Question
fpv cost

Hey guys,

I just bought a HK teksumo and I have seen that it's a good wing for FPV. I already have a d2826 2200kv motor, a plush 40a esc, a AR400 spektrum receiver and some 2200mah 3s batteries.

I don't have any fpv equipment yet but I've been interested in making my teksumo a fpv wing.

Can anyone give me a serious idea on what it would cost to make a entire decent fpv set up with goggles or the cyplops style head units? I don't want a exposed screen like a lab top screen or similar.
I just want to know if it's something I can do right now or if I should wait ($$$). Thanks guys

$300 on the low side and $700-900 for "fancy" setup.

By the tone of your question it appears you haven't done much research on the RCG threads. If you start your research here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1567954
it will assist you in determining the what you can/cannot afford based on your setup (additional research). It will also make you more knowledgeable hobbyist. (Although FPV is very addictive and can be expensive but, its a blast.)

Thanks guys, I read that and understand what it says.
I know it's almost required but I don't want to spend countless hours researching lol

The guys that I fly my current planes don't do fpv from what I know .
I just hope i can find the transmitter antenna and the same for my teksumo equipment already made local or close somewhat. I'll start looking....
