    It’s a shame that under article 16, with the sterile area and flying below 50m, that you still need a spotter. Can’t really see another aircraft being an issue below 50m – unless it’s coming into land in your sterile area, in which case you would hear the thing anyway. And any ground hazard that strays into your sterile area will be clearly visible through your goggles anyway – especially with the DJI HD system. It’s simply a rule that most people will end up breaking at some point. I am lucky enough to live on a farm, so i have a few private fields to choose from when it comes to flying – do i take a spotter with me every time I fly fpv????? I think the answer to that one is rather obvious.

    Great vid. Bit of feedback – your intro music is way louder than your voice so either get deafened by the music or cant hear you. Could you level this in post?

    An fpv drone with a 20 min flight time! This thing has gotta be pretty tame to be getting that long in the air. Are the specs of it out yet

    Spotter, too cute, no one fpv follows it, if your following rules you also needs to be in line of sight, so not allowed behind trees or objects the spotter cannot see threw, another fpv rule no one follows

    Rule one, fly safe, if you feel you are going to put anyone in harms way, STOP

    We have so many trees here a spotter would not be able to see it flying.
