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!

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
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
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?
It may not be the head tracker, but the servo. Try looking the movement in the 'display' tab of the transmitter. If it is normal, the problem is with the servo. If it is also slow, then the problem may be with the headtrack.
That's right - servo reaches it's final angle, it just needs longer time to get there- from point to point (max left to max right, or up down) it needs around 3-4 sec. I have TGY 9X with er9x and I can see on Tx-es display that the movement is slow.
Hi, I have the same problem.
~Mine also feel very slow, and I've watched on osciloscope, and the PWM sinal is very slow as I move my had/goggles.
the problem comes form gogles.
I have a attitude SD that bought this year.
Found the problem!! Fatshark helped.
I'm using a cable (gogles to radio) with a 3.5mmjack that has pwm in and out on same pin.
If I connect power on goggles prior to connect cable to the radio, it works fine. No more delay on movement. Problem solved!
I don't think so. I have that antenna (262000001) the connector says 'SMA/FME', it is SMA MALE.
I think these googles have RP-SMA Female (like on WiFi router), this suits an antenna with RP-SMA Male connector (...Wifi antenna).
That said, find a to on ebay/etc, try item#330478952087, for a good pic!
I had the head tracking working once then never again. I've tried to reset it by holding down the HK button while powering up and letting go immediately afterwards but it always just beeps 4 times then once then twice. Any advice? How do I reset the module?
Fatshark predator., immersion 5.8ghz, 600mw. Hd wing camera, Cloverleaf..
When I connect this the video is vague /blurry. I see only shapes in blue and white colored.
I tried different types of channels. On both antenne it stays the same.
What is wrong? The camera is okay and recording well. Please help!
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

1 thumbs up!
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!!!!!!!!
