I also taught my dad how to launch the PopWing... so now I don't have to worry about launching it myself with the goggles on and that long 72 MHz antenna in the way! Thanks Dad!

Much better performance with the dipole antenna (instead of the whip) on the vRX. Still using the 10mw vTX though! Another video is uploading... ENJOY!

2.4GHz FPV CamTXRX Range Testing - Through Trees, Houses, etc. (3 min 37 sec)


Episode 97 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

MUCH better range than my first test when I had the vRX way too close to the house and in like a corner where the signal couldn't go far much... if that makes any sense, LOL

Once these are up in the air I'll get much better range too.

The MOST GENEROUS R/C DONATION IN HISTORY (19 min 33 sec)


Episode 96 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

I sound really blah, but seriously I was crazy excited! Just a bit tired after the school day... Stay tuned for more! Range test on 500mw 2.4 GHz got a whopping 100 feet, so it looks like I won't be flying very far. Hmm... maybe it was just the environment, I'm not sure. Hopefully it performs better with a range test at the high school or something...?
