Fpv thread

first thing first FPV flying is not allowed at this field. Some people were asking me about some my setups a few months ago when I brought out my FPV rc rock crawler. So I am going to Show you all my FPV Toys and source them out for everyone to get a better understanding of how to make their setups.

First things First I am a cheap ass so most my stuff will be real budget build kinda stuff.

first FPV toy, this is the umx fpv vapor. Last summer they had the fpv set with a fatshark teleporter v3 for 99$ and bnf vapors for 49$. So I bough 1 fpv set and 2 bnf vapors. I gave the other 2 vapors away and I took the cameras off the them versions for other toys and kept one stock except for a few added spars on the surfaces.

this Version is what I started with.

Second little fpv toy I made was a 1sq v-cam quadcopter from heli max, it had a camera on it that wasn't fpv so I pulled it off and to my surprise the molex connector from the old camera and the specktrum fpv camera were just 2 and 4 pin version of each other with the power in the same spot. So it was plug and play. Worked out really easy. Great FPV for in the house flying....

4th Toy:

250 racer I started with this 250 racer setup. comes with everything except a receiver.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZMR250-250-F...0AAOSwx-9WzVqf

90$

then I got this camera and transmitter.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Quanum-ELITE...kAAOSwoJZXShch

it wasn't exactly this one but it is the closest one on ebay to it right now.

50$

and these antenna's apparently they make a big difference. these added about 70% distance to my micro fpv toys.

Today I purchased these new goggles because I have come to find out my fatshark goggles kinda suck. These are getting great reviews. Apparently it is the kit versions just prebuilt so we'll see. I read one place that a guy said they are like Imax screens compared to his fatsharks, Since my fatsharks are one of the worst version I think it is worth the try. I got them and a battery shipped for 82$. They should arrive some time this week.

I got the new goggles quanum cyclops, and they are worlds better than the fatsharks.

To replace my fatsharks i purchase the quanum v2 pros d.i.y. they were cheap so we'll see how those go next.

I also got a tvl800 for a little better camera...

So i found out the colors on a cmos camera are designed for night time. And a ccd camera is for day time...

I am starting to experiment with different cameras and lenses.

I have 2 700tvlccd and 1 800tvlcmos. And a few different lense combinations..

If anyone wants to try out some fpv stuff let me know. I have some goggles and camera you can use. All set up for deans connections. Dual diversity goggles....nice stuff. I will be selling the setup eventually. Had fun with it....hobby just went other directions for me. I have a monitor too if you don't like the goggle solution.

Hey guys, I'm a local mini quad guy who's into FPV. I'm also considering setting up a wing for FPV too. Where do you guys tend to fly FPV?

Pretty frequently on Sunday mornings I fly at Mountain Vista Park at Ray Rd and the 10 freeway.
