Fat Shark Predator RTF FPV Headset System w/Camera and 5.8G TX
The easiest way to get started with FPV!
HobbyKing and Fat Shark have worked together to bring you a Ready to Fly package that eliminates the guess work typicaly associated with FPV setups. This easy to use all-in-one solution provides a scalable platform that is simple to put together yet allows for upgrades to your setup as you progress.
By incorporating brand new LCD technology into a completely redesigned headset and bundling this with a camera & 5.8G TX, Fat Shark has lowered the entry price point for aspiring new FPV pilots.
The Predator’s 25-degree FOV VGA display has the same resolution offered by higher end VGA headsets and will show the same camera and OSD detail. The Predator is equipped with the M.I.G (magnetic, inertial, gyro) head tracker and when combined with a pan/tilt camera, delivers a truly immersive FPV experience.
The integrated 5.8Ghz receiver allows new pilots to quickly experience video piloting without the hassles and expense of external receivers.
This is the full system combo that gives you everything you need to start FPV flying with your model!

It will work on any r/c as long as you have it hooked up with power correctly. The camera is pretty small so you shouldn't have any problems fitting it to a RC Drift. As far as using it for racing, probably not legal to race with but you will need to ask the officials in person at the race or races your going to attend.
I need help with FPV system for rc car Traxxas Summit and i want long rang for my rc car. Which one do i need to buy for my rc car? I want to drive behind trees,buildings,wall and long distance plss help me, what do l need to buy
5.8ghz systems work great but the signals don't pentatrate through walls and trees very well. I would recommend using a UHF system if going behind buildings and going really long distances but unless you uprade your rc radio your limited on how far your Summit can go anyways. A 5.8ghz system with upgraded antennas might work good enough for your needs. I've seen videos of guys flying their quads through trees and going long distances with 5.8ghz systems.
Hi, I'm looking for a complete combo of fpv headset rtf with head tracker, camera,rx, etc, for my dji phantom. The complete system I see in hobbyking page does not have head tracker. I would like to get a complete system rtf, instead of buying separate items. I hear recommendations. Thanks
Hi moises i don't think HK sells a complete set up any more as you can see this one has been replaced with the FS Predator V2 (PRODUCT ID: 253000014)which don't have head tracking,but you can always add a pan and tilt device and use the controls on your radio to get the movement you might be looking for,or o for the FS AttitudeSD (PRODUCT ID: 253000015) which does have head tracking but you will have to buy your own camera which HK have,they list it in the Acc box just under the price tab and is quite easy to install,thats about your best options that i can think of.
I am beginning in FPV... I would like to ask if you had all the money in the world and you had to set up your first FPV system but it had to be as simple as possible to construct and operate what system would you get ??
hola! Te recomendaria que comiences con un sistema economico 2.4 ghz, y te acostumbres de a poco comienza si gente alrededor porque es peligroso, siempre la gente detras tuyo, con vuelos bajos y ten en vista practicar con un arbol y trata de mirarlo todo alrededor , practica mantener la altura, usa un monitor economico tipo de 7 pulgadas y trata de no mirar tu quadcopter o avion, usa un tripode para el receptor , te dejo el link de HK, Suerte www.link
hello! I would recommend that you start with an economic system 2.4 ghz, and slowly get used to if anyone starts because it is dangerous, always people behind you, flying low and keep in practice with a tree view and tries to look all around, practice keep the height, use a type of economic monitor 7 inches and try not to look at your quadcopter or plane, use a tripod to the receiver, I'll leave the link HK, Luck www.link
Wesley, I would honestly get this. I started with a fancy 900mhz system without goggles, spent countless hours wiring it up and getting everything dialed in on my bixler. I bought this and after an hour I was in the air flying FPV. Granted my 900mhz system gets much more range but this system seems to fit my needs (plus you just need your goggles instead of a fancy ground station). Get this, put the video tx as far away from your rx as possible and have fun with FPV. Theres nothing quite like it
hey, recently i got the x900 tri and im keen to get into fpv flying using it. I got no idea whats needed to get started with FPV flying tho, does this Fat Shark setup come with everything thats needed to get flying? also i want to use a GoPro camera so i can record aswell, does anyone know which plugs or electronics are needed to set a Gopro up with the fatshark goggles,or to get it working with a gopro anyway, cheers
This is a general question* How doe the useable range of this system compare with the Spektrum TM1000 Telemetry transmitter?
I am building a heavy lift hexa F800 using the Spektrum system and really don't need a FPV system with more range.*
The Circular Polarized antenna should offer more range because of their gain over the standard "rubber ducky" antennas, is there anyone with real world numbers comparing the two antennas?
I mounted mine with double sided foam sticky tape onto a Guai 330x Quadcopter, its easy to fly with the Fatshark goggles but you can get lost easy so now plug a 7" monitor into the goggles so I can watch the model and screen at the same time . Heaps of fun and no crashes since while learning
It will depend on what type of model you intend to mount it to..? Plane? Multirotor? Heli? Boat?
Do you want Pan & Tilt or fixed view? Pretty much impossible to answer without more info... All sorts of methods have been used, double sided tape, velcro, Pan & Tilt mounts like PRODUCT ID: Q005 can be used to mount the camera... Hope that helps a bit..?!?!?
I've experienced this kind of wobbly distorsion of the image. 2 things does that. First it is the Propeller in front of the cam. The second thing is the vibration... still coming from the propeller. When I changed to a wood propeller. The blur effect reduced a lot. The sound too was affected. Hope it helps
Its not the magnetic fields either, its called 'rolling shutter' and its because of the type of camera used (CMOS) and the speed of the motor rotation 'resonating' with each other.
Most folks flying FPV use a CCD type camera as they dont experience rolling shutter.
I just now have started to use my FPV gear and I am noticing a video flicker at the top of the screen. Check out the video attached to see this and it happens when on the ground wherever I am not just when flying. Ideas?
How do I enable head tracking? I would like to use it w/ my RC car and head traking would make a better experience.

Mounted mine on a GWS slow stick with a tiny GWS gyro on the Aileron channel its rock steady and ideal for learning FPV , the goggles are like looking at a distant screen so I take off without them and then slip them on while flying over head , I range checked the the camera to 650 metres but dont fly to far away , Good value for a birds eye view

Excellent FPV system for Novice or Expert users, head tracker works excellent with the Turnigy 9x radio with almost no drift compared to other head trackers, goggle fits very comfortable and are easy to see. The 100mw with a Cloverleaf antenna will give excellent range, or you can always upgrade to a 600mw VTX and get even better range. Very happy with this system.

I received mine today and everthing worked well. I got a clear signal from the camera and a clear picture, also tested to link the goggles with my Tv with the supported av cable and it worked well.
What I need to is how to conect the Hobbyking G-OSD II Mini OSD System to the standard Video Tx??? Any ideas? need help?

Just receive my order few days ago, about 5 working days from HK to Malaysia including processing, I think is reasonable. Kit says 'RTR' and yes, I power up the fpv transmitter with the lipo balance plug & turn on the video gogle, i see sharp image. However 4 star because I can't charge the supplied battery due to this 'Adapter plug for headset battery connector to XT60 ' faulty, i've to salvage a charge plug from an old transmitter to make a new adapter.
Overall, it's a good buy.

You need to make a link from the middle solder to the minus pole. Don't make the same time consuming mistake to solder from the side -because it will only give contact to (-) while there is no plug plugged in! Once the Plug is inserted and presse!!!!!!!!
