My experience so far with 5.8ghz on my Quadrino quad has been very positive. I'm running the FoxTech 200mw system with CP antennas with Spektrum RC link. I fly near my home with little issues LOS out to 150M +. At a recent meet here in CO, I got out to about 1/3 mile with a nice clean link in open field. I use the FatShark base goggles with mine.
So you may want to look into CP antennas to replace the stock FS ones for longer distances. For a battery you can go separates or try powering the quad and video gear off a single lipo for simplicity. I use one 3S 3000/4000 pack to power everything with an in-line filter for the power leads on the Vtx. I really like to manage a single battery, quick and easy.
