No the money's still transferring and it'll be given to 3DHS on the 22nd. Then it will ship out.

I had to do an E-Check, remember?

Cool, 1212 posts!

Hmm not sure about an unboxing, may have to skip it if my dad is working from home again.

I can't do any videos in the basement when my dad works at home because he works down in the basement too, aka the man cave... and I can't disturb his work.

An ECheck takes money from the bank account that's incorporated with your PayPal account instead of using up what's in the balance of the PayPal account... it takes a little bit longer to process. I don't know why I had to do that, I had enough in my PayPal balance... IDK

Boom. I may get into FPV for the holidays this year... less than $300 for TX/RX/TV/Cam/Ant./Cables is pretty good!

Dan, I'd say that FPV is probably a go big or go home type deal. I haven't looked into it much, but I've heard that getting cheap gear is a good way to get lousy FPV.

I finished the new Slipso today. Weighs 18.6 ounces. I can get that down to like 13-14 if I put in a lighter power setup, and the particular one I have in mind would still be good for 120ish. I'll have to explore my options a little.

I've been researching FPV for a full year now. Lawmate and Fatshark are the top brands, cheap gear is China stuff like from HK. In fact that same Lawmate RX is very similar to the one that Team Blacksheep uses to fly over 10km away.
