We fly electrics at the Grant area. Some FPV stuff too but just around the area, no long distance.

Ruben;
I found some foam board that is clad in paper. It comes in 3/16" 4'x8' sheets costing around $12. This but shouldn't be too difficult to laminate 2 pieces giving a thickness of 3/8". I would think that would add to the rigidity. I don't know if you're still looking, but I'm keeping my eyes open for the pink/blue stuff.

Oh thank Bob,
I found the only store with pink foam board. HD off hwy5 and medow view. I got 6 sheets and they said they will not carry any more ever. They had 50 sheets left of each and the only store in the area with 1/2 and 3/4".
How good is the stuff u got? What's it look like?

"That's right, the 2011 Huckfest tour heads back over to the West Coast on Oct 13 thru Oct 16 to visit with our good buddies at the Delta Flying Club. These guys run an amazing field that hosted the 2010 CA Huckfest. The same place where ALL the West Coast pilots seriously tore it up! The Delta Flying Club runs a very spacious field with a runway that is seriously a treat to fly off of. If you are within a 6 hour drive, we better see you there!"

Ok guys I'm in a little pickle. I can not decide if I want the Fat Shark dominators or regular ones or get a big LED tv which Is about the same price as dominators.
Good thing about the big screen tv Is I can use it in my long haul truck.
This is all for FPV for those who don't know what I'm talking about.

Gent, Ruben anybody else please help lol

Jay,

Get the big LED TV. Hands down, it wins over the dominator, lol. It's awesome for FPV because it's HD (don't worry about it not as immersive as fatshark; immersion is overrated, lol). Besides, it is safer to fly with an LCD screen than with goggles. At the end of the day, you can watch some movies/ shows with it.

Thanks Gent, for your input on this.

Only other thing I worried is how well can you see the LCD when it's nice and sunny out side.

Do I have to put bigo box over the tv and sit in it lol that would be hilarious hahaha

Or huge black cloth over me and the LCD tv. It may look like a ghost standing from far away lol
oh well I guess I'll fit the Halloween theme in the mean time hahaha
