Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

They are just reselling kit from

http://www.foxtechfpv.com/fpv-equipments-58g-fpv-video-equipment-c-70_76.html

at a bit of a markup. You could buy this;

http://www.foxtechfpv.com/58g-400mw-vtxrx-p-550.html

for about £70 delivered - it';s got twice the power on the transmitter.

If you want to get FPVing as soon as possible the ebay kit will work fine. It';s pretty much exactly what i use at the moment on my mini FPV hexacopter;

you can see the kinds of ranges i get in the video.

The aerials look fine - cross polarised is what you want. I haven';t used those particular ones myself though - i bought some hand made ones from Gav - a forum member. He uses electrical test equipment to check the frequencies are exactly right and i find they work a bit better than the hobbyking cross polarised aerials i was using before;

A bit cheaper as well at £30.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.

Tell Gav what FPV equipment you are using them with and he will either supply the adapters or else make sure they don';t need any.

I use male to female adapters on mine - works no problem.

If you are not in a hurry I';d buy the rest of the stuff direct from foxtech (or possibly hobbyking international) - but i think delivery is likely to be ';about'; 2 weeks (standard from the far east). That';s why they sell on ebay UK for so much more.
