  3. Cameron Corrilo on May 27, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    How do you know if your radio convertible with your drone

  4. Sanat Biswas on May 27, 2022 at 6:57 pm

    did you just forget to say what FPV stand for, brah?

  5. kepler 22b on May 27, 2022 at 6:59 pm

  6. Van_lla Droning on May 27, 2022 at 6:59 pm

    i have a deerc d10 and ive crashed it into trees, and onto a roof once, and there is no damage

  7. Jim Mundy on May 27, 2022 at 7:00 pm

    Wow. I know this is a couple years old but exactly what I need. Total noob to FPV. Love your approach. Look forward to following you.

  8. Dave Alva on May 27, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    Perfect. This is exactly what I was looking for

  9. Eden Juarez on May 27, 2022 at 7:01 pm

  14. Teun Paredis on May 27, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    Is a dromida verso good to learn with before i get something good

  15. J Page on May 27, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    What do you think about Holy Stone for a beginner?

  16. Mick Carson on May 27, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Another poorly educated illiterate who thinks drone is a Quadcopter. What school did you actually go, what education did you attain not to know that ‘drone’ is a word, not a name, nor used to name anything that flies. It’s a word used to describe a continuous humming sound and, it has present and past participles and definitions. If ‘drone’ is a name, are its present and past participles and definitions also names and used to name these flying gadgets? And you say you’re educated, you spikka da inglisha, you’re intelligent? PFFFT! Really? Just go back to school and learn the definition of ‘drone’, don’t listen to all other under-educated, low IQ dunces coming on sh*tty YouTube and bragging about ‘drone’ this, ‘drone’ that, yada yada yada…, following them like the sheep, FFS! 🤨

  17. Preston Parker on May 27, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Can i use my spektrum dx6 for drones too?

  18. SupremeTeamFP on May 27, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    Looking to get into FPV. This is a really helpful video. I know Im late to it but still lol, thanks for education man!

  19. Robert Blask on May 27, 2022 at 7:11 pm

    sorry for your watch.

  20. Mr. Nos Boss on May 27, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Very well done video. Thank you for such a time saver. Can’t wait to take flight!

  21. CRypTiC on May 27, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Casie neistat long lost twin lmao

  22. J. Lee McCon. on May 27, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Super helpful. Thank you 🙏🏻🙏🏻

  23. jakob skarving on May 27, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Sorry I ask but, I’m from Denmark. And it looks like I’m only getting a FrSky Taranis X9. Is it good enough.

  24. yanassi on May 27, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Thanks. I’m not a droner, yet. I was planning to get a small drone, then decided to wait to get the best possible goggle first, then get a matching drone and radio that connects well with it. I am now waiting to see what zerohd comes up with. It seems I would benefit with it’s latency and control characteristics.

  25. Superchairs on May 27, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you for making this video 👍👍.. Helps me a lot

  26. Gimbalair on May 27, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    So two years later, what would be the equivalent setup now. Are DJI FPV googles universal? I am looking at a Cinerace 20 with a DJI Mode2 controller? Have you made a new version of this video by chance

  27. Allen Whitlock on May 27, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Where did you get that simulator dongle for your mac? Btw, this video has convinced me to get a drone. Thanks 😒…lol 🤣

  28. Two Gram Man on May 27, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    so thats 500.. might aswel add 200 and get a high end dji fpv lol… least if you dont like it you can sell it

  29. Ben Vallack on May 27, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Great video!! Why did you quit YT?!

  30. Jonathan Fantasy on May 27, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    I wish I could afford that! How lucky I would be

  31. Chase Philport on May 27, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Nice video, popped up in my recommendations. You should make an updated ones now that frsky is kind of irrelevant

  32. GTA Blurt on May 27, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    How can we make a drone acting like a WW2 bomber plane?

  33. Jamie Hercules on May 27, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Any updated ones for 2022?

  34. Pepezão on May 27, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    is skyzone 04x more worthy?

  35. Smallz on May 27, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Brand new to the hobby or wanna try…tinyhawk 3 RTF (ready to fly) decent controller gimbles with enough switches Todo everything explained here, aswel as use with a flight sim, & use with most other fpv drones, the goggles are decent enough with a removable screen for others to watch on while your flying (when you upgrade..(v.nice feature).which will most likely be the 1st thing you want to upgrade).
    Came out after this video so not sure if Op agrees..just my opinion😊..seems these RTF kits are getting alot better quickly!
    Thankyou for the video, plenty of useful information for us beginners!🙏

  36. Dhanush Varadaraj on May 27, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    He looks like got character

  37. trafalgar law on May 27, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Do you think that using smartphone with vr headset is enough for a beginner?

  38. gliebig100 on May 27, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Just watched the vid and ordered my first drone. Got everything in the vid except that I wound up getting the tinyhawk 3. A little confused as to the batteries for it. I want to order a bunch of spares and a charger. What do you recommend for those?

  39. The Wanderer on May 27, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    My house is massive I will just fly this thing inside if I had a VR headset

  40. Omgwtflmaololrotfl on May 27, 2022 at 7:34 pm

    No surprise here as listing overhyped transmitter and fpv goggles.

  41. x1c3x on May 27, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    If I’m not mistaken, this is analog fpv?
    What’s different if I’d like using digital?
    Only info i have is the video is nicer, but higher latency.

  42. Gabriel Alonso on May 27, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Obviously a commercial. Is there any of this reviews real?

  43. Mareks Svedrevics on May 27, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Hi, Guys!

    I’m interested in FPV drones, but I’m a beginner. I’m going to buy a drone, but I’m not sure about the receivers and video transmitters. Will I be able to link my option?

    Thank You Before!

  44. Bringette Awnn on May 27, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    FPV FPV FPV, and what is FPV anyways?

  45. Remington.Creates on May 27, 2022 at 7:41 pm

    Does that controller work for crossfire receivers?

  46. Fauzan Syauqi on May 27, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Great video !!!

  47. Ronnie Paul on May 27, 2022 at 7:44 pm

    $500 for a pair of FPV Goggles…. Anyone who tries to normalize that cost in anyway can not be trusted. Just so we are all on the same page here, Occulus Quest is just $299…. When you consider every single pair of Fatsharks I have seen has been modded to fit the users needs? These mods add up to mnore than the cost of the goggles themselves.

    Think about what he actually said in this video, Spend $700+ on a controller and goggles just to spend $100+ batteries on a childs toy to see if you like the hobby? I am not bashing the OP here, he is absolutely correct. Buying a cheap wifi fpv drone and controller is not going to give you the same expierence. Not even close! The other side of that coin is to buy less expensive gear like $100 goggles and a $50 controller is just throwing money away because you will need to buy modules, recievers, and various other upgrades for the cheap gear just to bind and fly with other platforms…

    Dont believe the hype, you are going to spend $1k dollars for 2.5 minutes of flight time.

    just buy the DJI mini for $300, you will get 31 minutes of flight time on a stable and reliable platform. To get the kind of videos a DJI offers on these DIY/chinese drones you will end up spending $500 on a GoPro…

    Damn Shane from "fight tips" has a brother?

  49. Layton Knight on May 27, 2022 at 7:52 pm

    I am about to get into Drones, but for me I want to put an Air Tag on mine. That way if I crash I just need to get within 25 ft in order to be able to ping and point to it. Thanks for the Video

  50. Yui Senpai on May 27, 2022 at 7:53 pm

    thanks m8!
