I love this. I have flown several of my foamies FPV and I think that this is great. Nice and simple.

This is my own design Easycam140

LIke the title says, this is my own design, called Easycam140, it's flown about 30 fpv flights, so it's very much tried and tested.

It flies with a 800mw HK system, with omni, and for control I am using a stock futaba 9cap on 72mhz with doubled up antenna and I am getting 3.5-4 miles solid with all omni antennas.

The osd is Remzibi with gps...

Very simple, cheap and you can count on it coming back for more...

I only had a small accident with it, but nothing serious, I went flying with a bit of drizzle and once up there it started pouring, so I got some water inside the wing, that made some of the sheer web of the wing sweel up and it's got a few spots of mold, but the wing is still solid and flying .

If I were to do it again , I'd use some WBP on the wood and spend some time doubling up covering on the endes for more water resistance.

Huge 180 cm wing with 34 cm chord... wing loading is 6 oz sq/ft.

Flight is really really slow, it can sustain height at only 15 km/h airspeed and a dribble of gas....

New to FPV

Hi Guys,

Did my 5th FPV flight last sunday with my Super Alula.



This is the recording of my 5th experience. I used a spy key cam for the recordings.
