CurryKitten

CurryKitten is making videos about RC flying things (mainly) and FPV via their YouTube channel which (for reasons of the names of their cats amongst other things) is called CurryKitten. They started getting into the RC hobby around 2012, and back then things were very much less “off-the-shelf” and much more “make-it-yourself”. Their various experiments in flying got them off the ground to view things in glorious FPV – but they had way more than their fair share of crashing into the ground… with vengeance. As they started branching out and flying more models and trying different things, they were often frustrated at the lack of proper manuals, or instructions about how components should be setup. Their day job was very much about problem solving, so they generally figured things out for themselves with a bit of trial and error and experimentation. They started making videos about how they set things up, and they seemed to help people out who were stuck in the same situation. The progression happily enough, in the last 6 years or so, the technology has moved on and there’s some wonderful off-the-shelf components and ready-to-fly models available now – but it doesn’t make things simple for everyone. They’ve met up with lots of new pilots and they’ve noticed many of them struggle with certain aspects of first-time flying – so they started making tutorials to help address this. Similarly, not all RTF models are created equally, and new guys can really get disheartened when they brand new model doesn’t work quite how it’s expected to. So, aside from reviewing new models, they’ve spent time trying to hunt down the problems and show how they can be fixed. In short, they enjoy making video content so much, they want to do this full time. It gives them the buzz of problem solving that their previous software engineering job wasn’t doing, and fills a creative hole that they had. Of course, giving up their day job does give them more time to create content, but it doesn’t pay for all the expenses in doing so they generate some income via affiliate advertising when they create reviews (at least in the case of Gearbest and Banggood). Hey, they can’t complain, they love playing with new toys as much as the next guy, but what they would like to do is spend less time on pure reviews and more time on some how-to’s, tutorial, build and similar project videos.
