It covers the broad range of necessary topics such as vehicle selection, control link, video link, component placement, ground station design, interference troubleshooting, and tips for successful flights. It provides photographs of commonly used equipment and schematics of typical setups – including a detailed case study on the author’s own configurations. The must-have guide for any hobbyist new to the exciting world of Fpv.
