FPV Startup Information and Ideas
« on: November 21, 2016, 11:21:32 AM »
A couple of us have decided to give FPV a whirl. After extensive research (I can blame Roger if the results don't follow exactly!), we are trying the Headplay headset  from GETFPV and the Mobius adapter from Hobby King, since we both already have those cameras. Here are a few links which I have found interesting and useful:

I think this should be a separate category.
Also, rather than do all that research, why don't you give use a beginner's guide to the basic equipment needed.
Keep me on the list as "interested to learn", but "not necessarily committed."

  Gary, I know the weather hasn't cooperated with us lately but have you made any advances or whatever with the FPV system for yourself.??I see on RC Groups they're putting it in that new VTO type plane that LE should be getting in soon.
 I have my name on one.

I have both FATSHARK and EACHINE headsets.

I recommend the EACHINE.   Much bigger field of view, and no problem for folk who need glasses.

The FATSHARK have inserts if you wear glasses, but then you can't share them.

That being said, the FATSHARK have a neato video out port - you can watch the video on a TV as well as the actual goggles.

I'll bring them both to the next club meeting, so anyone who wants to can have a boo.
