    Ok so all the jargon can be quite daunting for beginers. Tx = transmitter Rx=receiver, FPV = first person view.
    LOS is line of sight(Not site thats a location)
    Just a few to start the conversation.
    So beginners any questions on acronyms that are stumping you?
    More experienced people can tell what tripped them up or like me ask what is AUW stand for? Any help appreciated:)

    typical classy replies. wonder why this forum doesn't take off.


    please argue how you tried to have a great thread, but turned into a juvenile mocking.

    I disagree, it has taken off.

    I suppose you have looked elsewhere too but for some reason you're still hanging out here.
