    I looked in to it briefly - radio theory, training, practical assessment including Morse code and the costs for things are usually higher in the UK. as i said it could be done but I don't know if it would allow me more power and even if it did for local LOS stuff i have to ask do I need it or do I spend the money and time on Quads

    I'm to quad copters and fpv. Living in Dover Kent is there anywhere to see the Fat Shark goggles before you buy them as I wear glasses and do not know if they would work for me.
    I have just bought a Walkera QR X350 which has fpv in built in the transmitter, I flew it for the first time last weekend but the sat lock does not work, this is being sorted out by the experts. Hope I am doing this blog right as it is my first time

    I wear glasses myself and they have a diopter kit that ALMOST corrects to my poor eyesight. Biggest problem with the lens kit is transitioning between FPV and LOS as there is an extended period where you have no 'eyes' on the craft at all.

    FWIW
