They've got this in stock http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...cl_Tx_Rx_.html or is this not as good? I've checked Bevrc too, what other sites do you guys recommend?

Hi Lewis,
I have for sale a brand new set, never used, identical to the one of your link. We bought two, one for me and one for my business partner but in the end I went with different goggles (cinemizers) that I saw someone using at a meet. PM me if interested and I'm sure we can agree on a fair price.

Hi Lewis, good to hear from you, I'm the shaggy hair'd bloke who let you have a go on my quad. It was good to meet you, I've had no issues with YouTube recently. Any questions just give us a shout.

Don't worry about all those questions Lewis, we all had to learn, I still am.

What control frequency are you using on your ES2? If its 2.4ghz then beware that it may not mix nicely with 2.4ghz video. If you have a UHF radio then all as good, take Angelos up in his offer and save the wait and import duty. There is loads if info about what frequencies work well together and what to avoid on the forum.

Like i said in the pub, just take your time, do your research first, then if your worried ask before you buy. I know you were asking for a full 'kit list' to copy from someone, problem is everyone has different requirements, budgets, goals, experience, location and personal opinion. This makes all of our setups unique to us and maybe completely wrong for anyone else, thats why off the shelf systems are so very rare in FPV.

Best of luck and we'll help you along the way.

Good points Wayne. Your flying style will also effect you choice. I like to loyter close to where I'm sat at an average altitude. Maby to a couple of flybys. Whereas dallibab likes to move with nothing less than 60 amps at an altitude of 2 ft AGL . RCM likes gliding at high altitude. Stealthworks isn't happy unless his plane is in another county :P. all of these setups demand a slightly different setup. The fat sharks will get you on your feet with the easystar. And you'll figure out what you like.

HD keychain cam A/V out

Anyone tried one of the new keychain cams yet?

Only 25 quid

I have used the version without the AV. It records ok video for the price but it is sometimes temperamental... for example we have found it switched off at the end of the flight although it still had charge.

The AV is interesting as a secondary camera perhaps with an AV switch but I would not trust it as the only camera for flying.

like they say
you gets what you pay for.
You can't expect much for that sort of dosh.

But they are a good starting place
I think over the years I've had them all.

Just got the latest jumbo keyfob cam which is full 1080 30fps or 720 at 60fps.
The quality is great but like them all you need good sun light and no vibrations. they are about 40 on ebay.

things are ultra quiet too here.... not a whisper from the main office...but I am like a doctor on call, waiting for the next phone call (landline) so I cannot move.

you never know, the way things are, there might be a P45 in the post soon, the consultation process has been started.
