Hey all,

Had a blast the other night. Lighting was perfect for recording some drone footage. Id say my new build is officially broken in. The balance of this new frame is really good. Very predictable in air. I'm digging it. The flight has a quicker than normal pace. I'm flying with more aggressive props. The music choice this time around reflects that.

Enjoy the ride!

Always love the sound of the proppeller blades bzzzzzzzing as it takes off. Then music is always good in these vids.

Never could get how you fly that by VR goggles and not spin your head while flying...😥

Great vid and thanks for posting as always👍🏼😊

Id say the first 6 months learning to fly with the FPV goggles on was tough. Had to sit down. I would get vertigo while flying and felt like I was going to tip over. But after a while, you get used to it.

Sometimes I leave in the buzzing from the drone. Most people don't like the screaming of the motors which is why I usually mute it out and overlay some music.

Glad you enjoyed it
Thanks for the feed back!

Does it strain you a lot mental? The concentration I mean.

Amazing as always

Adrenalin. I've been flying for 5 years and I get a rush every time I fly. Aside from participating in sports growing up. Not much gets me amped that much.

Most days Ill only fly 4 battery's a session because I'm exhausted mentally at that point. Its funny you point that out. Sometimes Ill mix in my bigger cruiser drone and do a nice 7 miles lap to clear my mind, then jump back into the freestyle flights.

Hasn't bored me yet.

I explain why I asked. Enjoying your videos for the same reasons you fly.

Adrenaline, or the memory of it when you fly that fast through trees. I thought about how straining this has to be, high concentration, precise muscle work from your fingers constantly adjusting.

That's the same like whipping a fast car through a forest hill. Things fly by, the body constantly adjusts and the eyes, brain and coordination of hand (and feet).... and if you mess up, it's going to be violently fast.

still amazed by your skills, I'm just starting to get that green of my ears with a mediocre RTF drone...

It's alot of fun to be up there without any chemicals, cheers to technology

Its hours upon hours of flight time. Before I started flying (FPV) with the goggles. I practiced on a simulator on my computer. I was able to hook right up with my radio that I use to fly with. That helped a lot. I logged a good 20 - 30 hours on the sim before I ever tried to fly.
