    No way!!! Hey Scotttu! I'm getting back into it myself. My kid is getting into quads so I dusted off the old gear. He's using the 5G4 gear and his old radio. We are cobbling stuff together as we go. Lots of fun. My quad has an ESC in the mail and he's getting quite good at freestyle. It is amazing how well an RTF quad flies and even more amazing how fast kids learn. Hope all is well.Hey @Sentry long time!

    Nice to see some old timers back in here. I never stopped flying. Rebuilding my old X8 wing now. I have a Talon I built last year ready to go for some personal best distance records. And a big glider for pb endurance records.

    Same here! Tried getting into FPV with a high-wing trainer about 6 years ago. Didn't go well, but learned a lot - mostly that I still wanted to fly FPV.
    Turned to brushed indoor quads for a while - got familiar with a few things. Used a monitor on a tripod since I'm farsighted and need glasses for up close viewing.
    Now, finally, I got a decent CineQuad, with 4K HD camera and a pair of FatShark Scouts! What a difference. I'm hooked again!
    Getting out to parks and learning how to improve my flying, tweaking things in BetaFlight, learning all about various pieces of equipment, etc.
    Of course, now everyone is switching to digital HD FPV systems ... maybe I'll be able to pick up discounted used analog stuff now
    I've been flying helis for the past 11 years, and planes for 2. These little sub-250g quads are awesome and the learning potential is what's drawing me in.

    I can't upload pics for some reason ...
