    I just got my FS Predator V2 setup and was wondering if I could link a FPV RX to my laptop. I have a Sony Vaio that has an HDMI port. If it's possible what receiver should I use? The idea is for me to se the goggles while other can watch the laptop monitor.

    Check my diagram around that option:

    You could use HDMI (pricey choice), UBS (great and cheaper) or PCI xpress Card (just HiTech Laptop can use it):

    I found this on ebay

    I'd be interested in that option, cause sometimes the goggles don't let you see what is behind the phantom.
