Question
SPV? Second person with onboard camera for safety/spotting advice?

Maybe well suited for turbine pilots who are constantly upgrading to the highest-end, highest safety equipment. They'd still have the regular r/c pilot, the spotter, how about a 3rd guy for the more complex jobs (several thousand, if not over 10k invested) to look around from the perspective of the jet to provide audible advice to the pilot? I believe that jets are a bit too extreme for FPV, and defeat the purpose of FPV aside from a 12 year olds perspective of thinking "that'd be really cool! More faster and more expensive!" I think that'd be nice to have in a model, or at least a good thing to try and see if it can help.

Has there been any attempt at this?

Nice try at an excuse to have someone take you for a ride as the one who gets to watch in the glasses

do you think the ability for 2 to get lost may be greater than sum of the parts??
