Flying FPV with camera is great for making accurate 'around' shots etc.. Also because it slowly changes your brain in that of a bird..
Hardhat, I'm just using the gopro battery. My flights are short and I'm not worried about the battery running low. You can always power the gopro with a 5v source, through the usb connection on the gopro. When the weather gets better, I'll add the nav and gps boards. If I lose the vid signal, just engage RTH. Not sure if I'll need an OSD for the flying I'll do.

Brian.
