    I have a phantom 1 and I would like to have an entry lvl FPV setup. For example 200-400ft range is perfectly fine with me. I would appreciate some suggestions on items I think I'll need below. Does a fatshark setup already have everything you need for FPV or does it require buying extra items?

    Camera - Go pro hero 3 black (already have this)
    Gimbal
    video transmitter
    Video reciever
    monitor or goggles
    Other - cable from gopro to transmitter, antennas

    A Fatshark setup will include a video transmitter, a video receiver built into Attitude SD Goggles (these are the ones I have), and two whip antennas. You will need to purchase a special cable to connect the video transmitter to your Go Pro Hero 3, though. You can purchase one here:

    I do not wear the goggles anymore, but I connect an external monitor to the goggles with the cable provided with the goggles.
