I'd bet that smelled kind of sweet.

Seriously though, I had my first fpv flight last week and my second yesterday. But it's not like I just bought some stuff, threw it on the plane and went gung ho about it. I started planning for this 7 or 8 months ago even before I got the sr. telemaster. This included researching which servos would be stable with a high power transmitter next to them, which frequencies I wanted to use and which rc radio to use that had the best range both stock and/or modified. I poured over all the posted videos here, on youtube, and on vimeo trying to get a feel for which systems had the best quality. Then I used google earth to my advantage to gain familiarity about the area I was flying in identifying landmarks so I could navigate back home.

Even after all this, it was still a big rush the first time I did it. Now comes the tweaking to get it better.
