    Loving the show way over here in Glasgow Scotland. Very informative, like everyone else I couldn’t wait for the next edition & with the lull inbetween 3 & 4 I was besides myself 🙂 thanks for making a great show.

  2. Another reason people use a different separate FPV camera from the GoPro is the Lag a GoPro video out feed can give.

    Enjoying the show each week
