Bought this setup off the classifieds on another forum!! Been wanting to try FPV flying forever, finally found what looks to be a real nice setup!!

Specs:
HT FPV Camo Frame
KDA 20-22L Motors
Turnigy AE30a Flashed with BLHELI Multi FW ESCs
APC 10.47 Props
3s LIPO
Naza
Fat Shark PredatorV2 RTF FPV Headset System w/Camera and 5.8G TX

I think this should start me off!!! I have a lot of reading to do! I know nothing about quads and their flight systems.. hahaa... I have flown a few micro quads - ladybird, and MQX.. I can fly them no prob - just never flown a quad this big.. I'm assuming I'll have no problems

Can't wait to try it.

Yes, i hear it takes a bit of getting used to!!! I can't wait to try it!! I plan on hanging a gopro to record HD while flying. This is going to be awesome. I just need to order a GPS module too for some extra peace of mind.

Wow!!! I love this thing!!!! I took it to a field this morning, I can't believe how well it flies!! It's so stable and just has a nice feel to it. I am used to the micro ladybird and this is like going from a foamy to a 75" gasser. hahahaa

Damn. I love it... Even did a flip with it, nice and smooth...

I am uploading the GoPro video to YT now..

Here's to hoping the batteries I ordered show up real soon!! haha
