I was looking at the specs in the advert for the transmitter... didn't someone say, or I read maybe, that you can jack a pair of goggles into the transmitter? Or did I just imagine that? Was wondering if it was possible, what would be compatible.

Most important thing is to get the right 5.8ghz gear that uses the same frequency as the Walkera system.

Agreed. I'm going to check and then double check before getting anything. I've made enough mistakes in compatibility in the past to know you speak the truth on that one.

Planning on ordering the f7 and FPV LB after Jan 1st , assuming they are widely available? Then going from there on the goggles in the future

Is the new fpv ladybird camera powered by the main lipo power? If so, are they using some type of filtering on the line to take noise from the motors out of the video?

I dont have the walkera fpv setup, but I tried my own on the ladybird v1 and if you share the battery it kills the signal completely. They must have some kind of filtering... I'd like to know what it is...

Yup it's powered by the main battery. i don't think there is any filter since the FPV gear hooks up to the extra port on the FC. When flying you can see the screen glitch. I thought it was normal for the FPV setup, but my buddy pointed out that it needs a filter to block the noise.

well, if you can actually still see something on the screen, that means they did filter it. On mine it just totally went crazy horizontal lines, cant see a thing, nada.

PicoFly (his nick on RCG) mentioned that 95% of the lines (noise) is removed when a Pololu voltage regulator with a 1000uf 6.3v capacitor on the regulator's output wires, is added between the vTx and the flight battery pack. I haven't really tried this myself to verify it though. The cap is 1g and the Pololu is another gramme so it's the same as having a separate 2g battery.

XJet (his nick on YouTube) posted some great vids on how to do the FPV mod on the ladybird.

Here's a recent FPV flight video of my own homebrew FPV-ladybird.

You do not need to have a filter but a power boost... that is the secret: power the fpv gear at 5V

i do have the 5v boost regulator (not installed though), but i doubt it will work as well as just having it run on a seperate battery...
