FPV set up Recommendations
I want to get an fpv set up. I have spent hours looking at rx and receivers, reading these threads and i still feel overwhelmed. what would you recommend? i am using a spectrum dx7 and would like to use 900mhz. I see all of these 1000mw rx and receivers for around 200$ and 500mw for around 100$ and cameras for around 100. What else would i have to buy to get these running? Lipos? power adapters? larger antenas?

I plan on flying within a mile or so and dont need anything to fancy?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

should i not?

I looked at that one but the one I have picked out has filters installed to reduce interferance. I figure if I was going to drop the money I was going to go all out on the TX and RX. Camera's look like they are easy to replace...TX are too big of an investmate to play the game of replacing them since I doubt there is going to be any major improvements in 900mhz.

I am going to be using this in the middle of no where so am not as worried about interference,

the interferance is from the other items on the plane... IE the TX messing up the GPS or radio RX...or servos

That is one big arse 900Mhz TX and antenna what does that set up weigh. This is what I have and I love it.

Tarro's link is the one I am getting. If you read the description it has the fitlers and they test all their TX and RX before they ship them to make sure they work within specs.
