That depends on where you live and how far you plan to fly from the ground station.

Ok, you can go with a low output video transmitter like a 100 to 200MW transmitter. I would go with a 900mhz VTX, they have the best RF propagation so if a tree or something gets in between you and the VTX the signal may still be usable.

Check to see which frequencies are legal where you live.
