first FPV kit advice?

#1
I have 1.5m turbo timber
1.2m Clipped wing cub
UMX Ultrix
i’m more interested in starter FPV package for the turbo timber

i’m a bit confused about Cam, video Tx+Antenna, and for now a display w/ integrated Rx (or cheaper goggles that have the monitor insert.

prefer to use 1S for as a separate battery for on-board Tx

can anyone recommend affordable items I can order to complete?

p.s. I think i want a 150 FOV if possible. high res quality not too important...

The integrated all in one (AOI) cameras are fine, just get one with 200mw power output available. They work fine off a spare 5v and ground or wire a cheap BEC direct to the main power or balance lead. They don’t take much power, 5v constant off the main pack is better than a separate 1s battery IMO. Safer too.
Box goggles are fine, I ran Eachine EV800’s for ages, they are reliable and the 800x400 resolution is really good and clear. Plus you can turn them into a monitor to show people the view or to record it with a camcorder, the basic ones don’t have DVR
