I'm approaching the drone world and I'm studying the basics before buying the first one or attending a course.
I would use them for personal pleasure, not for work nor for racing or group flying. But I'd love the FPV way to fly them. Most of the drones on the market have a smartphone holder on the remote so you can see the video stream in real-time when flying.
I'm also aware that you can put the smartphone inside a "headset" (like the ones for VR). Hence, if I'm not wrong almost any drone can be used with an "FPV" approach.
What I'm asking here is if my assumption is correct, or perhaps there are drones specifically built to be flown in FPV. Again, I'm not interested in racing or acrobatic features.
I'm thinking for example about the latency of the video streaming: if I fly keeping an eye on the drone I can live with some latency, but if I rely on the camera only I guess the latency should be as low as possible.
Bottom line: can I pick up any drone out there or should I pay attention to some specific features?
After the very useful information I received now I better understand the scenario, so I have to update my question - hoping to not going off-topic.
My final use of the drone is for surveillance on my farmland and helping with farm works. I thought FPV was the best choice because I would "feel" flying above, but now I'm not sure if I was right.
So any hints about this application (specifically about the FPV topic) are gladly appreciated.
