So today was my first FPV experience and boy what a treat!!

Having tested out everything as much as possible at ground level I borrowed my brother to be spotter and we set off for the field.

For the first flight I had him watch the tv while I flew and apart from a certain point in the circuit where the image would go bad he said the image was solid.

So I swapped over and had the tv while he spotted line of sight.
I did a few circuits after launch before looking at the tv!
Firstly it was very scary knowing your plane is up there but not actually looking directly at it!!
After tho I settled into doing circles around us, only one small fraction of the sky would have bad tv image and I need to experiment to find out why only in that area.

I regained line of sight and landed great.
Very cool and can't wait to try again on a calmer day.
