    Hello from East Tennessee

    I got into quad copters about 6 months ago for the purpose of promoting my business. I buy and sell rural acreage throughout the southeast. I started out with a cheap quad from xheli($50) then upgraded to another cheap heli($250). I'm now ready to get serious with aerial photography/video. I'm not sure this is the place to ask questions but here they are...please let me know if they need to be asked elsewhere.

    I sell land ranging from 5 to 100 acres and feel I can best describe the land through video and hopefully aerial video soon. I've never flown by FPV. I have a gopro 3 black(the latest I think).

    -is FPV the way to go? Or can I just continue to fly like I am now( non FPV)
    -can the DISCOVERY PRO be built to fly non FPV or would I be better off with a different model if I choose to go non FPV.

    I'm sold on the use of a quad copter for video footage and I will be upgrading in the very near future. I am very passionate about my business and hope to learn the right way to achieve my goals(good video footage of my products). Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

    FPV makes video taking so much easier.

    FPV easier?

    Is using FPV easier to fly or is it easier for doing video?
