    Hi everyone, I know these posts pop up a lot. But I would really appreciate if some people with FPV experience can look my possible build over and give me some feedback. I am a novice at all of this, so obviously I am looking for zero soldering at a modest cost.

    I currently have a P2 with H3-3D and GoPro Hero 3 Silver. For the FPV system, I was thinking:

    Boscam RX-LCD5802: http://www.amazon.com/Boscam-RX-LCD5802-Diversity-Receiver-Monitor/dp/B00ISOREEU

    Boscam TS351+RC805 5.8G FPV 200mW AV Transmitter: http://www.amazon.com/Boscam-TS351-RC805-Transmitter-Receiver/dp/B00GGC60N2

    Monitor Mount: http://www.raveaerialvideo.com/product/dji-monitor-mount/

    Plug-n-play wires: http://www.dpcav.com/xcart/Video-Ca...SD-Mini-and-Zenmuse-ImmersionRC-FatShark.html

    And the DJI iOSD. A few questions I have are: Is this all compatible? Do I need to buy different antennas, or will these work for about 200-300m LOS? It seems the transmitter will be pulling power from the P2, is there another option for a transmitter that has its own power? I currently have one battery for the P2 so I would rather not pull excess power from it. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Close, not quite right...

    The LCD 5802 is a good choice. It already has a receiver so you only need a transmitter (your link to the TS351 includes a receiver which is not needed).
    You will probably want an iosd mini for telemetry as well.
    You could drop the plug and play kit if you posses the ability to join wires.
    I think this bracket is nicer http://www.amazon.com/RioRand-Alumi...3109551&sr=1-1&keywords=phantom+monitor+mount

    Standard rubber duck antennas will be fine for a few hundred metres

    You could add further batteries to power the transmitter but realistically 200mw wont make much difference.

    Thanks for the reply, I'd rather not join any wires so I don't mind buying the kit. I mainly wanted to make sure there weren't any components missing for a full FPV system.

    Can anyone recommend a Tx without an Rx that is compatible with the LCD 5802?

    Get the Boscam LCD5802, immersion or the fat shark TX which ever wattage you want from 25 - 600mw, plug n play cable and the mini iOSD.
