This series of lessons uses the free FPV Freerider simulator to teach a complete beginner how to fly an FPV multirotor in acro (no autoleveling) mode. You can learn to fly a quadcopter at home in front of your computer for almost no money. You can learn to fly without any fear of crashing and breaking an expensive toy. And yes, the things you learn here WILL translate over to real life.
This playlist is the continuation of my "how to fly a racing drone" series. We leave the simulator behind and enter the real world. The lessons are a little less structured, since at this point, the pilot should have enough confidence to feel out moves for him or her-self.
Stick overlays show you exactly what my thumbs are doing while the copter is flying. People find these to be VERY educational and they are some of my most popular videos. So here they all are in one place!
