After being badly messed around by HK after they lost my $600+ order I am looking for another supplier. At the moment I am looking mainly for FPV gear, Fatshark base goggles, boscam 600mw 5.8 rx/tx etc or similar.
I can do searches myself but I want a supplier who will make out the order is of less value for customs. Like HK does.

I can't believe the prices some well known shops are charging in Europe and UK. An example if the goggles are $260 from China, they are 260 pounds ( $420 ) from a Uk shop. It's like they don't bother doing a conversion! I'd rather take a chance with customs and order from China than be ripped off.

+1 for readymaderc. I get all my FPV gear from them and their support is excellent...

Just Say No to hobby king. True, it's super cheap, but then again whatever it is's chances of actually flying through the air is correspondingly much lower...

I'm not into FPV nor have I ever ordered from ReadyMadeRC, but I chatted with them at length regarding FPV and their product offerings at Toledo this year. It was a pleasure talking with them and I wouldn't hesitate to order from them.

That's practically what I have for the ground station I'm working on. I'm still using my attitudes for the time being, I've just been to lazy to put the UNO up onto its tripod lol.

If that transmitter is the immersionRC one, it's a good unit, I have two of them, one on the Whiplash and the other on my f550.

They're out of stock on the NTSC version right now, but I _highly_ recommend spending a bit extra and getting the 700PRO cam to go along with. It's low light performance is really spectacular so you can still do a couple flights after sunset and still see very well...

I got a reply from them already and they said no problem doing the discount so happy days.
I have to wait first and see if my order actually arrives ( yea right ) or get my money soon from the paypal dispute which I hope to have in a week.
That TX is the ImmersionRC one.
I have a tripod and a monopod ( on order ) which I plan to use as an aerial. The monopod screws onto the tripod camera mount and I should get about 11 feet height with the aerial as well as looking good.

Here is the monopod

The tripod. Cheap and flimzy china stuff but its not for camera use!
