Hello Everyone! Tom here. Today I wanted to share a new resource on HorizonHobby.com.

IF you have been inspired as much as I have by First Person View (FPV) you need to check out their FPV School in their resource web page. Filled with useful information for the beginner, as well as giving buying advice and product tutorials on the many FPV products that Horizon Hobby distributes.

I myself have been a long time RC enthusiast of all creeds. In the last 2 years have been bitten by the FPV Bug. Quad Freestyle is my main go to. But I also participate in some recreational races. Recently I have been doing A LOT of Surface FPV because; One it is really fun, and two because their is less risk involved ;).

Anyways, enough about me, check out this link for the FPV School and watch for the fun little cut ins they did that allows the viewer to take the time to get a better understanding of some of the more technical aspects and terms.

Experience the Awesome Versatility of the SPMVA2510 Heavy Duty FPV Camera System

Presented to you is a video outlining the versatility, Durability and high quality of the Spektrum VA2510 Camera System. This system is a excellent choice for Hobbyists that are looking for a clean and easy FPV solution for their; Float Planes, RC Boats, dirt and road racing. For a 25mw video transmitter it gets phenomenal range! More then enough for Tracks,  Lakes, and Park Flyer Airplanes!

We partnered with Fatshark to produce this incredibly easy to use FPV System. Just provide up to 6v of power off the Receiver using a  normal servo port with extension and sticking it to your model with some double sided tape . Pair it with one of our FPV Headsets, like the Spektrum Focal FPV Headset, and you will be experiencing the excitement of FPV on your favorite RC model in no time. This Camera opens up a whole new world of FPV racing! Great with boats because it is extremely water resistant And strong enough to handle the shock of jumps and tumbles on your local RC Dirt Track!
