We still go but not to the big parks because people always turn up and have a cry.

Check page 13 of this PDF...

Quote:
"A person must not, without the Council’s permission, use a park or reserve for
the purpose of:
(g) Operating a model aircraft propelled by a motor"
Maximum penalty – 20 penalty units


Theres a "gliding" club here... RAMS, problem is you can only fly on Sunday's, Wednesday's & Monday's between 8am & 11:59am... well I work 2 of those days and the weather might be crappy on Sunday, the nice huge park is free 90% of the time but nooooooo...

So we will just go down to the esplanade at raby bay and FPV from there, every time we go at least 1 person will stop to have a look and they really love it... not 1, NOT 1!! complaint...

So we need a spot where there is nobody is sight to complain

BTW - One penalty unit equals $110

20 = $2200

I want to make a pulsejet with an autopilot and have it loiter over the mayors house every couple of days at midnight...
Ive thought this through a fair bit

LOL !!!!

OK so we need a site. I can't think of anywhere suitable off hand either. Although the area you suggest would suit me just fine. All the places I fly are either infested with tree's or it's some farmers paddock I'm not supposed to be flying over. The cows, you'll scare the cows!
I'm sure we'll find somewhere. Flying conditions have been great down around these parts most days the wind doesn't really pick up till around midday if your away from the coast.

geee... all those equipments on lito fox?
looks kinda heavy.
my friend is sending me a fox, and I have 1.3g 300mw tx with 12v camera. the vid equipment is approx 200g with 500mah battery. wonder if its even gonna take off.

by the way, anyone know the range of 1.3g 300mw tx & stock receiver antenna?. I have a 8dbi patch but it blocks 2.4g signal when i stood behind it.

hey if anyone is gonna do FPV in melb metro parks, plz PM me i really wanna have a look and be a camera man :>

Your 300mw system should be fine for 1.5 km at least, what do you mean it blocks your 2.4?? Have you got a picture? hehe

"Show us ur video" yip i'll be monitoring the tread
300mw for 1.5km with Stock Whip antenna sounds good enough for me. as My DX7 + AR7000 wouldn't do that far anyways..

Yeah when I stand behind the patch antenna, my 2.4gig radio link breaks.
I recorded my first FPV bench test video with JXD 990, quality sux I could barely see the image with the amount of reflection.

Mmm that sounds weird hey, your 2.4 rc link and 1.3 vid link should be rock solid out to at least 500 meters...

How close is the 2.4rx to the 1.3tx?

The fact that your standing behind your patch shouldnt matter... unless its like a 4 meter squared patch antenna and your standing behind it

Vid is up there now
