Default FPV for Beginners in AMA Today

Gee, I wonder how many of our resident "experts" in FPV actually have a HAM license. Or even better, how many are not.

Actually quite a few. In this poll :http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ght=ham+licens over 50%. Now I don't claim to be an "expert" , but it was the first thing I did when I decided on flying that way. What are your chances of getting caught if you don't have a license? Not very good, but if you do, the fine is quite high. The test is easy with a few hours of study, there is no morse code, and there are lots of study guides out there to help you. I liked the article in AMA today. It touched on some of the basics of flying by video that you should know.
