Default Interested in FPV

I am interested in trying out FPV on a 450 that I have sitting here. I was wondering if anyone can recommend just a basic setup to see if I like this part of the hobby. I was looking at the following and was wondering if was anygood to start with. I'm using a Spektrum 2.4ghz setup on the heli's.

This will only be good out to about 100 - 200 feet with the included RX and antena. So if you want to circle the field it should be ok but if you plan to go farther then that the Chinese TX\RX isn't going to work out.

Do not get anything with a tuning knob, and do not run 2.4 video with 2.4 control.

MInd the laws of the country you live in, at these powers, there are regulations, and licensing often required.

I bought my FPV gear from hobbywireless. Very fast shipping time to Norway, just took 5 days, and they can mark the item as GIFT, that allows us in norway to buy from them without paying the fcking 35% of the price. So if they didn't do it, I would have to pay 300 USD dollars to costoms.:O
