    This thread made me check back in my paypal receipts...bought my first FPV system from Vova back when Rangevideo was called Tinywireless.com in 2004....Good times!

    I first flew FPV back in 2010 on Nitro, gave it up for a while when I got laid off etc.

    HOWEVER, back in 1986 I was cruising around the wheat fields in a Huey and dreamt of doing that in an A4 Turbine powered Skyhawk.....which is ENTIRELY POSSIBLE NOW.

    This very flight in 1986 got me dreaming about it. When I got stressed out it's where I went, always have since I was a kid but not FPV daydreaming..

    I still do, it's called Visualization and it helps to visualize my next flight.

    LOL! Hey I took a break for a good couple years. I feel like a toddler getting back into some of this stuff.
