I’ve been spending more time practicing freestyle/new tricks and less time doing long range/cinematic shots. Having so much fun getting better at freestyle! It has given me a newfound love for FPV and why we fly these things!
Also, FPV has truly saved me from a lot of depression. I suffer from back injuries/pain and am selling all my dangerous ‘toys’ to buy more FPV gear. I enjoy this hobby so much more than riding dirt bikes, snowboarding, etc.. Not being able to do the things I loved has opened doors for me to find what I really enjoy. We live in weird times, with even stranger technology… I only hope I can learn from the past as well as use the present to create a better future.
On a side note, I ‘m considering starting a new channel to help people with my other hobby (gardening). Its been a few quick years but now have 20+ fruit trees, several types of berries and a handful of vegetable beds. I would like to share with others and show how to grow your own food naturally on the cheap.. Please comment if you have any ideas for a channel name! I was thinking of something similar to ‘Wind Walker’ like ‘Edible Earth’ or ‘Super Soiler’ lol.

You can still purchase the same kit but with the blaster’s from RR (hope they bring more options back):
