FLuX_Fpv (Grant Mayo)
How I got into fpv.
I was always heavy into dirtbikes and cars, anything fast that would get the guts goin. Had a mate show me an fpv drift chase vid by steele on YouTube. I couldn't believe a drone could do such a thing and from that one fpv video I was hooked. I'd seen other standard drones before but nothing like the things these 5inch minikwads could do. Pretty cool concept doing a hundred a fifty k's while sitting inside a set of goggles.. that's what had me..

Tips for someone getting into the hobby;
Buy quality gear from a REPUTABLE supplier, you'll be heaps more comfortable behind the goggles when you know you can count on the components you have in your build, you can't put a price on reliability.
Practice and practice till it all feels natural on the sticks..and remember the more you push yourself out of that comfort zone the more your flying will improve
