    Just bought a DJI Phantom 2 with H3-2D from B&H.

    I'd like purchase an FPV system, but have some questions:

    Is there a monitor that would mount on controller that would be around 7", built-in battery, 5.8Ghz, and also have a DVR? I've seen some like below, but doesn't seem to have a built in battery. I think it would be nice to have everything on the controller.

    What's the different between IOSD Mark II and IOSD Mini? I was thinking of getting the Mini.

    Looking at the ImmersionRC 5.8Ghz Audio/Video Transmitter.

    Are there cables available the make the hookup easy? I heard someone mention the newer models don't need?

    Thanks all, appreciate the help!

    http://www.firstpersonview.com / http://www.firstpersonview.co.uk has a number of cables to connect various FPV transmitters to DJI gear.

    I haven't seen a monitor with all the features you (and many people) want...you can get everything but DVR in one unit, or everything but a built-in battery, but I have yet to find one with all those. It could exist though, and if you find one please share the source!

    The iOSD mkII provides 2 main features over the iOSD mini:
    -Input switching that lets you use a spare channel on your receiver to choose between two video sources (cameras).
    -Built-in PMU that lets the iOSD provide the proper voltage to power most standard FPV cameras.

    Found one... wish it was 7" though.

    Anyone have a recommendation on controller mount for screen?
    Will the iOSD Mini work for most? Don't think I'll have two cameras.
    Will ImmersionRC 5.8Ghz Audio/Video Transmitter work with LCD screen?

    Yeah that would be too small for my tastes. The stats on that page show the brightness as 200cd/m(sq), which sounds awfully low to me, that's less than half what my 8" monitor puts out.
