Without a UHF that is about the limit so now it's formation flying. You can follow me over the hedge!

Ok guys i need your opinion...Not sure if you guys know of this camera but its giving gopro a run for its money and some say its better than the gopro3 black edition. Its the Drift HD Ghost. It runs for 400.00 for this version but there is also a 200.00 version as well. I have posted a link so you can watch a video of the Drift hd ghost and give me your opinion. The video will already be displayed so just hit the play button. One of the great features is that the case is already water proof up to 9ft of water. It also has a gorilla 2" thick lcd screen which is scratch proof.

Now watch the gopro3 black edition:

The main reason I'd stick with the GoPro is all the stuff for it, mounts....etc. If you really have to have the best then you can get the G3 black but otherwise any of them are good for video. The original hero is about 100 bucks now.

Yeah I have been following that thread. Really cool design for a basic quad but not enough room for all the FPV stuff.

The odd screen issue I have been having with my radio seems to be the screen going bad and needs replaced. Looks like I'll be without a radio after the holidays for a few weeks. This really sucks.

I'll most likely send it off for repair after the Thanksgiving weekend. I can still come out with Nick's planes.

Anyone know who these guys are?

I'm worried stuff like this will prevent the developement of senceable laws for the commerical use of UAV's.

These are the people who give FPV a bad name. They are pretty much spying on these hunters and private land. I can definently see this being a hinderance and with me trying to make a business out of sUAV's it pisses me off.
