on the slippery slope to damnation
« on: August 11, 2017, 21:24:47 »
About 10 months ago i bought a used 7" screen with RX, then forgot i had it........now i find i am building my first dedicated FPV quad, old school TBS reptile clone, now i find i am looking at FPV goggles and fpv video`s on youtube, will i be happy with a bit of a plodder like the 500 or will i end up whizzing about the sky with a 250 rocket

Go for a 250 size,,,, you can plod with it, but when you feel the need, the need for speed, you can whip its little ass like a good un  ::)

Best practice for fpv is a micro for round the house, gogs on, screen/dvr set up for recording and your away in your own fpv world, highly recommend it.
Such fun  :laugh:

I had a simple fpv screen with my 350qx was great for setting up the shots or footage you wanted  ~~ then I tried my mates fpv racer and I wanted a lot more speed haha  :laugh:
can always move some of the gear over to a smaller quad anyway matey trust me once you try fpv you will be hooked  :cool:
