    Hello, Im new at FPV actually its my next upgrade, so I need help.

    What I got:
    Phantom V.1.1.1
    GoPro 3
    Prop Guards
    Gimbal with Tilt control + Mount

    What I need is FPV so I got this questions:

    1.Can I use my iPhone 5S as a monitor? If possible what do I need? what parts and the cheapest.

    2. If not possible to use iphone its better a monitor or a fat shark? Im looking to spend the less possible. What can I buy for this?

    Regards, and thanks!!

    Well I have a P2V and love the iOS app on my 5s.
    But there is no way I can find to send the video to goggles :-(

    Since you have the first phantom I think your best bet is to get FPV system that doesn't use the iPhone.

    There are a lot of OSD transmitters that can use the go pro video out.
    That will give you a lot of data. it all depends on how much you want to spend.
    I have seen complete systems for $500.00+

    I am sure that there ar ethers here that have more experience than I in this area.

    If I were you I would just do a lot of research and google every kind of FPV system.
    Fat shark seems to be the defacto for FPV goggles.
    as for OSD transmitters you have a lot of choices.
    Good luck.
