Another video of my journey into fpv - sporting a Caddx Vista with the DJI FPV system.
After waiting for weeks I received a replacement for the fpv lens. Installing it was easy: Warm the old lens and unscrew it (see last video), screw on the new lens, focus, glue. Lots of crashes of course. Two days later the adapter for the SMO 4K camera arrived and finally I'm able to record good quality video (starting at 1.35). Even managed landing on the pad.

Yes. Now I only have to keep the files from corrupting: whenever the power is lost the file is gone. They have to get a fix for that, maybe new files every 30 sec. Happened to me more often than not.

Yes, "real" fpv seems to have its difficulties or at least challenges.
I didn't have the SMO 4K camera (that is the GoPro like additional camera that records the real video footage while the little camera below that just transmits the signal for flying safely to the goggles) connected because I didn't have the right adapter. So nothing changed with the new lens.

Yes. One point for hitting, another for staying in the air ;-)
The signal isn't always sharp enough for me to avoid them and also my skills aren't up there yet.

Ah ok.
Things I don't have to worry about with my RTF drone.

Haha. You're right.
But: This drone is a RTF! Or at least RTbind.

Seriously, what is the opposite of FPV drone?
GPS drone?
Camera drone?
DJI drone?
Mavic-like drone?
Screen operated drone?
