so I took my buddy out today to let him experience what Fpv was about and boy.....my heart.....I think it stopped like 5 times. First I just had him fly in horizon mode LOS so he could get a feeling for the response and he flew it straight into a tree lol. I think he was trying to fly from the monitor I had setup. So second try it gets a little wild on him and he flies to far out and loses orientation so I snatch the tx and fly it back off the monitor right before it flys out of video range haha. So at this point I'm like ok just hover it right in front of us lol. So he starts to get a little use to it so I flip it in acro mode and straight to the ground it goes but I flip it in horizon just in time. But shortly after he dumps it again. So we didn't get to put the goggles on him today but I think with some sim time he will catch on to the controls and find that it's easier to fly in acro and Fpv. Anywho....hooked another one. Hopefully he gets something before spring time. Sometimes I forget how nervous it is to fly these for the first time. I imagine they are pretty intimidating to someone who has just flown chromas and dromidas. It was funny watching him punch the throttle the first time and before he even knew it it was out of sight. I can't blame him really not only was it his first time but that quad is set up on super high rates and is super touchy. Unfortunately I forgot my GoPro even though I had it all charged up cause I knew I was gonna get some great footage and really wanted to show it lol.
