    Anyone into FPV racing? Been totally hooked on some of the youtube footage of these things. I used to race buggies years ago, and have flown RC helicopters. Also done quite a bit of paragliding/paramotoring over the years, so am hoping that some of the skills might transfer to drone racing.

    I've just ordered an Immersion Vortex 250 racer, and am currently trying to work out what to buy to go with it. It's a bit of a minefield with a hell of a learning curve. Also started to put together a Quanum-style goggle set, but suspect I'll end up buying some Fatsharks. I've yet to source a radio as everyone seems to recommend a Taranis 9XD+, but nobody seems to stock them without ordering from China. If anyone has experience or advice I'd love to hear it. I'm hoping to be airborne in the next 2 weeks :)

    I looked at the Walkera the other day. Looks real good value for a one-stop solution. I was almost tempted, but my heart is totally on the Vortex.
