Depends on how far you wanting to go. From where you are 200mw will get you a good distance. And most will work with a dragon v2 system.

Since you are new to fpv. Start out very short distance for a bunch of flights, less than 1 km then progress farther out as you feel comfortable.

I took my small wing out 5 miles! (new distance record for me but only came back 4 miles , different story, but I found it, very little damage )
Also showing how far you can go with 200 mw tx, and a directional antenna.

4.9 miles
854 feet high
61% rssi
Flying from inside my house, small DL antenna, low power

200 mw 1.2 vid TX

1.2 TX antenna:

on channel 1 of diversity
4 channel 1.2 vid RX

Yagi RX antenna


on channel 2 of diversity
900-1.3 RX

BiQuad 11dbi antenna I made


I was testing to see which rx antenna worked better, but so far they seem pretty close.

I may still swap receivers and repeat to see if that makes a difference.

that does not sound very good.

I had a fat shark clover leaf V1 on a 200 mw 5.8 tx
and a V1 skew planar wheel on the RX

V2 is here:
https://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/...a_V2_SMA_.html

with this setup I got 1.75 miles

I will say though, that I tried a couple of different RX's though, 2 with the diversity built in, and many did not get that range. It is like they are a slightly different frequency, and actually pick up the TX on 2 different channels (they are the ones with a lot of channels) bu that the RIGHT channel is in between those 2.
