New beginning in FPV - from south east London

Hey all, im an 18 yr from South east London that is looking to get into the fpv drone hobby. Drones have always fascinated me, and I love the idea of a hobby that is constantly evolving and improving as we advance technologies. I brought a few consumer grade drones over the years but I’ve always wanted an immersive fpv experience. I feel that building a drone myself will help me understand how each part works and what makes up the foundation of a drone.
My plan is to look around for a while on part websites, set my budget and create a fun drone that will last me a while.
I am a complete newbie in drone culture so I am looking forward to getting to know it and it’s community.

Welcome ! Wachcing fpv racing it looks really fun. However just watching it seems way too quick for me to keep up with. Good luck and hopefully we’ll be watching your physics-defying race footage

Hi Louis, welcome from the Black Country.
Beware the evils of FPV, it is the work of the Devil, and you follow this path at your own PERIL. Turn away now whilst you still have the chance. Only evil and despair will result!
You have been warned!!!

What do you mean, I’ve got to take my meds now?

Welcome Louis to GADC :clap: :clap:
