Hey Guys

After much debate I have decided to set up an FPV ground station, so that I can make flying easier for my fiance and me. I have looked into the SkyZone FPV Monitors, and have found they are a little expensive. I looked at the Hobbyking Monitors, and being Hobbyking I can't vouch for the quality. Now I am considering using my laptop and a Receiver, and I'm wondering if this is possible?

Any thoughts and opinions on any of these ideas, or any more you have, would be greatly appreciated!

I do like the idea of a Dedicated System, but I'm unsure of any alternatives to Skyzone i.e. why I was looking at Hobbyking. Any alternatives would also be appreciated.

Cheers

Depends on how large you want the screen to be, they can be found for very cheap on eBay.

Yeah but with googles, for those of us with glasses, they can't see! Does anyone know what screen you can use to connect to the fat shark googles?

Hey Fishie, do you have fatshark goggles?

I still only have a pair of Quanum V2's, as when I started getting into F.P.V. I didn't want to spend big $'s and not like it. I find the V2's fine for the amount I fly.

I can't tell you which screens allow connection, but I reckon as long as it had an A.V. in or Out, you should be good.

I just have a small screen just to make it easier to see the data from my hex, rather than relying on the bright L.E.D.

Cheers Dave.

I wear +3.5 glasses for reading and use goggles just fine, some are better than others though, favorites are my Dominator HD2's, brilliant.

I does both AV in and out.  You select each using the little slider switch.  Refer to your manual or google it.
Lots of Blade Heli's, TT X50E, Ion-x, HC/BD3sx on most
Lots of E-Planks, multi's, now into FPV, MAAA Gold Wings, Heli's and Planes
