What I would like to do here is cover my FPV project, from “A to Z” of what it takes to build an FPV craft, from the plane and what it needs to the “ground station” and what is needed as well. This blog/review will continue to grow and change as the project evolves, and it is my hope that others who are interested in FPV will be helped by the information here. Having said that, lets go!
