    Hello there fellow fisherman/phantom pilot.

    I'm in the South Houston area. Alvin/Manvel to be exact. Just got into this hobby, and happen to have a great flying field at my house. Looking for fellow pilots that could help me learn some stuff. Hit me up and come on out today, cause I fly fpv everyday.

    Also if anyone has skills in putting together gimbals and phantoms, I will pay you (beer or cash) to help me get it all working smoothly.

    Also, I have the Attitude SD goggles from fatshark and a tarot 2d gimbal. Any way to set up the head tracking to work as the tilt function? Cause that would be awesome. But I think it sounds like head tracking wont work with our stock controller?? Looks like most of the setups people do have me putting in a little switch on my controller.

    Hey guys, I'm also a Phantom pilot. I'm out in west Houston area near Katy FW and Beltway 8. Usually fly out at Bear Creek Park when I do. I'm also intested in getting into FPV, now I just fly by sight.

    I'm in northeast Houston (Atascocita-Humble).

    I'm still learning. Adding gimbal and FPV equipment onto one of two Phantoms that I have. Added the gimbal. Not directly to the NAZA controller yet. I believe I need to do that to do axis control.

    I have to find out how to connect the TX now as I have an older GoPro (1 or 2). No clue.

    We'll need to coordinate a get together one of these weekends!

    Good deal. I'm down. So I just added a tarot gimbal yesterday and man it is great. Works as advertised. No tilt control yet, as I don't know how to solder and all that fun stuff. But soon hopefully. You know anything about all that? I found a post either on here or youtube that told me what parts to get for the install. Now I just gotta get brave enough to try it.

    Have y'all tried any of the aftermarket props yet? I have tried two different versions of carbon fiber ones and I go straight back to the stock ones. They just fit better and feel better to me. But I would like to have some that produce more lift, so if you have found any that worked for you just pass on the link so I can buy me some. :cool:

    In the woodlands. Need to find a place to fly, mine is arriving on Monday. my parents have a place up near waco that is perfect for flying, but I won't be there for another 2 weeks, so I wouldn't mind trying to find a place free of interference to fly it a couple of times.

    Summerwood area for me. Been flying for about a month at a couple of the local school football fields.

    Waiting for the weather to clear up some and to start finding some more interesting subject matter.
