    I think that it might be a bit heavy for it. The battery life on the P1 already sucks, so it would probably make it even worse.
    I would get a p2 before thinking about FPV, or a p3 and get the whole system

    Hm'kay,
    But what do you think about the system itself ? Could it work well ?

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to the Phantom Pilots forum. I hope that you will take advantage of the benefits that come with membership and that you will be able to use the forum for the exchange of innovative ideas and as a resource for current developments in Phantom quadcopter’s.

    You could set it up like that but I would compare that cost to a Phantom 3 Standard which is a self contained, current system with many app options. You would also have full camera controls vs none with the FC40 once you lift off. If you go for the FC40 setup I would suggest a monitor with built in diversity receiver to simplify the system. Were you planning on a gimbal?

    Hi LuvMyTJ ! Thanks !

    I already buy a second hand FC40 for a good price with some accesories, so buy a Phantom 3 will cost much for me than buy that kind of system :D

    About the gimbal system i'll try to 3D print a non-motored one by myself, and may think about buy one if it doesn't work
