  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

mjx bugs 6
« on: October 06, 2018, 12:39:08 »
Any recomendations on where to buy mjx bugs 6 fpv from?
I dont have the time or funds to do a build just want something fun to fly outdoors and dabble in fpv.
Ebay sellers appear to have mixed reviews on delivery etc and never bought off websites like bangood or gear best.
Any suggestions would be good.

Banggood are OK but do take a couple of weeks to arrive and there is a slim possibility you could get stung for import tax! If you use PayPal you have a bit of protection or use a credit card on transactions over £75 and they are jointly liable so a bit of protection.

One issue with the quad you are intending to buy is spares. Believe me you will crash a lot at first and quite often break propellers at a minimum.

I assume you have read lots of reviews on the mjx bug?

Thanks ched999uk I would defo use paypal so thats a good call about having a bit of protection. Never used Banggood so its good to hear from others that have.
As you guessed Ive read endless reviews and watched lots of videos I think it will suit my needs.
Ive searched around for spares and spotted a couple of sites I could try. I currently have a Syma X5 style quad that I fly around our local dissused quarry which is an unforgiving environment when you get it wrong but have a couple of nice big fields nearby which I would be trying fpv flying to start with.

Any other quads in a similar price bracket that would give similar experience you guys would recommend?

It's good that you have some experience and are aware of spares.
To be honest generally people here will suggest building from scratch. The main reason is that you learn how to replace bits when you crash and break things  ::)
Plus most of 'toy' grade quads are not great, saying that it really does depend on what you want to do.
What you are looking at, for the money, as long as the reviews are reasonable should do you for getting a feel for fpv.

It's coming to winter and maybe an starter indoor fpv rig would keep you going over the colder wetter months.
Something like https://goo.gl/br8iLw for about £50 delivered. This gives you basic goggles, a brushed micro indoor quad with camera and a transmitter. OK so it's not very powerful but it will allow you to fly round the house no matter the weather outside.

Let us know what you decide and how you get on. If you fancy building from scratch let us know and we can help.
