Very Slow FPV System for entry level or first time FPV pilots

I started with goggles and a quad (emachine 250) but kept crashing. So, I went to a slower flying system that was more comfortable to control.

I purpose built a large simple, dollar tree foam board plane to start FPV with. That way if I crashed it and destroyed it I wouldn't be heart broken. The initial flights were very stable and slow and manageable. Once I knew the FPV gear was reliable, I changed out the wing for a large glider wing I built that I really like. This plane Is stable, smooth and an absolute pleasure to fly FPV. ( you can see the original wing above and behin it in the picture.)

Simple FPV slow stick, been thought hell but nothing packing tape and glue won't fix. Have an owl camera on there, cheap turnigy motor, cheap tower pro servo, dtf openlrs reciever, and a garbage 600mw TX.
