As a result of our diligent testing and years of continuous product improvement, the Predator V2 has incorporated Fat Sharks latest technology giving you the security of a solid video link and an amazing 1+ kilometer range right out of the box!

I tested this on a Blade 300x, 450x, but ended up leaving it permanently installed on a ground
Traxxas buggy. Too much static after you break 20 meters line of sight* I would not trust this on an aircraft. It's a neat kit if you plan on using indoors or in your backyard with your buggy.
What transmitter are you using? The chances are that your transmitter is positioned too close to your Flight receiver or the aerial of your transmitter is positioned so that the week area is closest to your Video receiver. Imagine a doughnut placed over the aerial, where there would be doughnut the signal is strongest. You will probably have to have a play around with transmitter position. If that doesn't work buy the Fatshark 600mW transmitter
The video resolution in the goggles. These goggles have a resolution of 640x480, the Teleporter V3 goggles have a resolution of 320x240. This package also comes with a different camera. After seeing reviews on youtube this camera seems to handle light changes better, however the camera included in this package does not record. I don't own a set myself as I am tossing up between the Teleporter V3 and these. At the moment I am leaning towards these. $80 more for goggles with double the resolution and what seems to be a better camera.
I ordered this almost 2 months ago international but I still haven't received it yet. I am really getting worried it is lost in shipping to the USA. Anybody else have this type of problem in shipping too?
i have filed a complaint to hobby king and there checking into it and a today i have received an email saying its going to take 2 months to look intoits bs in my opinion always go with swiss air if your ordering from the international warehouse i have never waited more then 2 weeks from them
Eric, same thing here. I wish I never picked the method I did. I think Im going to dispute it with my bank and buy it somewhere else. When you check the tracking link, it says my shipment was sent to New Jersey about 3 weeks ago, and nothing has happened after that.
There are some time guidelines that the bank has, but you would basically call the bank and say you never received your shipment, and that's its been more than enough time to have received it. I would also let them know what HK told you about waiting 2 months to investigate it. I think that the bank will consider that too long and unsatisfactory, and they might give you your money back quicker if they favor your case. If you used a PayPal card, you would call them, and if it was through another card like an ATM or CC from another bank, you call them. What sucks for me, is that this was my largest purchase from HK out of many, and THIS is the one that gets lost, bad luck for me I guess.
ok im going to wait another week and if nothing changes i am going to do that hope ya get yours soon
I just recieved this,everything was in perfect working order,it works great!,I have'nt fully tested the range,but the video quality is good.This unit does not have the head tracking feature,I fly spektrum and it was to my understanding that it will only work with the turnigy or futaba systems,I'm not going to buy another radio to use this feature,my custom built FPV airplane is going to be simple 3 channel operation,and I plan on using the left stick for panning the camera and the gear swith to tilt the camera. If you can live with out the head tracking,or don't want to buy another radio like me,this is the system to get.

Just got these and got to compare them with my Predator V1 back to back. To cut a long story short, These Predators have Better Optics, Better Camera, Wider Angle lens on Camera, Higher powered Video TX 250mw. If head tracking isn't a big deal, these are GREAT Value and Quality!! Highly recommend these. I'm uploading a back to back comparison with the predator v1 on my youtube channel bmsweb

Cracking bit of kit, goggles feel just as good but lighter than V1.
No issues with it at all in terms of functionality. however this camera is worse than the V1. for me it had real trouble keeping colour and kept going black and white. If you get this get another cam =].
With SpiroNets I got 300m high and 500m out with no problems.

If recently received this great set.
Well, at least, I thought it would be a great set.
I've connected it once at home testing is. It started out great. However, I've tried it the other day, and all I get is static. I've tried every button, I've tried charging the LIPO/changing the LIPO, nothing. I seems 'dead'.
Suggestions? It warranty available through HK or Fat Shark?
Now I have nothing without even mounting it to my quad.....
Great value for what you get but the viewing angle is a little narrow and camera is not of the best quality picture (Get GoPro if you want the best possible and have money to spend) so I give it 4 stars.
