    Modified my 80 dollar drone for FPV!! Fun as heck

    I have a few drones now. One of them is the Tello. You can get them for 100 bucks or less. I was cleaning out some cabinets last week and come across a bunch of cameras and transmitters I use to use for RC trucks and cars. I put a 5.8Ghz camera/xmiter on the drone and dusted off my old Fat Shark goggles. Pretty cool flying First Person View (FPV).

    Better pic of the lights (there is one underneathas well) Super bright! They were like 50 cents each.

    Have you watched any drone racing? That FPV looks to be quite the adrenaline rush!

    TMT ... too much technology :-)

    I bought a video cam my car. The box is still unopened.
    Work with what you got ... not what you hope for.
