I would buy the Fatshark 5.8ghz receiver module to start. You need that to receive the video from the plane or multi. Next I'd buy an Immersionrc 600mw Video transmitter. Also for the antennas, to start out with, buy the Immersionrc spironet 5.8ghz antennas. Pretty nice antennas for the money. Then upgrade tot he video aireal systems 5.8ghz antennas. We've conducted tests to see which brand is better and we came out with the conclusion is that the VAS is more specifally tuned/built to match the 5.8ghz band better making it a better antenna. The reason I tell you to go with the Spironets is because they have protecive domes on the antennas lobes to protect from crashes. Plus they really arent bad antennas, their just not as good as the VAS ones.

For your camera. I would buy the Fatshark 600tvl CMOS camera. It's tuned to fly FPV. It does have a CMOS sensor in it which lacks the quality of a CCD sensor. The reason I'm telling you to get the Fatshark camera is because it comes with a plug that fits directly with the Video transmitter. Once you get more comfortable soldering, buy a Sony 600tvl PZ0420 CCD camera. It does require a 12v power source so you can either run it off of a 3s lipo or you will need a 12v BEC to run it.

Heres all of the links that I talked about

I'm also starting to research , all items needed to complete the dominators v2.

Its a toss up, was all settled on getting the attitudes v2, and now I've been reading up on the dom's.

currently ordered the helipal storm racing drone, which might get here some time next week.

thanks in advance for any additional advice
