Do you need to buy a separate separate separate for the camera.

On a Quad, to power the VTX would be better to use a separated battery or just connect to the main battery ? If using a separated battery would the 2S Rhino 610mah be enough ? thanks

You could use the 'balance connector' from the main pack ,just tap the first two cells to get your 7.4v and it keeps the weight gain down so it's then possible to go up a size in your main flight pack eg 2600mah to 3000mah or 2200 to 2650 etc. Fly Safe Fly Hard Fly Heaps jcinauz

How does the quality compare? Also does this have an sd card slot like the teleporter v3?
 Platon 2 points
The quality is ok. On a scale 1-5 its a 3 while the dominator v2's is a 5. It does not have an sd card like the teleporters, but you can use a DVR to record your video downlink on the ground. You can use this DVR: www.link

can i add head tracking to this?
 Richtofen 1078 points
Look for prod HKX-1000: you can attach it to your headband like you attach the battery. I haven't tried ut myself, but have been considering it.

Got this predator system and it works really fine but the camera isnt the best. Sometimes it really hard to see anything at all when you fly from lighter places into darker. Can i use another better camera? Any suggestions? I want it simple as possible, almost plug and play if it can be done.

Try the Fatshark 430L CCD for direct plug-in. Some will say it is not the best either, but it is better than the stock camera (at least better than the one I got when I bought it) and it plugs directly - no audio though.

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 youtu.be/G57V074xvYQ

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.
