Like most people who have been in the hobby for a while, I started with analog VTX’s for FPV. But, after having a taste of what digital FPV was like after the chance to try a flying buddies DJI Mavic 2 with the DJI goggles, I kept an my eye on the digital FPV space, waiting for an alternative to DJI to enter the market. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is not because there was anything wrong with the quality of the DJI gear or VTX link - there is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

Finally, though, by December, something suitable came into stock (although a little overkill.. 45A Foxeer Reaper AIO), and onwards with the build.
