FPV Flights

Thought I should put my FPV flights here.

In order by date, oldest to newest...




GWS Slow Stick FPV Flight July 8 2008 (7 min 2 sec)








GWS SLOW STICK FPV ACREAGE FLIGHT (6 min 4 sec)








Slow Stick FPV in the park April 10 09 (6 min 41 sec)








SLOW STICK FPV IN A BIT TOO MUCH WIND (4 min 49 sec)



Newest vid...

Slow Stick FPV Over 1000 ft. altitude, April 19 09 (4 min 2 sec)


And a couple of pics of the latest FPV Slow Stick.

Built with parts from Radical RC and a 1000mm carbon stick/fuse plus the Stock GWS tail extension. 1200mm overall length.


3" wing risers are from Radical RC, as are all the other wood/balsa parts.

Very stable!

Thanks!

Yeah, the FPV SS is pretty heavy, 42 oz.

I'm having trouble figuring out some landing gear that will be light weight, but still strong enough for the weight of the plane.

Have a couple of ideas that I'm gonna work on, we'll see how it goes.

If it works out, I'll show it here.
