Getting started with FPV

So, you have made up your mind and want to try FPV? Like many things in life your FPV journey is exactly that - YOUR JOURNEY.

So how you do things is entirely up to you and there surely is more than one way to accomplish certain milestones on your way to becoming a decent FPV drone pilot.

FPVtips's goal is to share those different paths. For instance, some people prefer to spend more hours on a simulator before they try the real thing. Others find the simulator boring. You do you!

Here are some resources that could help you on your journey.


Fly simulators!
Get a decent radio, for example, a Taranis Q X7 and practice. I fly Liftoff and I love it. Another decent choice should be Velocidrone and there certainly are others. Simulators are also a great way to get throught the winter season.


Fly micro drones!
Micro quads are a great way to have a ton of fun and get into the hobby. Don't let the name mislead you. In 2018, micro quads pack a LOT of punch and should not be underestimated. These two options in particular are awesome to fly indoors and outdoors and won't break the bank: Mobula or Snapper 7.


Fly mini quads!
The FPV mini quad (usually a 5'' model) is a real beast. In some cases could be a bit intimidating at first for beginners as they come with plenty of power, but fear not, keep at it, stay safe and you will soon get the hang of it. In other words, there isn't anything quite like the real thing! I started flying on a Wizard x220 and then went on and built my own quad. There are some really good options out there! And I have my eye set on a Diatone 2018 GT-M540 for season 2019!
