New FPV Multirotor Setup

New to FPV looking to purchase a RTF mid range setup was considering the following

QAV400 - http://www.getfpv.com/ready-to-fly-qav400-rtf.html
Naza-M V2 w/ GPS
4x Tiger Motor MT-2212-13 980kv
Carbon Fiber Landing Gear
Lumenier 5200mAh 4s 35c Lipo Battery
4x Graupner 8x5 props

FPV

FatShark Dominator Goggles
FatShark Goggle Lipo
FPV Manuals 600TV line FPV Camera
T1012 1000mW 1.2/1.3 GHz Transmitter V2 - Lawmate http://hobbywireless.com/cart/index....ee7473f5daa55f
R1200 - 1.2 - 1.3 GHz Standard High Sensitvity Receiver - http://hobbywireless.com/cart/index....ee7473f5daa55f
1.2 GHz 8 dBi Flat Patch Antenna - SMA Male Connector - http://www.l-com.com/wireless-antenn...male-connector
Go Pro Hero3+ as flight camera (in addition to FPV camera)

Reasons for the 1.2 GHz system:

I am in Singapore where there is buildings everywhere and 5.8GHz doesnt propagate well through buildings and there is wifi everywhere which is on the 2.4GHz range therefore interference on that range.

Expected range ~ 3km (FPV and control)

Questions:

I have no idea which RC transmitter to use, any suggestions for this range?

Personal recommendations of NAZA vs Open Pilot Revo

Is connecting a different flight controller easy (KK2.1)?

Is connecting a 1.2/1.3 tx/rx system to the camera and the goggles fairly simple?

Would the video quality of 1.2/1.3GHz system look alot worse than the 5.8 systems?

Is there weight issues with a GoPro and an FPV?

Is 2x 5200mAh feasible for increased flight time?

not sure how you would mount 2x lipos and it would be getting heavy.

I have one of these i use for filming and it creates crazy steady video.
Fully loaded with gopro your flight time wont be good.
Maybe look into a lighter quad if you want those long distance flights.
Naza is always the easiest to use. They have mac software now which is great.
apc props having been working well for me. Much cheaper so i can travel with spares.

Good luck
