Need some practical advice on FPV & OSD

I have decided to buy Fat Shark Predator RTF FPV Headset System w/Camera and 5.8G TX from HK (any buddy coded for me?)

I have read i may need to buy a better VTX with 200 or 600mw ..
(is this correct? unfortunately backorder now ...

Assuming i m ok with predator (though i m sure Dominator is better)

Then i would like to see some info thru the goggle ... OSD?

What would be the easiest and good to have? technically i m NEW.
things like where is home, distance from home? height? speed? voltage?
mayb not all is important, mayb you can recommend.

I am on turnigy 9x, modded to er9x with frsky tx diy module
flying a dji naza quad 450, with gps and often with a gopro.

Do i need this 5.8GHz Circular Polarized spiroNet Antenna too?

Pls spare me a minute or so .. a little from U guys with experience helps a great deal.

I'm new to FPV too, but I do know, from other projects, that the Circular Polarized antenna's will be far better than the standard di-polar antenna's. Well worth the price IMO.

Hi there, i would suggest you get a Remzibi osd with gps from Himodel, if you are that kind of man who would spend alot of money, then get the EZosd from hobbyking start from there and buy the uhf system then the antenna tracker and so on so fort,

for the antenna, make it your self, trust me its worth it ive made about 8 of this antennas on different fqs, and you will defenitly need this for your predator, get the predator set, its the cheapest and probably the easiest, but for me i got my self the 200mw too. as its the best out there, get the 600mw if you want from immersion. i just dont see this one working for me, and i would stay for 200mw

yeah get predator from hobbyking, you would get 100mw tx and a camera too.

for remzibi with gps, you will get home arrow, home distance, and everything you need. download remzibi config and you would see how much it can provide you , its the best. and the remzibis gps from himodel has alot of use, i used it on my rabbit and crius boards

you get better video quality etc, if you use a separate battery

i dont know how that works but, xD i dont record using my fpv, its not just good for me. my canon uses its own battery itself, so i dont to worry about that one

and i guess gopro users dont use same battery right? it uses itselfs. i dont know, never had gopro
