Yep just got the FPV working last night. I think I need to add an LC filter for the camera then it should be good to go! It's not the fastest thing out there but it's a great starter quad.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
