Hello

here are pictures of my third FPV plane. I started flying fpv last summer with a easystar. As I was whishing to get something more "steady" than an easystar for this year, I built a flying wing for fpv on mid april. The result did not give me entire satisfaction: too fast and most of all…to noisy (the propeller was turning in the middle of the wing through a hole…the result was a very piercing noise
Then, I decided to build a new plane, more reliable than the FW, with more accurate response than an eaystar and most of all…noiseless. My choice was a twin engined plane. From a 3 view drawing (TA 154, the German "Moskito"), I CNC cut the fuse, wing (selig 3021 airfoil), stab and fin. Only the engine "cradles" were not the TA154's. They are located on the top of the wing, to give the 9X4.7 props being clear from the ground. I use two 950Kv pro tronik brushless. The wingspan is 1200mm and the weight fully loaded is 1300grs. A sony bloggie HD cam is shipped on board, on a cradle located on the top of the canopy (not on the pictures). First aerial videos today and the result is good. To keep the plane steady on the roll axis, a HK401 Gyro has been set on board: that helps a lot in windy conditions and also when I wear the video googles after the plane has been launched.

here are the pictures











videos very soon (time to learn how to edit videos)

Thinking of buying this camera. What lens should I get 3.6 or 6mm?

NOT 6mm. I doubt that's even flyable. Imagine driving while looking through a paper towel roll...

3.6mm maximum, dont go for 6mm, its way too small FOV

also, its worth (IMHO) buying something a little better like a 550tvl. i've got a 650 tvl sony i bought off ebay for $60 and it rocks! i'll never go back to 420tvl now...

cheers

2.8mm is great at the begining as it gives you wide field of view and makes you think you're further out than you really are. 3.6mm is pretty close to your normal depth perception.

So what exactly does this lens measurement actually stand for? I assumed the bigger the number the bigger the field of view - which is obviously incorrect.
