FPV
|

Today I decided to try doing some fpv with my QAV500 for the first time.

I’ve done fpv on 2 other frames and I hated it, It just felt uncontrollable and really scary. So today I got brave and did a check on every part of my quad, radio, video Tx and Rx, go pro and my flight controller. After all systems were go I took off like normal for about 30 seconds to make sure everything was working, then I switched over to my monitor and started hovering. At first I was scared out of my mind, it’s not fun flying a $900 investment for the first time only being able to look at a little screen, but after about 7 minutes of hovering around my battery was dying. So I landed, changed the battery and after flying another 5 minutes I started getting more comfortable. Towards the end of the flight I was having a lot of fun. I started flying in a fast figure eight around the yard. So I can definitely say that I’ve never had such a good fpv experience before.
