First thing, I am not the worlds best piolet and these are only my thoughts;
When i started i flew reactively.
In the beginning , without a datdbase of mooves to call on I was flying in reaction to what the quad was doing.
As a result proximity flying was neer impossable.
After a large number of crashes and time on the sim ,things started to come together.
I started flying predictively. What does this mean , well , after figuring out what the stick inputs actually do i started entering moves earlier and earlier ( doing fast hairpins is good for this ).
This did 2 things 1 it teaches controll , not to over shoot , 2 it brings what you see in the goggles in sink with the feedback you get from your fingers when you move the sticks.
In other words you start to disreguard the time delay between sticks and quad.
After much moar data base building predicting what the quad will do becomes instinictive
That locked in feel happens when the lag of the quad matches the auto advance you put into stick inputs.
A beginner will never feel this. dont buy a quad because a reviewer says its locked in ,thats his experience not yours.
Sneek peek at my next build Prestressed concrete .
Inspired by Quadstar drones . Thanks for all the inspiration.
Experimental build . this is all for now.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
