Safe flights!
