Some FPV racing stuff
« on: July 04, 2017, 03:30:36 AM »
Hi guys,

Havn't posted here for some time... my poor helis are rusting since I've been into FPV Quads.

I should pull my finger out and dust off some of my helis - lol

Here's one of my latest racing vids - too much fun :)

Nice vid, thanks for sharing this.

Ya, FPV, esp racing drones, is pretty addictive.  For a while all my LOS 3d planes and heli's were collecting dust.  Now I force myself to at least take out one of these every fly-day.

Recently I got back into playing with Vtol's (hybrid plane/heli) both LOS and FPV.  So many diff facets to this hobby it's easy to get diverted and immersed.

Lots of Blade Heli's, TT X50E, Ion-x, HC/BD3sx on most
Lots of E-Planks, multi's, now into FPV, MAAA Gold Wings, Heli's and Planes

Hi there fellas.

I'm taking a stab with the FPV craze too.  I have a Blade Inductrix and a pair of FatShark V3 Dominators.

Unfortunately I get queasy after a few minutes of FPV flight :(   I've had lots of experience with sea-sickness over the years and migraine headaches are associated with blurry vision and dizziness for me.

Maybe I'm just prone to this reaction for some reason.

Any tips?

I'm going to try those lens inserts for the goggles.  Not sure they will help, but worth a try.  I need to wear reading glasses but distant vision is still good.

Try to sit down or at least rest yourself against something solid.

sorry for the late reply - yes, some people do not like the goggles...

As Tom says - best bet is to sit down in a solid chair and see if that helps.

Maybe a lot of short 1min flights may help you get used to it before you get sick..
if you are lucky, your flights will get longer and longer slowly without feeling sick.

Fingers crossed.. everyone is different...

PS: the lenses fat shark sell only correct short sight unfortunately... so if your far vision is good, the goggles should be clear already..
