Countless of times I have considered getting a 5 inch, but I just can't seem to pull the trigger. I have a 3 inch but in reality I don't fly it as much because of the hassle. Can't safely fly it in the park next to my house, more stressful to fly, higher crash costs, bigger lipo's etc. Still balancing on the edge of pulling the trigger though. Those beautiful gopro video's got me into FPV in the first place. The forest crash session, the parking garages, you know. Still a dream, over 2 years now.
So many good FPV pilots on Youtube though, really need something special to stand out nowadays. Even with the most insane flying it's not going to cut it, we've seen pretty much all possible tricks. If I would go 5 inch and upload videos I'll be 'just another pilot'.
I'm liking the micro riot idea! I've been dreaming about getting serious with my micro video's, but in reality I think the audience is too small, it's too underground to be 'profitable'. And flying, building, repairing, filming and editing video's daily takes SO much time, no way I could combine that with my full time job. I struggle to edit a few video's a week, working all day, charge batteries, eat, quick session, spend rest of the evening watching DVR footage, looking for music, editing. Maybe, if I do what Casey says: do what you can't: Quit my job, get some professional camera gear, open up/get over my awkwardness talking to the camera, maybe I can do it. But it's such a risk and it wouldn't be smart.
