Known as the JJRC H8D, the quadcopter drone comes with true FPV with a 5.8GHz downlink as opposed to 2.4GHz on some cheaper ones. Of course, this comes at a price — the JJRC H8D is about twice the cost of an H8C!
FPV on the JJRC H8D is made possible by the 2 mega-pixel camera it houses on board. The drone also has headless mode, which means there’s no need for you to keep in mind the orientation of the quadcopter while flying outdoors. A 3.7V 730mAh battery powers the JJRC H8D, which according to Banggood’s listing should last around 8 minutes of flight.
To complete the RTF FPV kit, the controller comes with an on-board field monitor. Speaking of the controller, it can also switch between mode 1 and mode 2.
The quadcopter drone can be had in Red and Orange via Banggood for $120 shipped. It has a Cheerson CX-20 sort of a look to it, I must admit.

More and more 5.8GHz FPV drones are expected to hit the market later this year, and hopefully the prices will soon settle around the $75 mark if my prediction is right!
