Well Ive never flown FPV in the evening and the other night was the perfect evening to try. I have this Kwad for some time and decided it needed an upgrade from 3S to 4S to make it fun again



with a 3 dollar frame you cant lose really.

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.

I can't do FPV on a quad. Too scary. I thought of fitting it to one of mine and sending the Quad on a mission and going along for the ride though. Just waiting on my new camera to arrive.

I think you will find FPV on a Kwad is easier to fly then LOS. To be honest I can not fly a Kwad line of sight I get to disorientated. Nice part about fpv is left is always left and right is always right etc. Now flying at night I dont recommend unless you have a camera that will switch from color to black and white. Even if it does I found seeing the ground is very difficult. Ill stick to flying at dusk or the "golden hour"

Happy flying may your crashes be limited and if they are not limited let them be cool.
