I have a pretty low paying job and finally got some starter planes to learn the basics. I’ve been using flight sims for almost 20 years and got to ride in a real piper and try out the controls, but never an RC plane. I do have some RC experience with the Blade CX2’s and the Blade CP Pro, but I think planes are my calling with FPV.
I purchased a Spektrum Dx6i and the Parkzone UMX MIG 15 DF and crashed it about 10 times so far. It still flies tho 🙂 My last purchase was the Parkzone P51-D Mustang which is MUCH easier to fly.
I just ordered the FT 3D Speed Build Swappable kit and hope to get that together soon after it gets here 🙂 I will try out some FPV stuff in the FT 3D when I figure out what to purchase. I have seen the hobby king $59 starter set, but I have a Hero 2 and I’m leaning towards the OpenLRS stuff so I can add GPS and some other fun things. I still haven’t figured all that out though.
I just found flitetest.com a few weeks ago and now this site! You guys are all awesome! Keep up the great work and info!
