    Hi everyone - new to this forum and looking for some advice. My son is 7 years old and loves speed. He's a quadriplegic with cerebral palsy so things can be difficult to get him that need for speed. He likes watching FPV videos of things like Red Bull air racing and down hill mountain biking and has expressed interest in drones. He doesn't have the coordination to fly one on his own so I'd be flying for him, but I was hoping to get one that he could wear a set of goggles and have the effect of flying in the first person view.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on a couple things:
    1. A good entry level drone/airplane that would work with goggles
    2. Suggestions on light weight goggles that will fit a kids face.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer or other sites/threads to look for ideas.

    I wish I could suggest anything specific, but there are a number of beginner drones that are under $100. Many have wifi connections with FPV capability. Some have a VR mode that can be viewed in a google headset.

    This is only one suggestion - https://www.halfchrome.com/attop-xt-1/
