Mudlark good thinking on te 5.8 I supper that kind of keeps distance down to a reasonable / legal value. I'm in for Fpv holidays boats cars planes tanks? All sounds good to me

RCM if and when I get my mirage going can I pop up to yourclub on the odd ocation as I will need a nice patch of grass to land on it's king of why I haven't finished it as I can't find any where ear me to fly from. I think it would be worth the trip to be able to take off and land on retracts. I'll do poo clearing for you if that gets me in lol

Like the vid pasty nice flying I need to get my act together andget my quad fixed after my first unsuccessful night flying attempt in the back garden last week inbroke an arm when I clipped the shed. I'll watch your vid again tonight and hopefully it will get me motivated to get in the man cave again ( and not drill my thumb this time)
It's getting there. I laid seed down a month or so ago and it's rise up quite well. You won't break your leg in the garden just the garage. I boarded the upstairs and it's full of junk. Needs a sort through. But don't they all....

this is Frank we are talking about. It seems to me that the camera was producing this problem . this camera has spent at least 1 hour at the bottom of a river. this was the first time it has been switched on after it's dunking

Other possibility. I think his camera is an NTSC one maybe the display you were using was not ready for these electronic adventures...

Cheap FPV setup UK?

Hi all! I was wondering if anyone could help me out, I am a complete newbie to FPV (minus sticking a keychain cam on the nose of my Bixler) and I'd like to give it a try.
Could anyone suggest a good (and preferably cheap) FPV setup for use in the UK?
I know that certain frequencies are illegal etc etc...

Thanks for any help,
Happy flying,
Al

Mudlark... no worries, I am away for a few days now anyhow :-D

SouthPawPaul... good to meet you :-D hope to see a lot of you, you'll be a great addition to our happy band flying in all our little spots.

Pasty... stunnned! amazing flying (given that I have done a fair bit of proximity I know how much skill you have to do what you have shown us

Owen... huge apologies dude - flights were booked different to what I was told, today has been manic as I am off in the morning, not Sunday as I thought!

Dalibab... very kool vid sir. Go to halfords and buy some Rainex. you will not find a better surfactant based water repellent. Clean your car windscreen, follow the directtions and never use your wiperas again - I kid you not it's that good. and the smallest pot will last for 30 years of FPV/ go pro use!!!!!


So I wonder how many FPV flyers there are in LA? is that where RCPowers are based? see you in a while gang.

:-D I so need this trip, and I was about to give up on Karma.... thankyou to those who shall remain nameless who have donated to make this happpen

Have fun while I'm away chaps, keep doing what you do... safely

Paul
