If I was starting from scratch as a newbie...

FPV Set-up for NEWBIES

OK, there are a lot of people experimenting with FPV set-ups.
For those of us who just want an economical, start w/o expending too many brain cells here's what you need:

The Plane:

Skysurfer RTF

Set-it up for 3ch operation. Use the fourth channel to panning the camera.

The Video Gear:

5.8 Ghz Video Link

Camera. Mount it on the canopy or a full sized servo built into the canopy for pan.

Video Goggles

Get some ideas at the bottom of this page on how you put it together...Any questions, just PM me...or reply to this thread...

There you have it! This should give you a bird that'll get you started right away. Not so fast to get you in trouble. Light, if you crash. Lots of endurance, up to 30 minutes depending on how you fly.

Hope this helps.
