Hi guys, has any one ever sorted out a decent FPV set up for the inspire1? No one seems to sell kits, is there a go pro option or something similar?
Have you actually tried Google?

There are a plethora of options and kits available from a multitude of retailers.

example:

or seeing as you are UK based:


There are also numerous threads already on the subject.

The guys at Drones Plus Dallas have a kit for that.

I've been using FatShark Dominator V3 goggles for years with great success. I love them and use them pretty much every time I fly my Inspire 1.

I'm far sighted so I have to use 1.50 cheaters to read. This slight vision impairment was a complete and utter deal-breaker for the poorly-engineered DJI OcuSuck™ goggles. The OcuSuck™ goggles were completely useless without cheaters. If you need cheaters to read, you have to wear cheaters to use the OcuSuck™ goggles. Ridiculous. Not so for the FatShark goggles, which utilize a completely different type of optic to bring the image to your eye. I can wear them all day without cheaters or readers.

Because the Inspire 1 controllers have an HDMI output, I can use the HDMI port on the FatShark goggles. This insures that I never have to worry about a third radio signal causing interference with the DJI radio signals or creating another point of failure. In a nutshell, it's a perfect set up. The FatShark goggles are well-engineered, durable, robust and worth every penny I paid for them.

As an added bonus, because the FatShark goggles also receive telemetry data, I don't need an iPad to fly. Should something go wrong with my iPad for any reason, I can still "get by" with my FatSharks.

PS: If anyone typos "googles" for "goggles," I will ignore your questions, comments and queries....<:^0

I got the DSLR Pros kit and ordered the Black Pearl RC 801 separately. Only used it once so far... found the range to be VERY short and lots of static... I may need to adjust some settings I suppose, but, for instance, when shooting from a position about 100 yards away from the Inspire, if we went behind a tree, I got 90% static.
I'm going to do some clear line of sight testing and will report back.
Also, battery life on the Black Pearl is pretty short. You'll need at least 1 extra battery if you're doing any sessions over an hour

5,8 frequency is wery suseptible for "behind something" situations. But for my from times with my Phantom2 which i own to this day and fly this is wery reliable solution.

First thing You must be absolutelly sure about frequency set on monitor and transmitter, i have a situation that i set frequency in house and see everything on monitor in close range but just putting a hand in line between two antennas produces static and on such close range this shouldnt happen.

Second thing antennas. Decent cloverleaf or pagoda makes al the difference and if You have some directional on second port of Black Pearl You can easili ged distance over 1 km with ease.

And third thing about the battery it really is small 3cell lipo inside Blackpearl but You have cables provided with monitor to charge or use external battery i use it all the time battery in my pocket connected to monitor.
