Cant do it

I try to fly just looking at the monitor and boom I crash into the ground.
How do I keep altitude ? I think I can use it to frame a shot at 100 feet up. Flying thru trees or around the field 20 feet off the ground no way. What is the secret ? What can I do to improve it..? I am going to try it with the FreeX next. That has altitude hold. Might make the difference , I do see people doing it with out that aid .

If it flies, I can crash it.

Get yourself a Blade Nano FPV and fly it inside and when you can do that you'll find it easy to do outside with something bigger. Particularly, under and around tables and chairs can be very challenging.

Also, IMO Goggles are superior to a monitor for FPV, particularly racing or flying "close quarters". More immersive.

i too learned on a tv. there is a trick to it first take off LOS get some altitude. then make sure you know where your out fly for a few seconds then look at your plane go back and forth. soon you will get it it could take days and days doing this over and over again tell you have it down. hope this helps
