    About Drone goggles.

    "But Choppergirl, I really, really, really want to buy something... RC... expensive!" We're getting to that. Your first purchase should not be a quadcopter or goggles. Your first purchase should be a radio, to use as a USB controller to fly the simulators with. You'll connect it to your...

    LOL, I'll take that as a compliment. Any who, you can't get a sim quad stuck in a tree. If I could, I'd be fishing virtual quads out of virtual trees all day long.

    FPV Beginner's Guide:10 Tips to Make Your Drone More Durable (Part 1)

    A lot more dummies than you think. If you really want the most durable drone, fly the sim. Crash all you want, flip the switch, you're back in the air. Don't spend a dime or a minute more on RC equipment. Learning to fly with a toy in the sky is actually very foolish and excrutiatingly slow and...
