Wow, this is such an amazing feeling...
It's going to become a nice addiction!

Pretty awesome feeling isn't it! I'm brand new to both RC flying and FPV, but I personally found flying FPV a lot easier. For me, it was easier to correct mistakes before they happened. Starting to bank the wrong way? Easy to apply corrective measures since I'm looking through the plane's eyes, rather than trying to figure out orientation on the ground.

I thought landing was a lot easier too. Just bring it in low and slow. Although I found that it is easy to misjudge how much runway you have left while coming in for an FPV landing...almost skidded into a tree
