WOW. It's hard to tell from the video, but it was literally going directly up. Then my brother had to start zooming in it was so high. Talk about one hell of a thermal. On maiden flight too! Enjoy!

Remake of an older video, with some new thoughts and ideas.
Loving the external clip-on mic, and my Canon SL1's settings now all set up right.

When a custom flying wing is off balance (back heavy) and flown in ridiculous winds. Tried it off the slope too - would have been fine if the CG was right, LOL

Quite a comical video...

A few common misunderstandings about FPV technology. If something doesn't sound quite right, keep watching, I probably explain it better further on. There are many things in this video that depend. FPV setups always depend so even the misunderstandings depend.

I've been making YouTube videos since the start of 2012. I'm ALWAYS working on something new in R/C - even if what I'm working on isn't your niche in the hobby, in the future there's always a chance I'll be doing something you'd like to follow. THE FPV PROJECT and THE FPV PROJECT II are both huge successes and the second is not over yet. I'd encourage everybody to subscribe, I'm always up to something... next is getting my DSLR in the air with my recent hex. After that, who knows?

FPV flying, multirotors, lots of R/C tech, I've done jets, 3D planes, foamies, flying wings, custom builds for FPV, even DLG and some gliding, slope soaring.. etc etc etc... even a few trucks, helis, LOL basically everything
