Do you want to know what it feels like to fly? How about soaring though a forest on a speeder bike from the Star Wars movies?
Today, with FPV (First Person View) technology you can literally set up a remote controlled drone with a camera and slap on a set of Virtual Reality goggles to get the experience of flight firsthand!
I've been flying FPV drones for about a year and I can tell you that it is very bit exhilerating as you are imagining.
But, since you landed on my site you probably know all this already. If you are like most people, you probably have no idea where to start when it comes to FPV. This hobby is on the cutting edge, the technology is changing every week and there is a ridiculus amount of ways to get started. It's easy to go down the wrong path and throw all your time and money at something that doesn't quite work.
Why would I say that? How do I know?
When I started, I did all the wrong things and spend a few thousand dollars more than I needed to. I had to go it alone since no one I ever met knew FPV. Since then I've finally found out the right formula for me and I've learned a lot of things about FPV.
Now I want to shared what I learned with you. What gear to buy, how to start flying and where to find people to fly with. But, first we need to get you in the air…
Here Is How I Can Help You Get Started…
First things first… For some people, this hobby can a fun sort of one-off experience. Many people are happy just playing with a nice toy drone in their living room. Other people dive right into the pro drone world. They go in deep and this hobby becomes a massive part of their life. So, there are two paths in this hobby. One is cheaper than the other but both can be crazy addictive (in a good way). Before I can help, you have to decide which person you are.
Do you just want to try out FPV and not spend too much money?
Do you want to go all-on on this hobby do the full racing and freestyle drone lifestyle experience?
If you want to really get into this hobby, it makes sense to spend a little bit more on equipment that will last for a long time. Things like the VR goggles and radio transmitter can be used for a long time and with lots of drones. The drones themselves don't always last - they crash, get lost and sometimes you want different drones for different activities. But, for those that are going all-in in FPV drones then spending more money on the hobby grade products that last a long time is a great value strategy.
For the rest of us who just want to play around a little bit and are not really sure if FPV then cheaper toy grade products are the best bet. There are options for buying toy grade FPV products that are relatively cheap and will still give you an amazing FPV experience.
