Request for advice regarding fpv system with skyzone v2 goggles for beginner


I am considering buying a set of skyzone v2 goggles from hobbyking for my first venture into fpv flying with my rcx cf250 quad.

I understand they come with receiver built in (something called the diversity receiver).

I would need to buy a relevant camera, transmitter and any improve antennae from banggood.

Could someone recommend me the best option transmitter to go along with the goggles (with respect to best signal/connectivity, ease of setup, weight, and best range)?

Likewise, could you recommend which camera to go with (I would prefer to use one which is powered by its own lipo if possible, as the quad battery has it's balance cable already plugged into a voltage alarm and the main connector into the fcb and as I afraid to solder stuff myself)! Which is the best option in terms of best image, least latency, ease of setup and use, weight etc.?

I have seen the following cameras on BG but am confused with which to go:

Or is a Sony 1/3 600tvl CCD HAD II a better option?

Lastly, could someone tell me which and how many extra antennae I need to get: I.e. Cyclical , omnidirectional, r polarised or l polarised etc.?

If anyone can help, I would be grateful.
Thank you very much.

The diversity means that the goggles have 2 receivers which switch to the best signal automatically. You will need 2 circular polarized antennas for the goggles or preferably one circular polarized and a patch or helical, and the 1 for the transmitter. Boscam/Foxtech or immersion RC transmitters will work with the Skyzones but some have had problems using some Immersion RC VTX, I think the Boscam/Foxtech ones are more compatable.

Cameras are quite a big subject but a lot use the Sony 600 or 800 TVL , the CCD camera is good but uses more power.
