    Welcome to the lab... Rene' here. Bow, NH here. Reverb eh? Personally I would put either a BrainFPV RE1 or such with its complement PDB, or maybe a Micro Vector. Running 3s or 4s? Probably 4s, You'll need comparable ESC's for the motors... I like the Castle's but have used Spiders with good results.. What video tx / rx combo are you going to use? RMRC makes a great set up then again so does TBS.

    I'm not sure what rx&tx I should get. I'm very new to the drone scene. I have a traxxas aton but looking to get into dog and I would like to build it. Also not sure what goggles to get.

    What's the diffrence between the brain dog and the kiss? [ I see alot of YouTube. Idea with people using th kiss]

    Thanks guys :]

    Hey Mike, Most that I know of here use the FrSky Taranis, its a great Tx and you can get all sorts of different rx's depending on what you want. As for goggles that's a personal preference. If you want lets get together sometime I'll show you the difference of the goggles I have ranging from Fat Sharks to a headplay style set of Spektrum DVR goggles. You can use the Kiss for a controller... I am not familiar with it but I know a lot of pilots use them. I like the Brain RE1 and the MicroVector as I'm familiar with them. The easiest drone to build and fly so far is the Tiny Whoop, you might think about building one of those first. Where bouts in NH are you ? PM me if you want to meet sometime.

    I tend to run Runcam's for my fpv camera... and have used the rmrc vtx along with the Team Black sheep vtx's very successfully. Go Pro's are the main stream cameras but the chinese knock offs like the FireFLY6S or 8S are cheaper alternatives..
