Blade Inductrix 200 FPV
The fast and furious world of FPV racing may seem a little daunting to the uninitiated. Even if you are super confident flying line-of-sight, as soon as you put on those goggles, all the rules change.
If you want to dip your toes in and see what it's like, check out the Inductrix 200 just released by Blade. It brings the adrenaline levels down a few notches, and adds some safety features like prop guards so you can experience FPV without needing advanced piloting skills.
You can even fly it indoors safely.
It's designed to be beginner friendly, so you won't win any races, and the video signal won't let you go too far away outdoors, it's designed that way. It will, however, let you get familiar with flying FPV in a more controlled and safe manner.
Our friends at Modelflight sent us one of these, so we got a chance to take it for a spin around the office and the park.
After flying only a little FPV myself and still a bit nervous, being able to fly around the office FPV without threat of doing serious injury was a lot of fun... and quite annoying to co-workers as I buzzed past them and maybe hit a couple. But hey, I had to test the thing.
