A buddy of mine loaned me some Fat Sharks, I hope the weather will allow me to use them this weekend. This FPV thing is new to me so I wan't to see what kind of learning curb it is before I buy my own, and I am working on a shoot with a filming crew and I wanted him (the director) to use them so he can fram the shot. So this weekend looks like it should be fun and different, as well. I hope the Quad does well I will post some footage later if all goes well.

Well I finished my build on the 650 and I think it will be a great machine. I am still getting it diled in. Here is a video of some hover testing. I turned the PI and I gains down after this video and it did tame it down a bit.

here is a video of me helping another pilot in our club. Our raidos wouldn't hook up together so we did it the old way.

Well I pulled the triger and ordered a X650 with the new kk2.1 board. I can't wait to get it and start building. I went with this frame because it will hold all video and FPV gear on board as well as gps. The frame folds for easy transport, and I think it looks cool as well. Here is a pic of what I want when I'm done.

I picked this plane up last summer at a fly-in and had a buddy of mine build it, as he was looking for a project. I flew it yesterday and it did great, just like it's on rails I have it set up fast so it flys like a patteren plane. since I had the "Ducks" plane I had to sticker it as a "Beavers" plane. I fly it on a 1500 3c witha a 2200kv and 8" prop.
