    Hello,

    I recently bought the Phantom 2 with Zenmuse H3-3D gimbal. I've installed the gimbal board inside of my phantom, I've hooked up the gopro 3 black, and done a few test flights. Looking to add FPV.

    I have a SmallHD AC7 that I use on my Canon DSLR for my video production work. I'd like to be able to use this monitor as a fpv monitor.

    Looking to purchase the DJI AVL58 lite video transmitter or a similar transmitter. I like this transmitter because I can plug it directly into the power source on my phantom without having to cut and solder any wires.

    However, when it comes to adding the receiver to my SmallHD monitor. What would you recommend? I have inputs for HDMI, component, composite.
    Thanks!

    " I have inputs for HDMI, component, composite. "
    Which are in decreasing order of quality. I don't think you will find many video receivers that output HDMI, but most do component output. Composite is the worst because of it's limited bandwidth.
