How did you get into FPV: As a young child, I was always into RC from cars to drones. However, In Mid 2017 Drone Racing was trending on YouTube. Both myself and a mate of mine saw these Drone Racing videos on YouTube and we were captivated by the idea of flying high-speed racing drones. After a month of researching what equipment to buy, we both decided to purchase a racing drone and get into the hobby together, the rest is history.

How long have you been flying FPV drones for: Since September 2017 Tips for those getting into FPV: Purchase a good radio which can be connected to a simulator such as Velocidrone. Spend a couple of months learning how to fly on the simulator before purchasing a drone and goggles. This will help save a lot of money and will help develop your skills quicker. Once you are confident flying on the simulator that is when you should purchase a drone and goggles.
