Looking to get started in First Person View (FPV) with your DJI Phantom? The Fatshark Predator V2 system represents a great starter package that will have you enjoying FPV with your Phantom in no time. The system includes the Fatshark Predator video goggles, a video transmitter, and the video camera, all for under $300.  This system transmits video over 5.8ghz, so it won’t interfere with your 2.4ghz transmitter.  Fatshark claims the system is capable of a range of 1km, which is well beyond the normal limits of your transmitter, but we’ve already seen videos of people flying the DJI Phantom over 1km away with this system. The system also includes a carrying case, battery for the goggles, and even an A/V out cable so you can record the video from the ground.

Available at HobbyKing for $279.99

    Great stuff… thanks for doing it.

    Do I have to make the two cables for the video tx (one for go pro video and one for battery power). If so, what comes with the tx and what other parts to I need to buy and from where?

      You will have to make or buy the video cable that goes to the GoPro, but it depends on which GoPro model you have. As for power, the video transmitter will just plug into the balance port of your DJI Phantom battery. You will just need something to mount the video transmitter and camera to the DJI Phantom, you can use double sided foam tape or velcro from Home Depot or Lowes to make it easy and removable. Many mount the camera on the battery compartment lid and then cut a small notch on the battery lid to run the power and video cable inside the Phantom.
