Dominator receiver modules are compatible with both the Dominator and the DominatorHD. The modules allow the headset functions to be tailored to specific FPV requirements or allow upgrading as needs are indentified.
5G8 NexwaveRF receiver module with sensitivity to <-90dBm (approximately 40% range improvement over previous generation).
Head trackers connect to the trainer system so the user can control pan, tilt, and roll movements of a camera with your head movements. The Spektrum DX6 (2014 edition), DX9, DX10t, DX18t and DX18 are compatible with head trackers.
The Academy of Model Aeronautics has important guidelines for FPV pilots. Look at the AMA Documents, including #704 when you visit www.ModelAircraft.org/documents.aspx to see how AMA benefits work for you.
The transmissions of longer range, higher quality video FPV systems often require users to obtain a HAM Technical-class license to be legal. It involves a 35 multiple choice question test and a nominal fee; the license is active for 10 years. Amateur radio clubs in your area are usually glad to help your customers “legal up�?. Find out more by visiting the Amateur Radio Relay Network at www.ARRL.org. The bundles offered at Horizon Hobby through FatShark do not require licenses out of the box as they maintain the legal limit required. Converting to a higher power (as the modular Dominator bundle will allow) adds the license requirement.
When flying FPV, one of the most intriguing aspects of flight is doing low "map of the earth" flying. While this is entirely practical for short ranges, it's important to understand the range of the system will be much shorter close to the ground than a few hundred feet up. Pilots should always be aware of line-of-sight restrictions which could interrupt your signals such as trees, bushes, snow banks, etc. They should always fly with an observer close by who has sight of the model at all times and can talk them back if orientation becomes confusing.
Always maintain maximum separation between control receiver antennas and video transmitter antennas. Try to place the video transmitter in an area free and clear of wires, metal or carbon fiber on your model. Minimizing vibration will also have a benefit of improving video performance. Balance propellers, check for bent shafts, and ensure motors or engines are securely mounted.

Interpupillary Distance (IPD)is the distance between the center of the pupils of the two eyes. IPD is critical for the design of binocular viewing systems, where both eye pupils need to be positioned within the exit pupils of the viewing system
