I had been watching FPV videos of flights and I said got to try this hobby. I literally posted "How do I get started?" and that's when I got hooked up with this course. TMac goes through everything you need and explains how everything works. Without the course I would have been bumbling around on line, ordering parts that wouldn't have worked, etc, etc. It saved a lot of time and money. TMac is also constantly uploading videos and staying current with new products that are coming out. The course is a great place to start out!Read Less

My opinion of the Fast Track FPV course it's one of the best things that came to me trying to learn about the topic-did not waste time, got to the point. Also it's not just about the drone itself, it's about the entire spectrum of the hobby-where I can fly and where I can't, and be aware of people when I fly. It did teach me that there are rules and regulations with the FAA, also how to tune up the drone, how to use Betaflight, and how to flash the firmware. Again, it's the best thing that came to me since I started learning about FPV!Read Less

I've been flying quads like the DJI Phantoms for years, but FPV is a whole nother animal. It's not plug and play by any means. It will take you weeks to figure out what you need to get going, let alone how to set it up. Trust me, this requires patience but TMac's Fast Track FPV Course will shorten your learning curve and get you flying.Read Less
Very informative! I was able to update and setup my radio easily after following the instructions in the course!
