Show off / List your FPV Multi-rotor Setup

Hey all,

So I'm in the process of researching a ton of info to get my first FPV setup done with my witespy quad. That got me thinking that it would be nice to have a thread where people list out the details of their setups together with maybe a picture and video of it? I was thinking that we could keep it somewhat organized and on topic so that people can refer to what the latest and greatest setups are.

What do you guys think? Would any of you that have good FPV setups in a multi-rotor be up for posting the details on your setup?

I would suggest:

1. details on setup (TX/RX combo, camera used, batteries, mounts, copter details as well, goggles/LCD, etc)
2. total cost or how much you estimate it cost
3. pics and vids

I would be immensely grateful and hopefully others will find it useful as well. I searched in the FPV forum but that seems to be focused a lot on planes.

Cheers.

Put some more thought into it and might as well make a list that people can just fill in. Please let me know if we should add anything:

1. vTX/vRx model and specs
2. OSD model and specs if any
3. Battery setup (one main battery for motors and FPV or separate for each). specs on batteries
4. FPV camera model
5. Filters if any and where used
6. Goggles/LCD details
7. Base station battery setup and specs
8. Any other relevant details on FPV setup

then separately maybe

9. AUW of FPV setup
10. Frame type and model
11. Ballpark cost
12. Pics and Vids

Did you use the same 3s 2200mAh to power the motor(s) as well? How much flight time would you get out of it? 10min?
