    Have the Phantom 2 with the H32D gimbal and GoPro 3+ Black.

    Here is the upgrade list:

    - FPV Transmitter*
    - FPV Monitor**
    - 5.8 GHz Bluebeam Ultra Antenna Set (RHCP) IBCrazy
    - iOSD
    - Tarot Monitor mounting bracket
    - Futaba 14SG
    - Tradecraft Phantom 2 case

    *FPV Transmitter - Here are the two I am considering. Thoughts? Pros vs. Cons?
    - AVL 58 500mW Tx
    - Immersion 600mW Tx

    **FPV Monitor - While the Lilliput has better specs, I do like the Diversity antenna setup on the Black Pearl. Thoughts?
    - Lilliput 664/W 1280x800 400cd/m LED backlit screen 800:1 contrast
    - Black Pearl 7” 5.8ghz diversity monitor 1024x600 700:1 contrast

    I am potentially thinking of getting the SKYZONE FPV Goggles down the road, but according to the receiver channels on the spec sheet. either the immersion or avl transmitter will work.

    Thanks so much! Loving the Phantom. Appreciate all your help. Also, anything I'm missing or not thinking of?
