Help!
I'm a NOOB PLEASE HELP ME!

Hi everyone, i'm the over-enthused fanboy newb you may have all heard about.

Well here are some more NEWB questions from me, so feel free to flame...i mean help me all you can ok?

Question #1-In regards to the radio transmitter, is the left stick for throttle, or is it the right stick?

#2-Instead of running a lipo, can i just run a pack of AA batteries to save on weight?
Or could i just grab the batteres from my smoke alarms and use them? I heard they might last longer and will give me longer flight time?

#3-Instead of using goggles for fpv, can i just use my large 80" LCD tv and take that to meets and just drape a very large black sheet over me, for i'm sure it would be way more immersive?

#4-Instead of running LED lights, can i mount a torch on the front and rear so i can light up the whole car park and maybe have a disco ball spinning underneath? Although i'm sure that would not appeal to people who like to have a beer or two before they fly, hence an alcoholic? If so please bring sunglasses to next meet.

#5-Here's the BIG ONE! VTx! What does a VTx do? If it transmits video feed then whoa for REAL? How does it do that? Introverted...meaning people with their heads up their own arse need not reply here! Cos you know, i wouldn't want to put you out of your comfort zone you know what you mean? Face palm yourself all you want, or better yet, grab your next tinnie and smack yourself in the head with it.

#6
-Can i run 4xCastle Creations 2200kv motors with 4x Mamba Monster esc's with 13" props instead on my 250mm quad frame? I want to go REALLY fast and high so no one can catch me.

Thank you for helping this over-enthused fanboy, i really appreciate it you guys putting up with my newb questions, even though this is a forum and i see posts from others with just 1 post to their names, i did wait awhile until i asked for help and did all the research i possibly could, but as you all know...its the little things that can be hard to figure out you know?

Oh and even though i started this thread, i'll make sure i wont see it through to the end...

Mate, I'd have expected a few questions about the fundamentals of photography so that your event photos might turn out a bit better. I even heard that there are people into RC who've also got good results from camera before!

This thread wasn't meant to be amusing, they are all serious questions?

AussieNewbie-
Why would i ask you about fundamentals about photography if you knock me down about hooking up a VTx...therefore you have just been the newly elected camera man for all future meets so you can put your money where your mouth is.

Looking forward to your pics mate, hope you blow us all away with some excellent shots for i sure as hell can't do it.

I'm just an over-enthused fan boy newb remember?
