Help!
FPV System

Hi! I am looking for a 1.3GHz FPV System. I am going to need to get it by this weekend for my new job! I had already checked Ready Made RC but they were out of stock on everything. I was wondering of anyone knows any other sites that I can trust.

What I am looking for is something with a 1-2 mile range, it can transmit and receive a 720p video quality, and it wont break up too bad when I fly around trees.

I am getting the FatShark Attitude SD Video Goggles.

If anyone can help me with finding a website or even recommending a transmitter, receiver, and antenna that would be great!

Thanks in advance!

1. Have you ever flown fpv?
2. you will not get 720p video off the flight camera.
3. There is a lot to learn.

if you research, youll find out no matter how high your flight cam/gopro will go, the video feed will stop at a certain size, I want to see its 700lines or somewhere around that..

Even though your gopro outputs at 1080 you will not get hd video on the receiving side. One thing about FPV, Don't rush it or you will find yourself searching for your aircraft very far away.... Check out FPVLAB.com

Yes, lots to learn, it took me a couple of months to catch up on all the info. Everyone is correct, no HD video can be transmitted with the Gopro, but you can use it as your FPV camera and film with it at the same time, you will have HD video.

ok, i talked to readymade at toledo and they said that 1.3 has the strongest signal, so i thought that would be best for filming golf courses because there is a lot of trees
