Hi Quacker,

I enjoyed the video you shot from your Tigermoth. Very nice and very well edited.

Here is a link to the outfit I bought the head tracking goggles from, and here are a couple of links that inspired me to get them:

Cool - Easystar set up for FPV / Video Groundstation (rob10000)

Cool - Do you know how people will fly r/c planes in the future? (VRflier)

I have not flown them yet. I've got everything hooked up and tried it indoors but I was reluctant to maiden the equipment in Vermont, and I haven't had a chance to try it since I got home. I showed it at our club meeting last night and got a lot of ooh's and aah's and a lot of people knew what it was all about. I am the only video freak in a rather active club, so I was surprised by that.

In case you haven't seen it already, here is a link to a thread I started on tilt and pan setups. These can be used without the head tracking but then you have to take your hands off the controls and think about what you are doing.

I hope this answers your questions, and I look forward to seeing what you do with this stuff.
