Hello to all, fellow pilots! I began flying a couple of weeks ago and I was told by the friend who built my quad, who happens to have a YT channel, that if I improve fast enough I can start posting my videos on their channel. I was wondering, just out of curiosity, what do you guys think about their videos: are they good or bad? what would you change in their style/locations? I hope it's not OT or forbidden, I was looking for an opinion from unknown Fpv pilots, also because critiques can improve the overall quality.

Hello fellow pilots! Just wanted to check in and say hi, I'm Italian and I've been piloting drones for quite some time, but I'm new to Fpv. A friend of mine introduced me to Fpv some time ago and I watched him as he was soldering my first drone. After many months of work due to covid it was finally time for my maiden flight, which went horribly wrong. XD Started well, in a matter of secs lost control and vtx on my goggles, the screen was pitch black. Spent 7 hours walking in the area of the crash, looked for the 5" quad everywhere, in woods, bushes, river beds, on trees...thought I lost it. Two months later I got a phone call from an unknown number: it was this guy living in the area who found my quad. Went back there to get it, and surprise, after 2 months under rain and snow, the only damage where a prop and the gopro mount which was half destroyed. Checked that all the other parts where ok and went to a field in a much easier location with my building-quad-friend and his girlfriend and this time it all went well, started gaining confidence with the quad and was amazing! It all went well except for the fact that I got a punctured tyre and I didn't realize until it was evening and time to leave, but this is another story. lol I'm here to learn a lot, help when I can and share my flights as soon as I dare to mount a gopro on. Below there's my current build, I'm going to start assembling my second one very soon.  Happy flying!

  Youtube seems like it's saturated full already of FPV quad copter videos,...   Product Review Videos, How to Videos, and now... Livestreams...   When everybody's going right, I'm thinking - go left...?  and try something different?  I'm thinking about making a little seires where I discover new visual appealing aerobatics tricks, and then make a short video about each trick I've found that looks interesting someone could use themselves. What the trick is, what it looks like when you do it, and how to do it so you can add it to your bag of flying tricks.   Try and keep each video insular and short to one trick each, so you can pick and chose what you want to watch. I watched one video of Bardwell trying to teach a trick (a backslide), and I was like... eh.. meh.  I tried it out in the sim, and I was like... I don't think I'd ever use it... Then I went back to watching fpv product porn and searching how to videos.         Would you watch something like that, a short video about doing a visual interesting trick with a voice over?  Is it worth bothering making? Sample Intro: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhYY5zjp_rQ   Recording and eding videos takes a lot of time and work, and I'm thinking I'd just be adding more rubbish flotsam to the internet. In the 11 years I've had a Youtube channel, I've never made a single penny off of Youtube (meh), so I'd have to have fun making each video or I'd probably quit pretty soon. I'd probably rather just go back to sleep and dream...   Choppergirl / http://fpv.air-war.org http://youtube.com/choppergirl http://hba.air-war.org http://air-war.org
