I was flying mine on 4S. As strong as she is, I put way too much g load on her. That little plane can easily exceed 100mph.
Has Fish tried this yet ?
That should about cover it
I'm using my Spektrum Dx8 with it and an AR400 with the antenna embedded on the underside fuselage. I have had great range so far . . . knock on wood.
I launch with goggles up and then make sure it's flying before pulling them down.
Flitetest recommends these Kylin Vision Goggles for budget price $99 (comes with antenna and battery) http://store.flitetest.com/kylin-vision-5-fpv-goggles/
I also have the Headplays but rarely use them as they are bigger. Version 2 is out now and are much improved over my set. They are $209. http://store.flitetest.com/headplay-se-fpv-headset-v2/
If you purchase these they could use an antenna upgrade with this Vas Mushroom Omni Antenna $24.95 https://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=11_45_49_97 &products_id=1253
I use the Fatshark Dominator V2's most of the time.
I'm just running the stock linear antenna on the plane video transmitter (for less wind resistance) It works fine.
FPV planes let you relax quite a bit more than FPV Quads.
Fish has several Funfighter planes BUT hasn't set any up for fpv yet . . . he just goes for a ride using his goggles
I've taken this Rarebear out in 40+mph winds for some wild rides.
Here is a good video by flitetest comparing these goggles
