    Ghost

    Last week, I got a solid flight in. This took place in a school parking lot that has an area off to the side with stands of trees and even a sort of enclosed area that is not used by anyone.

I was following instructions written the year before, which in any other hobby would have been fine. Not FPV. NOTE my build choices are down below, feel free to skip my rambling and scroll down… Finally, in the early summer 2017 I managed to…

    Top 10 FPV Videos of All Time

    FPV drone pilots are inspired by a culture largely driven through YouTube videos. Most of us have our own YouTube channels and love to share our content with the FPV community. Many videos shape our culture and influence what we do in real life. Here are my picks for the top FPV videos of all time. Some of these videos look dated by our standards today but are so influential that they have shared our experience and deserve a place here. Take a look and let me know what you think. Did I get it right? If not too bad, hash it out in the comments and then go fly!…
