    Does anyone know if it possible to usr the Q500+, with FatShark Attitude V2 glasses?

    Fatshark products won't work with the CGO cameras.
    CGO cameras use digital transmission over WiFi to transmit the video.
    Fatshark uses analog video transmission. (selectable for NTSC or PAL, depending on your region)
    The kit I just looked at comes with a camera that would work but you would have to
    mount it on the quad and provide a power source for it. The power source would
    be the easy part. You could just drill a hole in the body and tap into the
    Q500's battery terminals. If you're handy, making a mount wouldn't be a
    lot of trouble. Yuneec sells the gimbal base that slides onto the Q500 and you
    can just build off of that.

    Even if they could work with the CGO, the digital latency would be too much to be useful.
    This is why all the racing FPV setups use analog transmission.
    I've done some testing and found the CGO-3's latency to be about 282 milliseconds.
    That doesn't sound like a lot, but when you do the calculations, you realize
    how far you will be from where you think you are. Here are the numbers:

    1 ________.41' (.125m)
    5________2.07' (.63m)
    10_______4.15' (1.27m)
    15_______6.17' (1.88m)
    20_______8.24' (2.51m)

    A better option might be the Fatshark FPV kit that Carolina Dronz carries for the Q500.
    It's plug-and-play, meaning that you don't need to worry about wiring and building
    a mount for it. It uses analog transmission for near-zero latency. (Really, virtually none, but because
    everything has some type of latency, they technically have to call it "near-zero".)
