Super helpful, thanks for the video. I have one question that I've been wondering about for a while and I hope you can help me. I live in Canada and I really want to try FPV but I was told that I need a ham lisence and I was wondering if that is true or what do I need to legally fly??

I personally do not know what the Ham license issues are in Canada. ibcrazy is my flying buddy but not normally on here this i my channel but i can ask him when we hang out next. I would just call a ham group and ask them if they know.
