Welcome to the dark side…

Couple of things that jump out…

Antennas. Well worth you investing in some more.

Props… those props are terrible… I would order a few packs of dal 5045’s to get some practise with as they are very durable.

Do you have a charger or batteries arranged?

And what is the full spec of the quad?

DJI HD FPV.

You Must Buy It.

Fidelity = Unmatched

Range = Absolutely unbelievable

Penetration = See Above

Cost = Ouch!

Yes, that is the Goggle view :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

(View in 4K if you can)

Props for a beginner (mainly due to durability) https://www.hobbyrc.co.uk/dal-t5046c-cyclone-tri-blade-super-durable-propellers-2x-cw-2x-ccw-black

Antennas… remember they need to match polarisation

I’m a big fan of menacerc antennas. Cheep as chips and work really really well.

It’s only my opinion, but I would recommend flying fpv with a zero degree camera angle. Fpv takes a little getting used too. It did for me anyway!

Nooooooooooooooooooooooo

0degree can angle means as soon as you start pitching forward your looking at the ground and not where your going. If you want a shallow angle go with 10-15degrees.

You can also setup acro trainer to limit the amount of angle you can get to. But I wouldn’t recommend that really.

Just saying that fpv can be quite disorientating. Only my personal experience. Oh. Tony. Sit down in a deck chair :rofl:
