This guy has put an fpv setup on his h8 quadcopter. I don't know if any of you guys have tried these little $15 gems, but they are wonderful. They can also be reflashed to work in acro mode.
He also has a video on how to assemble the 5 GRAM!!!! fpv setup.

Here are all the links to the parts. Try it out, post results! I'm about to do the same. I'll also include in the parts list a link to the dongle for reflashing the flight controller and a video link on how to install and use acro mode. Please let me know if you guys see anything unsafe or electrically unsound with this setup.

Add a video receiver and you're set!

I'm terrible with fpv setups. I'm just starting to get into fpv. Could you suggest a good but cheap video receiver. That would be great. I'm glad you posted this, that id really cool.
