If you currently don’t have any FPV related products, you would need the following items.
- Radio Receiver
- FPV Goggles
- Video receiver (only for Fat Shark Goggles)
- LiPo Bag
If you already have a few of the listed items, select the “None” option to skip it.
You need a radio to be able to fly your quad. The Quadcopter does not include a Radio Receiver, so you would need to add a Radio Receiver that is compatible with your Radio to be able to fly the quad.
All the listed goggles are great for flying FPV! Select the goggle that suits your budget. If you do decide to purchase the premium, Fat Shark goggles; you would have to add a Video Receiver to your order as it does not come built-in with one. The other goggles already have a video receiver included, so no need to add one to your order if you select a different option than the Fat Shark Goggles.
The Fat Shark Goggles DO NOT include a built-in receiver so you would have to include one as an addon if you select the Fat Shark Goggles. Both receivers are great but we would recommend the Diversity Receiver if your budget allows for it. The Diversity Receiver allows you to attach 2 antennas to your goggles, giving you a clearer picture in certain conditions. If you do select the Diversity Video Receiver, then you would need to purchase the extra “Patch” Antenna which allows for the performance gain.
Any charger would be able to charge your batteries. The only difference would be the amount of input ports available, the Wattage that the charger is capable of and a few other bells and whistles such as touch screens and additional features (which aren’t always necessary unless you are interested in knowing a lot of additional information about your batteries such as Internal Resistance etc.) If you are going to be serious about flying, we would recommend the 4-input charger so that you can charge multiple batteries at a time.
The batteries included in this kit is some of the highest performing batteries on the market. Usually, depending on how you fly, a 1300mah 4S battery would last you anywhere between 90 seconds to 6 minutes. That’s usually not a lot of time. We would recommend that you have a minimum of 4 batteries to fly as it would allow you to fly more and have an extended “FPV grin” on your face! You can never have too many batteries.
LiPo Bag... We’ll say it again... LiPo Bag… This is one of the most important components in your FPV setup. LiPo fires are a real danger. Whilst they don’t happen often, you always want to be safe! We recommend that you store no more than 4 batteries per LiPo bag. ALWAYS charge and store your LiPo batteries inside a LiPo Bag. We’d also recommend adding a LiPo Tester to your cart; it allows you to check the Voltage Levels of your battery so that if you’re unsure whether it’s charged or not, you can plug it in and get an answer.
Now that you have all this gear, how will you be transporting it to the field and back? Any normal backpack will suffice, however, there are bags specifically made for FPV Gear. A dedicated FPV Gear bag will also protect all of your gear during transport.
Once you’re up and flying, you’ll want to share your FPV flights with family, friends and the FPV Community. The best way to do this is with an Action Camera. We would recommend the GoPro Hero 5 Session. Remember to include a Memory Card if you don’t have one lying around. We’d also recommend the 3D Printed GoPro Hero 5 Session mount made specifically for this quadcopter.
