Learning to fly FPV can be daunting- It’s often recommended to purchase a NanoQX that is cheap and crashable to learn to fly with. They also make a FPV version of it if you have the extra cash burning a hole in your pocket. Once you get the basics of flying down you may want to look into a building a larger, more capable aircraft.
Most technical information can be obtained from from places like Flite Test, RCModelReviews, OscarLiang.net, RCGroups, FPVLab, and Youtube. Anyone can get into flying FPV with a bit of time, patience, and practice. Just start small and have fun!
From a small Nano QX kit to full sized aerial photography platform. For those interested in getting into the Hobby it can definitely be a money sink. For example Horizon Hobby makes and sells a micro FPV Nano QX that can fly indoors & outdoors, comes with goggles & transmitter, everything needed to get going – but it’s roughly $400. It is arguably one of the best ways to get started though as the goggles can be used with larger, more fun, platforms.
