    RE: hobby king FPV packages

    If you want to get something that has no quality control, no customer service, a one in three chance it will arrive DOA , go for it. But before you do you need to do some research on Hobby King.

    RE: hobby king FPV packages

    Flew a buddy's Dominator based HK package the other day. It seemed ok, but adding OSD I think would make things easier.

    That was my first shot at FPV, and I'm in the same boat (looking at getting into it, but trying to figure out all the options).

    "you get what you pay for" that's true, but depends how you get diffrent price.

    HK is like hobbywalmart, they offer very good price by scale of economy from large purchase order, massive knock off sales, I feel they realy use cost leadership tactic as a weapon to wiped of some LHS or ebay sort of dealers. Some deals are close to whole sale price.

    For FPV stuff, I can see a lot of well branded dealers source same products as HK did from China, e.g. regular tx / rx / camera are just security industry products, no difference.
