    I have a Phantom v1.1.1 and I am using it with my GoPro hero 3. I need a Gimbal with a FPV. What kind of Gimbal and FPV should I get? I am confused by all the different types. I am a newby trying to make the best for what I got.
    thanks for your time. Shawn

    I would get the ebay gimbal. just type in phantom gimbal on ebay. they usually run 90-100$. they work great as long as you set them up right. every once and a while mine will freak out mid flight so i just land and restart. When you buy the FPV, make SURE that you buy 5.8ghz rather than 2.4ghz. the phantom controller runs off of 2.4 so if you had a camera signal on 2.4, it would fly away.

    I recently bought a whole gimbal and fpv set. heres what i bought

    ebay gimbal - http://www.ebay.com/itm/USA-DJI-Phantom ... 1305161058

    FPV SET- http://hobbywireless.com/58-ghz-systems ... p-726.html

    LCD screen- http://www.amazon.com/3-5-Inch-TFT-Moni ... s=mini+lcd

    and then i just found a 12V battery to power the screen and FPV reciever

    hope this helps
