    First of all, sorry for my english, its not my native language.
    Well, im about to start with drones, and im amazed with what they can do. Im not in the "cheap" things, so the first thing i was choosing, is a good drone that i can afford, so i came to conclusion, that Phantom 2 (or 1) would be the right choice.
    After reading a LOT of articles and looking for a lot of kits, i got even more confused.

    So my huge doubt today, is about flying and seeing live (FPV ?) what im doing with the drone. this would be essencial for the use of what i want.

    I was thinking in buying an phantom 2 or 1, with an gopro , but for what i understand, i would need an wifi kit to see live what the drone was filming. this made me confused, since i saw a lot of low priced drones, that could do this.
    i saw that some phantom 2 comes with an camera, an 14 mp with gimbal stabilized camera. what i understood, is that these i can see live what the drone is doing, through an ios or android app.
    i was looking in BHphotovideo, and i saw this one:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1089995-REG/dji_cp_pt_000084r_phantom_2_vision_v2_0.html
    this, i think will have an live view, if i atatch the phone to the RC

    and this one:
    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1059969-REG/dji_phantom_1_1_1_with_gopro.html
    that i would need an wifi kit to make it work with live view, an i correct?

    And i know its offtopic, but i was also looking for an parrot bebop, that i also understood that comes with camera and a live view trough app, but it would worth?

    I know its a lot of questions, but there is a little know about drones in my country. hope i get some help

    Welcome to the party ruben,

    "and this one:

    that i would need an wifi kit to make it work with live view, an i correct?" Not a WiFi kit.
    You would need FPV, which is a transmitter and a receiver and a viewing screen.

    Welcome to the forum .
    Your first choice is a P2v (newest version) that bird is ready to go just add a cell phone it flys on 5.8 .
    The second choice is a P1 1.1.1 it flys on 2.4 so to get FPV you will need a few more things anywhere from $300 + for parts then you will have to do some work and you can not use a cell phone. With the P1 loaded your looking at around 6 min flight time .
    The P2v 14-18 min flight time no work ready to go just need the app .
    So P2v RTF . Flys on 5.8 & video comes in on 2.4 cell phone .
    The P1 flys on 2.4 if you want FPV it has to be on 5.8 (no cell phone or wifi) can be used you will need :
    5.8 transmitter
    Mini iosd ( optional) but recommended
    5.8 receiver/Monitor
    Good set of antennas
    Gimbal (optional)
    And some wiring and soldering .
    Give it some time I am sure someone else will post take a look around the forum read some threads a lot of great info & people here .
