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.

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..
