Default Who has tried fpv opnce or twice and quit?

Ok, I have searched this forum and the web and I am not coming up with an answer to this.
I am considering buying a good fpv setup but I am concerned that it might be one of those things that is cool, but once you use it once or twice you quit. It is alot of money to spend for something that isn't used.
So, anyone out there dish out the big bucks for fpv and then find out it ends up being one of those things that sits in a box and isn't used after the first few times? If so, can you relate your experiences with it? Thanks!

Interesting. No responses must mean that people who start fpv usually keep doing it. That is good news.

best advice:
start simple!

are you going airplane or multirotor?

stay close and get use to it first. then add on systems if you want.

Tampaflyer is right!! Keep is simple and the cost will be lower. Read as much as you can about it before doing it. Take it slow and I think you will find that it's a lot of fun.

Ready Made RC has everything you'll need, lots of knowledge on what he sells, helpful, and fast shipping. You maybe able to find cheaper stuff other places, but their service is second to none.

If your going to try FPV do in right, get your ham license. It's not that hard, you no longer have to know morse code and there are a lot of practice tests on the internet before you do it for real.
