The FPV starter kit

FPV drones seem to move and fly in very different ways than DJI drones, making them different tools for drone applications. The FPV starter kit is a guide to help you get started with FPV drones before investing hundreds or thousands of dollars in them.

I realized I wanted to learn how to fly FPV drones after about three years of flying DJI. For some reason, I really thought FPV was silly and if anything, quite easy compared to how I was flying to achieve the photo/video I was creating. However, that wasn’t the case at all. My first flight was nothing but a crash into the ground on a 5″ quad because I thought I knew how to fly (based on my DJI expertise). Turns out an FPV drone requires quite a bit of skill and knowledge, especially if you want to make it fun.

So my journey began… Two years later I feel like I have figured out one of the simplest ways to learn about FPV drones. Even with three years of DJI flight under my belt, I still found it challenging to understand the flips, rolls, and extra bit of agility, let alone all the “building” that comes along with FPV. I wasn’t willing to spend a bunch of money to buy the best drone and fly it if I was probably going to crash and break it. On top of that, I’d have to learn how to fix it which would require knowledge of parts and electronics. I just didn’t feel ready to fully commit.
