Currently just the gopro mounted on the Exi 450 helicopter.

I'm getting MUCH better at flying the darn thing. Especially in tight quarters (except for that incident with the tree the other day...) and at altitude.

I do have a 200 mw FPV system sitting on the bench, but I don't trust the helicopter enough at the moment to use it. With a plane, if you lose signal for a moment, you can coax it around to where you pick it up again. With the helicopter, it loves to try to beat itself against the ground. The higher up the better, it takes that as a challenge as to how fast it can make it back down to -AGL.
