fpv equipment wanted

Hi all! Update: so I'm basically looking for a 5.8 video transmitter/receiver between 300mw and up for use on my quad copter. This is my first fpv system and I'm looking for something with 3/4 mile range or more. Later I'll buy a longer range system
Please pm me with offers or post suggestions, thanks!

Unfortunately, just about anything worth having will surpass the range of a spektrum radio.
Typically 1.2-1.3 setups don't play nice with 2.4 radios.

5.8 will definitely work better with 2.4.

it is a good idea to run out of video link before your controle link, so i would think u could get away with 100-200mw 5.8ghz, plays well with 2.4rc, it might go a lil further than the rc link tho. keep your antennas as far apart on the plane, as possible . this should give you plenty for some park flyin fpv. there is one thing u should know before you start fpv, it is highly addictive!
