    New to FPV: Micro setup

    For years I have mounted a small, wireless security camera to my planes to record video. Unfortunately, the range on the said device was only 300 feet - not near enough for me to actually fly fpv.

    The camera i have been using is nearly 7 years old and way outdated. I know next to nothing about the newer technology and fpv setup options.

    What I would like to know is how I could get into the fpv field with my current micro planes. I have a few of the Parkzone UMs, and one scratchbuilt electric. None of these can handle much weight, so the setup needs to be relatively light.

    I have seen several videos on youtube, so I know it is possible.

    1) What is a good, reliable company/brand/setup that offers a combo for micro planes. I do not need perfect video quality, just enough to see by.

    2) What kind of range can I expect? (I would love at least 1000m)

    3) How much is this going to set me back? My budget is not extremely large any more and I would love to keep it under $150.

    4) I can not use fpv goggles, but have multiple HD LCD screens lying around that I could wire into a reciever.

    I would appreciate any help you experienced geniuses and fellow noobs like me can offer.

    Thanks in advance,
    If God is your co-pilot, you are in the wrong seat.

    RE: New to FPV: Micro setup

    I have been using RangeVideo for all my FPV gear for several years with very good success.
    Good products, good service.
    I have just set up a micro system on a Blade MQX which is fun, as well as much larger systems.
    They have everything from complete packages to individual components.
    It\'\'s the quality of life that counts, not the quantity.
