Looks good to me. Throw in some 9" props and you're good to go.

If I were to suggest anything, and this is not critical in the least, is to mention securitycam2000 has a similar but slightly better FPV cam over that bundled sony cam in that kit. Here's a guy comparing the HK one to the securitycam2000 one. BUT, as I said, it's close to the entire HK FPV kit, so it's merely a suggestion. Maybe something to look at if you break the HK cam.

Oh. I should've mentioned, I'm not just suggesting this from a review. I bought one a couple weeks ago and got it quick about 5 days ago and have been messing with it. If you follow this forum, you may have seen I lost a quad in the massive woody area behind my house, which had my Foxtech V3 on it.

This Sony CCD is much better FPV-wise than that cam. Albeit the V3 had 1080P record capability. But the Sony CCD HAD is MILES better in low light than the Foxtech V3. So much so, I believe I'll be able to do some night flying with it.
