I talked to Mike a week or two ago and he said he might come up to Woodstock sometime when the weather breaks. We will work something out for sure.

Flew thrus and fri.....plan to fly tomorrow. FPV is on hold at the moment though because my FPV RC tx crapped out....sending it in for repair tomorrow. The TX module board went out (DX7). Luckily I wasnt flying at the time.....just failed to bind or rebind before a flight. Wouldnt bind to any other plane either.

I already had the pan and tilt... I have a beta version of EE, but it will retail for about $80 when it ships...

you can check out the mobile video at the top of the thread to see some close ups of the ground station...

does your FPV set up, transmit on 2.4?...i understand it isnt good to run both the plane rc and FPV on 2.4 at same time ...causes interference big time ...

mine too...when I first stated looking I didnt think it would make a difference ,all those spektrums flying at SEFF all at once with no one shooting anyone else down.But after getting on the forums I kept hearing that was a bad idea ...so when I ordered my system from hobby wireless I made sure it was (is) a 900 .Havent gone with goggles yet ...just a flat screen momitor .

Very nice. You were certainly out. Didn't those kids see that you had the field?

Nice day up here on the north side too. Got a chance to meet Greg and fly the soccer fields in Woodstock. Lots of people flying today.

My FPV starter system just arrived, so after consulting with Greg on a couple of points, I'm going to start my build.
