DJI Phantom - FPV Setup - Suggestions?

I have bought a DJI Phantom (original - not the 2 or FC 40).

I am very interested in FPV flight using a 7" lcd monitor. I've read/searched until I'm blue in the face - and wanted to see if there's any other ideas/opinions on the subject.

I don't plan on flying anywhere too crazy - more interested in looking around high above me and flying in FPV. I'm not very good at soldering, so more interested in a plug and play setup - although splicing of wires doesn't bother too much.

Looking for ideas and links to stores that have known good reputations if you have them.

Thanks and I'll be monitoring the thread - appreciate the help!

You should get the fatshark 5.8 setup and a ham license ready to go for the details you wanted.

Thanks for the info Branflakes!

Is a ham radio license preferred or is it required?

As far as the Fatshark 5.8 setup - I'd rather use a monitor, so should I just get the TX and then what receiver to connect to a monitor?

Appreciate the help!
