FPV Shakedown

I bought a little FPV copter a few months ago but only recently added video capability... using a gopro and tiny transmitter and also picked up a tablet like device that can monitor the video real time. The transmitter uses a usb type connector that connects to the gopro and using it for video transmission... the video quality is surprisingly good and in color as well... not nearly as good as the video that is recorded by the gopro but I was surprised at how good it was. I tried the FPV mode a little by viewing the tablet video... not easy to do... I'm not going to be happy until I get some of the FPV goggles... I think I'm going to ride down to Hobby Connection in Easley today and look at what they have... I'm afraid I want be able to see in them properly either with glasses or without... thats why I'm going to go have a look first hand.
