Hey Dacono Air,
Is there a good place to get a list of recommended fpv equipment?

That is so cool! I can't wait to get my stuff. I'm starting with the basics to figure out what I really need.

My brother (JasonFriedman) and I both fly FPV. We have a short range sky-surfer set up from Skipmillermodels (it was our first plane). Yesterday we flew with some paragliders at foothills park in boulder, but got out of range when he went too steep down the mountain. Anybody fly in the boulder-denver-golden-lyons area?
Once we fix the plane up I am dying to fly up at Hall ranch with all the steep hills and redrock

Converted super cub

I'm starting to get a taste for this Fpv. Yesterday I flew my super cub, not through a monitor but just to test the equipment. With the added weight I was worried, but it flew great, unbelievable. I'm in the midst of installing ailerons and an air scoop and moving the camera below the fuselage. Hopefully I'll be done tomorrow morning and I'll be flying tomorrow evening. Anyone know where to get lights? I like the video of the night flying. Cool!

Yea we were surprised with our sky surfer too. With a larger prop,FPV gear, and a large battery (2000 mAH), it still can maintain altitude at half throttle. It performs better than stock, which makes FPV very fun even at Foothills park.
