    Welcome to the Future Hobbies Thread!!

    Hello Everyone

    My name Is Wade Hirsch, founder of Future Hobbies.

    I started my company way back in 2005 at the very dawn of FPV as we know it today. I caught the "aerial video bug" a few years earlier when I mounted a Draganfly Camera & 10mW Transmitter on my electric glider.
    This was my first glimpse of the world from the cockpit of my RC Plane. It's pretty incredible how far technology has come since those early days.

    In the beginning it was Future Hobbies and a small handful of others selling Aerial Video Gear.
    We could be counted on one hand. Everyone mostly offered parts in those days and only the experienced technician had a clue how to make them work together. I recognized a need for a "Plug & Play" System that could be used minutes after taking it out of the box. The rest is history.

    Also, Litle over a year ago I created a website called www.fpvtube.com for our community to upload & share all their FPV videos. It also has a robust marketplace for people to buy and sell FPV related products that functions in the same manner as Craigslist. And its absolutely free! Be sure to check it out.

    I'm really honored to have my place on FPVLAB to reach out to customers.
    Customer service is my mission, I promise all of you that. I'll keep my eye on this forum to make sure I assist all of you as best I can. Also feel free to contact me by email at wade@futurehobbies.com or by phone at 408.459.8433

    Thank you all for the support over the many years and I look forward to making your FPV Experience an amazing one.

    Happy FPV-ing and remember to keep your head in the clouds.

    Sincerely,

    Wade H.

    I just ordered some stuff from your company. You were one of the few people that I could find that had the Immersion Uno Rx in stock. I got that and a couple bluebeams. Will report back when things arrive.

    Welcome to the Future Hobbies Thread!!

    Good to see you here Wade, Like WildWill I have just ordered Gear from you.
    How about adding EMS to your shipping options for us International customers (Australia in this case).
    Just received a package in from the US via EMS = 6 days from whoa to go...
    Cheers.

    Hi Wade!

    I bought my EzUHF tx and 8ch rx from you a few weeks back when you had only one left in stock!
    Delivery was fast and communication was easy!

    Happy to see you on the lab!
