Enjoying hobby flight is a changing beast these days and drones typically add a new layer to it all. The machines of old took to the sky without a camera, or they hauled a GoPro to capture footage to watch later.

Live streaming video from the sky is a great way to experience drone flight. Putting that video in front of your eyes can be done in a number of ways, today we’ll look at the three most popular as we discuss the pros and cons of each.
