    Is there any way I can mount my gopro for recording video and FC40 camera at the same time? I want FPV and GoPro at the same time. I am looking for something like a side by side mount for the cams. If it is possible, I don't want it to make it so I can't fit it in my case with the mount on.

    Thanks so much

    Sure, you will just need to learn about a bit of wiring and FPV basics. You can use the mini USB port on the side of the GoPro for the video out, that goes to your video transmitter, which can be powered by tapping into your battery solder points inside your unit (or a small stand alone battery). Then you need some goggles or a receiver with a screen to view the downlink. Doing it yourself FPV setup has a bit of a learning curve, but you will be better off for it :)
