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...?
Update: cam is not working or giving out any video signal. More testing to come, but I will most likely have to send it in for maintenance or a replacement, it simply doesn't work at all. Stay tuned for more of my FPV setup and other awesomeness! And SUBSCRIBE!
NOTICE: THERE IS SOME DEBATE over whether this is license-free or not. I was told that it was, but who knows it probably isn't LOL... so I can't be held responsible for anybody if this does turn out to be needing a license, or if it is illegal in other countries.
First stage of my FPV setup! Need some more stuff that's coming in the mail, as well as actually getting a plane for FPV! LOL... stay tuned!
So... thanks to anixs I got a free 600TVL FPV camera right here on RCG! That helps me out a lot in getting an FPV setup together, and I finally put my foot down and said that this year I'm GOING FOR IT. Was hoping to do it last year... but with no R/C flying experience, BAD idea... That was also the time when I had done a report for my school's Science Fair on FPV and UAVs that actually got published on Team Blacksheep's homepage!
I'm going to fly a little FPV with some license free equipment first just to see if I like it and if I want to go long range. I have a feeling that I really won't want to go too far, because I really don't know much about what's more than 2-3 miles away from a given point around here, and there's no big landmarks like huge lakes or mountains to go by... plus without an OSD or RTH system, flying in places that my brain hasn't charted yet isn't a good idea in my opinion.
Personally I think that it's very nice quality but flies OK... in my opinion. I'm not a hater of 3DHS but I've only flown foam and this just doesn't feel right, I'm just not really happy that I spent so, so, so much money on this.
Hit your face on the like button, and comment if you can hear the kid that was talking to me and watching me fly the plane. He said something about the Red Baron...? Not sure.
