Having some fun with the HPI Blitz Flux on 3S. Far too much power for such little traction on the sandy roads... and wet driveway.

Thanks to Ben, my brother, for filming the speed runs video. Also check out his photography page.

Hey Everybody -

My brother opened up a Facebook page to promote his photography skills. He is my favorite videographer for my YouTube videos (and does much better than my dad, but don't tell him!). He specifically likes to do anything with nature and outside and has come out with some absolutely incredible photos over the years. I encourage you all to give him a like and support him in his endeavors. Along with photography this guy's in the hardest classes in school, honor roll, big achiever. He got his first DSLR about a month ago and is working with that. His photos are awesome and he's looking into making it a career some day.

You may also know him on Instagram as seasoncolors.

Hey everybody -

So my second formal project called THE FPV PROJECT on YouTube is finally ending at 100 videos, just like the RC FOAM SHOW (RCFS) did. My next "project" is yet to be decided, these two were simply playlists that I created as I went to keep everything together for a single idea, project, or endeavor (if not multiple ones too!) I had a blast making the episodes of THE FPV PROJECT and hope to continue having fun flying, building, and uploading videos.

THE FPV PROJECT included everything from two FPV PopWings (one laminated one), a CrashTestHobby Titan and Pelican, to a DJI F330 quadcopter, and hundreds of dollars of FPV equipment in between, some aerial photography, camera testing, opinions, etc etc etc.

The last episode that completed this project was uploading just recently about the 9X with FrSKY, some binding tips. A lot of people use this setup for FPV so I figured it was relevant.

Episode 100: Turnigy 9X FrSKY Binding Info, Important Details (3 min 23 sec)

2013 was a fun year for sure, and I was busy. Along with doing between 30-50 (?) FPV setups for customers here on RCG, I also built quite a few planes and helis..

-Crash Test Hobby Pelican (FPV!)
-3DHS 41'' Edge Rebuilt
-HobbyKing RadJet
-Binary 900 DLG (second one)
-Blade 300X and Tarot ZYX-S (then 3GX)
-NitroPlanes PopWing (FPV v2.0!)
-HobbyKing Wicked Wing 48'' EPP Slope Soarer KIT
-HobbyKing Versus DLG KIT
-Blade nCPX Brushless BNF
-DJI F330 Quadcopter KIT
-Crash Test Hobby Titan
-Multiplex FunJet Ultra (first 100 MPH experience!)

Biggest accomplishments:

EXCEEDED 100 MPH with the FJ Ultra!
CAUGHT FIRST THERMAL with the Versus!
LEARNED TO SLOPE SOAR with the Wicked Wing

...and started building FPV setups too!

I also went from a Futaba 8FG, 14SG, then DX7s, and then JR DMSS XG6.

I recently build a setup for a HERO3 camera on a DJI Phantom. I know a lot of people with the Phantom are looking to get into FPV so I made a video to explain how simple this setup is!

NOTE: YOU MUST REMOVE THE RED WIRE FROM THE HERO3 CABLE OR YOU WILL RUIN YOUR GOPRO

You can get all of this equipment from ReadyMadeRC and SierraRC.

My first thermal with the Versus from HK (TopSky 1.0 clone). 3 minute flight in mostly calm weather with a little bit of a breeze from time to time.

Enjoy!

I've been on YouTube for about a year and a half now - and at almost 450 videos so far, you can definitely say I've been busy. I made a shorter compilation to use as a channel trailer for my YouTube channel known as RCDJO, or DJO Productions. It includes quite a bit of FPV and AP, as well as some jet footage, 3D, slope soaring and more. I think it came out good!

I'm saving up to buy a good DSLR camera to get some really nice shots later on (from the air I'm hoping as well) and start getting more into aerial videography/photography work.

Enjoy, and please subscribe! My goal is to hit 500 subscribers by the end of this year.

One of the fields that I fly at from above, and looking towards downtown. These snapshots were taken my my CrashTestHobby Titan with a Mini F9 (Replay XD Knockoff) in 720p, 60fps. They came out really good IMO!

There's a pond in the woods on the left



See the pond, and part of downtown as well!
