Great FPV tutorial video series. Wish these were around when I first started FPV. I will be sharing these videos to others who inquire about how to get started in FPV.

This video is one for me to download for future reference use. Keep up the great videos, and I'll be flying FPV soon (after reading lots of confusing web pages, which got me nowhere).
