Getting into FPV


Active member
So I am not new to RC but want to take a stab at FPV flying. I've strapped gopro's and runcams on many planes but want a more immersive experience. I'm not sure what parts I need for FPV. I've got a couple of wings that would be perfect for FPV. I found this on banggood: FPV Cam
I'm guessing I would just need a battery to power it and goggles to view right?

Don’t go the DJI O3 Air Unit road… because once you do, it will be only that or give up FPV for good. It IS SOOO GOOD!

Ok. What else will I need? Battery and goggles?
Yes, goggles, a battery for the camera/transmitter, some kind of mount for the camera. The camera I linked is small enough to just use a drop of hot glue to secure it, but an adjustable mount would be nice.

The FT store has a couple affordable goggle sets.§ion=product
The $55.00 set does not, to best of my knowledge have DVR capability. The $75 set does. I have that set and they seem to work well enough at the price point. I had to make my own face gasket to allow me to wear reading glasses with them.
