a little more than a year ago I moved from Manhattan - where I'd spent my entire life - to upstate NY. In the city I worked mostly as a photographer... made extra cash building custom gaming PCs. Upstate I found nothing worth photographing and no interest in computers. I impulse bought a crappy toy drone on amazon one night (have a little impulsivity issue) and somehow... dunno, overnight I was hooked. I had to teach myself everything, not knowing anyone else with similar interests. I am not a natural; I sucked then and now - almost a year later - I still suck. I'm a slow learner and a bad teacher. The combo is not conducive to a speedy acquisition of drone skills (or anything else). A couple of weeks ago I finally met some guys through the drone meet up group i started that gave me a proper intro to the world of FPV racing (I'd been treading water in the aerial photo tadpole tank).
Anyhow. I spend hours every day building, flying, researching, thinking and bashing my head against the wall of drone incompetence. I'm trying, but slow progress.
