    I have watched these and want to see him hook up the video.

    In the mean time I picked up a toy grade quad to see if I liked it. Well I do!

    Haha, A lot of people seem to be viewing these before posting a racing build list, because the parts are almost the same.

    I going to follow this guide when building my own. It nice to see an entire video from start to finish of a build project, very helpful for beginners.

    I can't wait for the FPV setup. after watching these videos, I know I could build one. And I am starting to think I could fly one!

    It really does on orientation, that I am still getting used to. After being in the air for 5 minutes or so I start to get it really good, but when I re-start i have to get re-used to it.

    Haha, no hope for you at all. Soon you'll be getting a mortgage on your house, and buying barren fields/abandon factories to fly in.

    Investing in the important stuff ya know!

    Haha, living in a tent with a bunch of RC stuff is better than a house pinching pennies to buy RC stuff xD.

    This is a temporary setup. I am going to get a FrSky DJT module and D4R rx.
