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.

The camera that I got for free is:

So, here's what I ordered!

3DHS 41'' Edge Maiden Flights: Fast, Slow, High, Low, Tricks and Awesomeness! (5 min 27 sec)


Episode 87 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

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.

See him at about 2:18 on takeoff.

RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND

RCFS#76: Schwing - New Prop and Battery in LOTS of WIND (2 min 6 sec)


Episode 76 of the RC Foam Show (RCFS)

The Schwing has a new propeller (8x4 sport instead of 8x3.8 slow-fly) and a new battery generously donated to the RCFS by baddb1 on RC Groups, who also gave me the motor and ESC for the Schwing. So the Schwing is really half his, LOL!

Flies great but the wind certainly was messing things up. No crashes on this flight though!
