    i am on a tight 140-150$ budget and want to get into fpv with a tinyhawk but i cant find all the things for my budget the lowest i can find for the whole kit is 220$ any recommendations

  2. Thom Phillabaum on June 22, 2020 at 7:11 am

    Great video! Is there someway to use your phone to view the FPV? $300-$700 for goggles is something I’d like to avoid for as long as possible.

    Oh damn! You got the James Matthews CREATE merch

  4. Stefano Martire on June 22, 2020 at 7:12 am

  6. ThomasYou2011 on June 22, 2020 at 7:15 am

  9. st3speed !! on June 22, 2020 at 7:18 am

    Do any of the items on the link come with charger or do I need to buy a separate charger for each item ?( newbie)

  10. Duan Peters on June 22, 2020 at 7:18 am

    Great video very informative but I have a Mac so which simulator would you recommend that’ll work with Mac? Thanks…..

  11. Alex Pickering on June 22, 2020 at 7:19 am

    Been flying tiny whoops for a year. DJI FPV 5" Quad is gonna be my last purchase of 2019. We can race this Spring!

  13. Mohamed Rifaat on June 22, 2020 at 7:23 am

    Thanks alot for the video , i am a beginner in fpv and i have a question to you :
    When you say that THE x7 radio binds with the tiny hawk and other toy drones does this mean that i dont need to buy and install a reciever on the tiny hawk ? I mean the x7 binds with THE existing One on it ?

  14. FLYWITHAFATGUY on June 22, 2020 at 7:24 am

    Good beginer video!

  18. THE SPIDEY LEE 23 on June 22, 2020 at 7:28 am

    I’m only 4 mins into the video and I am subscribing because you got straight to the point

    Your vocalizing what we need as well as adding text to the screen, so I appreciate the clarity

    And you’ve given price ranges and upgrade Intel on all the items.

    Great job!

  19. DstruX on June 22, 2020 at 7:29 am

    Nice vid man. This kind of info delivered this clearly would have definitely have helped when I first started. Good job. Subbed

  20. Christian Ankney on June 22, 2020 at 7:30 am

  25. Mitchell Dong on June 22, 2020 at 7:36 am

    Great breakdown, Greg. I didn’t realize how accessible this was. I may have to be adding a few of these items to my wishlist and resist diving deep into this hobby too 😬

  26. Mr Gauss on June 22, 2020 at 7:36 am

    Dig your production value 👍 Great vid. Keep em com’n

  27. IbI f#cking Random on June 22, 2020 at 7:39 am

    Real Setup for a total beginner: TinyHawk II RTF 1-2S ( Price: US $183.59/ Googles have build in Fan! )

    so you dont have to spend 600+ to see if it is a hobby to jump in…. you can make an upgrade later with a better Transmitter and Googles ( i choose the FrSky Xlite S EU-LBT and FatShark Scout Googles) and a load of PowerPacks (1S Tattu R-Line 3.7V 500mAh, 4-6min Flighttime)

  28. Rainy Rivers on June 22, 2020 at 7:42 am

    Just wanted to say thanks man I tried watching 3 different videos on fpv and I thought it was to advance and ended up here and wanted to say thanks for the video it explained things great

  29. Zach_ Freyman_47 on June 22, 2020 at 7:44 am

    I’ve been in the sport/hobby for a couple years now and I have to say this is one of the best videos I’ve ever seen on how new people can get involved in FPV flying. Great work! Keep going with the videos!

  30. RosscoStix on June 22, 2020 at 7:45 am

    How many blades on your props has nothing to do with turtle mode, turtle mode is a BF setting !

  31. Veggie Nuggets on June 22, 2020 at 7:47 am

    thx <3

  32. bob best on June 22, 2020 at 7:47 am

    Greg these vids are easy for me to learn me being a newby but on the bottom left side on th
    e q x7 is the socket there to charge the battery?

  33. Lee Fall on June 22, 2020 at 7:47 am

    6-700 for goggles!!! I hope they pick up every TV station to for that money.

  34. KubotaManDan on June 22, 2020 at 7:49 am

    This video is just what i needed, the products available are mesmerizing to one wanting to get started in FPV. Like you I didn’t want to purchase a device that would limit my advancement into the hobby. This is a great place for me to start, I like the mind set of keeping it affordable & flight simulator suggestion. I’ll be looking into this purchase & will need help with binding. New sub & thanks .

  35. CLAY on June 22, 2020 at 7:52 am

    I just want to fly like these drones because I don’t have the money to get really into it so can anybody help me with finding a controller who isn’t that much expensive

  36. Chuco Fishing on June 22, 2020 at 7:53 am

    Bro I bought a new drone a iflught nazgul5 6s I can’t get it to lift off

  37. Adrian Guerra on June 22, 2020 at 7:55 am

    Only have one battery rn 😢

  38. Amir Mehler on June 22, 2020 at 7:56 am

    Very nice coverage! I sure hope nubes find this one before some other “beginners guides” out there that are missleading

  39. Parker Greene on June 22, 2020 at 8:00 am

    Absolutely amazing video thoroughly explains everything and helps understand.

  40. MadUrsli on June 22, 2020 at 8:01 am

    First of all: thanks a lot for this video! I’m thinking of starting to fly FPV. Now I have to choose between a Taranis Q X7S or a X9 Lite. What are the pros and cons of these remotes? Which would you recommend? I could buy both of them for approx the same price second hand. Thanks for your support!

  41. Toty RZ on June 22, 2020 at 8:02 am

    So, the tinyhawk is a toy drone, hu? Really?

  42. Agent К видео on June 22, 2020 at 8:03 am

    11:09 can I be a total j3rk and say that it’s not a backslash, but rather a forward slash? Sorry, it’s a pet peeve. I hope you don’t mind. Great video. Thank you for all the info.

  43. hondabeast101 on June 22, 2020 at 8:03 am

    This is exactly the video that I was looking for. It had the details that helps me make decisions about the things I need to get. Thank you very much!

  44. Jacob Posocco on June 22, 2020 at 8:03 am

    I don’t have enough to buy.

  45. Timothée Ferreol on June 22, 2020 at 8:04 am

    Very concise, well explained, well filmed ! You deserve much more view ! Great job, thank you

  46. J3TV on June 22, 2020 at 8:06 am

    Good video man! I’m looking to get into FPV now in your video was the first popped up in my search. When I started watching I was not disappointed. Thanks for the good information! You got a sub from me

  47. MOSES FILMT on June 22, 2020 at 8:07 am

    Cool Video! Really good quality! Keep doing them and upload a little more frequently 😉👍
