Good to see more Team Bondi guys at it.

Hmm, FVP combat Funjets at the point at Camperdown? - now that sounds like a challenge! I think I'll stay off 2.4 on the video TX, though!

Rest assured that you'll want something faster and more stable than an easy* before long, you can both fly pretty well already, so FPV is not going to be a big leap for you. Go for a funjet - lots of room, can be flown slow, deals with turbulence, easy to land, can be flown fast, good for obsticle course work, and, oh yeah, good for combat too!

Cheers

Hi All,

This is my first FPV video upload.
It was recorded using a usb capture device.
Not to impressed with the quality but better than nothing I suppose.
I'll have to have a bit more of a play with the software and see if i can improve it.


Radian FPV flight (9 min 27 sec)


Cheers Vince.

Hi team,
I managed a 90 minute slope/ thermal flight today. Got to 1000ft above launch twice.
Too much fun.
Cheers

I got brave and took the lens out of the Sony camera and put yours in and the colours still stayed correct when outside.

So that means all the lenses I have including yours are good but I still have the white trees.

Any ideas?




Anyone know how to fix the white trees on the cameras., ( Yeh - do not buy cheap rubbish)

they were a lot cheaper a couple of months ago: $439 inc. R6014HS Rx (I should have bought two! ):

Might be worth calling North Coast Hobbies and seeing if they still have that low price.
