Hey all,

I've been a drone builder, pilot, and tester for a couple years now. Its a wonderful hobby! A bit time consuming. But to actually get out there an fly is an amazing experience. Closest thing IMO to actually flying like a bird.

I fly with FPV goggles, so I see real time video from the drone ( like a birds eye view )

Here is my latest video:

This particular drone goes over 100Mph. An avg. flight is only around 5min. It consumes quite a bit of power to fly like this. I peaked at one point during this flight at 134Amps. This one has a range of about a mile.

If you dig the video and want to see more, feel free to sub to my YouTube channel.

If you have any questions about the hobby, feel free to ask!

Very cool man. Mad props!

Detail all what gear it takes to get to this point? Optics and the like.

Nice to see a fellow drone pilot.
Commercial drone pilot here.
Been building and flying for 15 years now.
Started with helis-T Rex
Then got into quads once they became available.

I have a crap load of Frankenstein’s I’ve built.
And have a P4P, p3A x2 and a P3S. As well an Event 38 E384 and an Elios. Those are my commercial drones for survey and photogrammetry and underground inspection.
I got a couple videos on my channel from underground inspections.

I fly FPV with Fat Sharks.
My 2 main favs are a woafly and xcsource.
Then my Frankenstein are a combination of custom 3d printed frames and parts from a variety of sources.
Lots and I mean lots of crashes.
I’ve easily put 15k so far into FPV racing.

Keep it up bro.
It’s rewarding when you feel like you become part Jedi with pre-cog reflex’s lol.

Same here, been building for over 5 years now.

I have some frankinflyers

I started with tricopters and then moved on to quads..

Fatshark V2's for me atm. Tinywhoop season is here so that's what i'm up to.

Thanks for sharing, you'd be surprised at how many people think we are spying on them

I'm into 3D Heli flying. I've been at it since 2011 pretty hard. I've always loved helicopters!
I used to hear a Bell 47 coming by the house when I was kid like 7 or 8 and every time it came I'd run out of the house busting through the screen door with all my might to see it.

That's a nice flight seems cool to have cockpit view. I've not done any camera work on my heli stuff.
