    This is a non-DJI video. Just to keep things fresh I figured I'd try my hand at FPV racing. I've been successfully flying P2's, P3's, Solo's and a variety of toy drones for quite some time now but this is a whole different ball game!

    First time I flew my 250, I got her stuck in a tree for a day and a half. Eventually lost her in a lake. Hope to recover the SD card from that one some day. Have fun flying your toy!

    You may want to consider a Marco Polo. Good luck!

    Nice I’m glad that worked out so well for you. My next drone purchase will be a mid level FPV racer. I’m getting the itch.
