    LMAO ya for some it is. my dad is 73yrs old and everytime I put goggles on him and take him flying, he wobbles side to side like stevie wonder!!!! lately I've been throwing him in my chair to avoid breaking a hip if he falls over. he kinda likes my chair so I leaving it over at his house for a bit. that's why I need to buy a couple cool chairs. a lot of people get vertigo from wearing goggles. they don't bother me none, I sit down in comfort to fly cause im usually stoned

    I always use a chair. I can fly standing, but I fly more precisely when sitting on a chair, a rock or just lean towards something solid. Don't feel like a TBS logo would make any difference though.

    I can't believe you flew FPV and stood unless using a monitor.

    I stand for most of the things I do. I feel that sitting down I have less control but if I plan on flying FPV I better get used to it quickly.
    doobie the username makes more sense now lol. I wish I could but I get tested every 20 days with the new FDA protocol. If I come up even barely positive I am screwed

    Same here, since I am a contractor, I can be "random" tested by either TSA or DHS, which is not a problem because THC, or the durative they test for, has not been in my system for 26 years now.

    The upside is, I have saved enough money by not buying that crap anymore to buy a ranch in La Belle.

    Miami prices for an oz. per the DEA = $300.

    That's insane.

    buy it??? man I find the shit every year in our corn fields. tons and tons of it. Hell, up here bikers have been known to "borrow" a little spot of their own amongst the corn, and drop a nice little envelope in the farmers mailbox at harvest time eh. the other kinda green. that's how ive been able the last 30yrs or more, to afford the extras in life like the chopper in my garage and various hot rods ive enjoyed over the years. now FPV toys.

    finally got a chair to sit on. I highly recommend the chair Steel David uses along with the backpack from REI, pricey but nice. I scored big on Craigslist yesterday. Freaking awesome deal. I got for $500
    -the chair
    -the backpack
    -xhover element 5" rtf with FPV gear
    -taranis xd9plus
    -2 cheap 50w chargers
    - all his tools
    -6 spare motors of which two are just good for parts
    -fatshark hd v2
    -bunch of spare parts, receivers, leds, fc,etc
    -46 dal v2 props assorted colors 2,3,and 4 blade
    - 5 1300mah 4s and 1 3s battery " if I get a season out of them I would be happy
    i got everything cleaned up and working and I had to spend another $18 on the xhover to get it working, $21 to change the taranis shell due to a gouge and $36 on the goggles but that's because I didn't want to wear the headband and the foam that somebody else sweat into. I got the new faceplate with fan just because for a few bux more it came with the foam.
