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.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
