If you have a Slowstick then that would probably be the best way to get your feet wet in FPV.

Just buy your FPV gear and fly the heck out of that Slowstick with it - the good thing about the Slowstick is that everything happens so (wait for it...) slow that it's really easy to get started flying FPV on one. It's what I did.

Then you can build a Hercules or Deep Reaper while you get used to the new perspective and all the extra electronics and failure modes and just transfer your video gear over when you're comfortable flying FPV.

You could be flying and learning FPV while building your 'real' FPV plane and maybe making your beginner mistakes on the (disposable) 'Stick.
