    Thank you

    If I have a DJI phantom 3 advanced controller what would I need to build a fpv drone to work with it and will any goggles work

  3. Craig Onken on June 17, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Awesome video! This is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’ve really wanted to advance my drone skills after flying the blade vision for a few months. I just out grew it’s capacities. Looking to start building my own long range quad and cruise they sky’s. With a couple flips of course. Not much of a league racer type of person. Can’t wait to watch the rest of the series. Thank you for taking to time to educate all of ‘us’. Haha. Keep up the good work and the burnt/distressed wood back ground is on the money!!!!!

  4. Theodore LengKong on June 17, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Can you do a full budget build like JB, except with parts picked by you guys?

  5. Brian Evans on June 17, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Even though I’m not a beginner, I enjoyed this video! Looking forward to the battery care video cause I have no idea what I’m doing in that department

  6. Douglas Slater on June 17, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    Your battery can be a moving part if you hit the ground hard enough

  7. DocJay on June 17, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    wow this simplified everything so much.

  8. Hattash on June 17, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Good video!

  9. Dave McLaughlin on June 17, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Thank you. Just what I was looking for. I’m looking forward to what’s ahead.

  10. Kahu Kerr on June 17, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    That aside im still subbing cause you’re very informative

  11. FanzyFPV on June 17, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Great informative video! Love the porn music!

  12. Marcial David Lopez on June 17, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Perfect, thanks a lot!

  13. Kahu Kerr on June 17, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    You sound and look baked asf

  14. Alohakoa59 on June 17, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Wow! You guys are awesome! It shows how serious you are about making us successful, very much appreciated, I would have paid good money for a video series like this, thank you for putting it out here for us

  15. This Guy And His Camera on June 17, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Man, this is EXACTLY what I needed to see. As long time DJI pilot I’ve found myself insanely bored flying. As a result pushing a DJI to go against it’s purpose (cinema-esk photography) can be quite expensive three gimbles /two cameras/landing gear/and multiple props later… wa-la, FPV snaps onto my radar!
    Thanks for getting this info out there. You’ve really helped ‘This Guy’ start to make informed decisions on my soon to make purchases. Be flying with you soon!

  16. DarkSagan on June 17, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    That shirt makes you look like you have a bra on lol. Nice video though.

  17. FlyerTuck on June 17, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Yeah man, good solid explanations. Top-Shelf, top to bottom…

  18. J.J J.J on June 17, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    hello, do the FC without PDB have advantages that the FC (all in one) do not have? Or conversely, do all-in-one CFs have disadvantages that CFs without PDBs don’t have?

  19. Sabino Galvan on June 17, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    I was getting a bit worried

  20. Lets Fly RC on June 17, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    How do I fly like Vortex?

  21. Mark Kenney on June 17, 2022 at 7:49 pm

    Thank you.

  22. Neil Pagels on June 17, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    Wow, it seems I have gotten lucky with hitting the perfect series on my first try!! Starting my research to enter the world of FPV coming from a DJI Air 2s.

  23. Cody on June 17, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    Excellent video. Very well done explaining the components while hinting at all the complexity that’s involved.

  24. Krunked on June 17, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    audio is much better 🙂

  25. Enforcefx on June 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Nice video. Great content!

  26. Alohakoa59 on June 17, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Loved the video and the information. I’ve flown planes, the big goggles and I have great TX’s but I wasn’t sure about the drone itself. I got your sim and we’ll see where it goes. Lift-Off is not great with Steam, real pain compared to Realflight. Thank you for putting the vid together👍🏼

  27. Christine LaBeach on June 17, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    What’s the best already built FPV drone for the new DJI FPV system?

  28. Gunn Gin on June 17, 2022 at 8:01 pm

    What is your opinion on the jumper t16? Or do u recommend something else around this price point?

  29. stoiczfpv on June 17, 2022 at 8:06 pm


  30. long b on June 17, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    4:43 so modern FC’s are all-in-ones or nah? if you get a regular FC does that integrate PDB or is that all-in-one? u didnt really clarify

  31. Bored Guy on June 17, 2022 at 8:09 pm

    My teacher brought me here
