RMRC 1.3 GHz 200mw First Impressions + Quick Unboxing! (2 min 4 sec)

Episode 37 of the FPV PROJECT!

This stuff is great! I've tested the vTX all the way down to below 10v and it operates fine. No interference seen from my 2.4 GHz RX onboard the PopWing yet, because I've got the vTX far out on the wing and the torriod ring on the plug.


Music originally composed by my brother, Ben. Track is called "Solar Symphony" - thanks bro!

Check out this new video too from my channel, uploaded after the one above.

Episode 36: Gorgeous, NEW Flying Spot, FPV Friendly! + Lots of PopWing Fun with Dad (7 min 40 sec)

Episode 36 of the FPV PROJECT!

STAY TUNED FOR 1.3 GHz FPV stuff! Coming VERY soon! SUBSCRIBE!!!!!

New place to take off/land is totally rad! Love the view and the fact that it'll get my patch antenna up high. Direct LOS to those little hills in the background. Google Earth is showing them about a little over 3 miles away. Maybe way in the future someday I'll fly out to them! Anyways, I'm totally impressed by what I found and it looks like it's going to be a winner. However, landing is pretty interesting

Narrated FPV Flight From Moving Car + Near Disaster! (8 min 25 sec)
