Just tried out the rpv for the first time today and it was awsome also upgraded the motor and esc aswell and that made a huge differance. 2200kv motor with a 60amp esc. Took me ages to figure out how to program the esc but once you work out the beeps for each parameter its easy but takes a while.

It was a little overwhelming at first because once you slap on those goggles every thing is way different. I lost track of home position a few times but after a while you start getting the hang of it. Its great fun and the view up there while flying is f@%kn awsome, loads of fun I went out and flew to around about 1.5k away and still a clear picture. Ive ordered a new camera from security camera2000, "600tvl sony super HAD II" one of the best on the market and its only $43 free delivery heaps cheaper than hobbyking and ready made r/c. Also ordering on monday the eagle tree OSD pro and the FINWING PENGUIN. Check it out, I strongly recommend getting into FPV its an awsome feeling and tonnes of fun.

Hi rudeboy

Just a few pics of the Finwing Penguin and a size comparison next to the bixler.
Check out the amount of space to mount your gear in the penguin, also I don't have a ground station yet with a DVR so I can't get any vids at the moment but coming soon.

I went out for a fly on monday morning and everyone was there which is unusual because hardly anyone goes down there anymore because of those F@%KN cricketers always taking over. Got my cessna stuck in the tree and Eddie and Graeme came over to give me a hand.

Eddie's helping and Graeme's taking the photo's and laughing.
