I am so glad I found FPV, I have this addiction to flying but working in IT means i'm usually in a cold bunker underground so I gave up to just flying in my dreams (literally) but now I can actually experience it.
So in the past I've built RC cars but never a plane, my late father and his best friend were heavily into it but i never go into it until i discovered FPV (the apple doesn't fall far from the three I guess)
That being said after moving to the states I need to purchase all my gear from scratch again and after reading countless pages, watching hours of instructional and product review youtube videos, I've compiled a list of what I want to fly..... let me know your thoughts guys:
CK's RiteWing ZII
ZII Battery Bay
O.S. Motor OMA-3820-1200
70A Graupner ESC
10x6 Aeronaut CAM folding prop
Graupner 9kg servos
TBS Power Supply
Lawmate 2.4GHz Video Tx
EzOSD + current sensor
Fatshark Dominator Video Glasses
Turnigy nano-tech 3300mah 3S 35~70C x4 (2 spares)
Cellpro 10s 260W 10A Balancer/Charger
I'm still undecided on the radio but considering I'm flying pretty much the TBS setup I'm thinking about going with the Graupner MX16 HoTT and the EzUHF Tx that they recommend.
As I previously mentioned I'm starting from scratch again after not having touched anything RC for 6+ years so I'm always open to suggestions, opinions, tips or plain old "If you (Blank) You're gonna have a bad time" quotes.
