Stryker video...get the popcorn !

Here it is, kind of trying to find out how the flying envelope feels in FPV. Very stable and very fast on the controls although I had 25 % expo. Flies like I tought it would. Couldn't bring it as low as I wanted and the "feel" of speed is a little deceiving, but it was so windy that when headwind it was feeling slow.

There is no vibration on the plane but the wind made it wobble a bit in flight. This is particularly seen with the flycam but a lot less with the FPV cam. The last maneuver made me feel a bit dizzy for a second, can't wait to try more of that... Hope you like it, cause there will be many more

Stryker first FPV flights (4 min 54 sec)

Thanks ! The wind was quite heavy and gusty ! That is what makes the Stryker "woble", but it is a very good flyer in the wind. This airframe has a large envelope, can glide or race, can land like a heli if you pull it almost full up and keep air going under the wings. Its a keeper !

BTW, keep the videos coming. Even if you are just making tests and getting familiar with the field, it is fun to watch. The haier is fine, you can frame it with your canon so we don't see the edges of the Haier if you want, but the picture was fine. It is fun to see a new field !

Nice job Carguy, way to ride out the "tripod incident". 8^)

Has to be way different than the glider.

The weather here never really turned as good as it was supposed to but I did run down to the field and put a flight on my foamy 109 with the 2.4G gear on it. RC link felt rock solid, this is a fairly small plane so hard to get it very far away and still be able to see it. I'm really thinking I need to put some FPV gear on it and hot rod it around! In the spirit of video watching, I threw the keychain camera on it, so some turnin' and burnin' low flyin" video is on the way!

Thanks ! I was surprised to have picture but glad the connector on the goggles hold up.

I think I'm gonna get a keychain 720p for recording instead of the gopro: Lighter AND cheaper... on the video tread one guy installed another lens on it, good results for a 40 $ cam.

I've been thinking the same thing. I'd really like to have something that takes nice video before I head up north.
