    For those who wonder if you can learn to fly a drone on a sim, the majority of my stick time was in front of the computer and some LOS flights and this is the first extended FPV flight (two batteries worth) and I chose to fly in my front yard instead of the open air of the backyard to work on my alt control and moving around obstacles.

    I got a bit worried when I heard the car coming up the street.

    I saw that lol the cars in my neighborhood are used to me flying my whoops over the road. I won't fly anything over a 100 size around traffic though, less damage if something goes wrong lol.

    That's one of the big reasons I do not plan to go into the larger quads, that and I do not have to go to parks to fly. I can build all manner of tracks and courses in my yard with plenty of room to spare.

    Yeah but there's something to be said about flying a 220 size 300 meters over scenic forested land that is just AWESOME! A tiny whoop with 25mW vtx just won't cut it but to each their own.

    Maybe once my FPV abilities dwindle I might go for high altitude flying. :)

    I'm thinking about getting this little guy for flying around the house and over the street in front:

    The LDARC ET100. Comes with brushless motors and a 100mW vtx. Looks perfect for learning to fly in acro mode.

    Nice!

    This one caught my eye if/when I go brushless, the Arris x90

    After watching reviews I am thinking that I will build my own to get better parts.

    This is the heart I plan to insert to start.

    I might build myself a micro someday but for now I've decided building these tiny machines isn't for me lol.

    I just like to fly the little beasts.:cool:
