    I am looking at setting up a FPV set up on my Phantom. I have thought about the Fatshark set up because it has everything you need and seems to be pretty well plug and play. I dont plan on doing anything to long distance and price is more of a concern than anything (dont want the wifey to see a LARGE chunk of $ missing LOL). I would like to stay in the $300-$350 range if possible.

    Here is what i have so far
    Phantom 1.1.1
    GL-2X gimbal (its not on the phantom yet but should be this week)
    Go-Pro hero 3

    From what i see if i go with Fatshark this would do what i need ( http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-FatShark-Pr ... 43cb5f71bc ).

    Then some spironet antenna like these - http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... _sma_.html

    Then i would need a cable to go from the gopro to the FPV TX correct? Also i dont really see the point of powering the gopro via the phantom. The gopro battery lasts a LONG time. The phantom is already short flight times with all that crap so why shorten it more???

    Im not set on the Fatshark but i think i do want goggles. So if you have any other suggestions Im definitely willing to hear other options. Like maybe there is one that offers better bang for the buck? Just looking to try to build my shopping list as i will probably order some stuff in the next couple weeks for it. Thanks in advance....
