Ho-jazz has a normal FPV camera (security type)
But this footage was shot from his brand new GoPro Hero HD on 1080 PI

Yes- 2 cameras.

Thats correct. That video footage was from the Hero cam. The primary vision is through a 12v cam that gives much less resolution. I wish it looked like that through the goggles!!

Yup...We fly there a good bit as it is the only place around here with open space. Let me know when you go by there. We usually go up there on the weekend and have a few guys show up. Or BETTER yet. Make it down to the Patch sometime...

Took my GeoBat there today. It is a great place to get a quick flight in.

You can get a setup for a couple hundred that will get you flying. The (my)problem is once you get going, you need this...and that...and to go further.

Nice work baca!!

Thanks guys.
Yea the whole FPV thing can get spendy, I buy one part at a time every two weeks. I'm building this GB for FPV eventually but for now I'm going to set it up for night flying.
I'm going to hit it hard this weekend, hopefully I can get some stick time in next week.
