Anyone Into FPV?

Hi guys my name is Simon

Has anyone done any fpv on ther trikes/gondolas yet?

Ive just got my pantilt servo setup and video link and will be installing the works on my paraplane soon.

In the meantime here is a quick static camera position of the flight:

FPV on a microlite? I'd assume the weight shifting technique of controling a microlite would make for some nauseating swaying in the live feed and the resulting footage. Are you planning on stabilising your FPV setup in any way?

thanks
ive been testing my mates one for him cus hes too nervous to have a go yet,
seems a more natural way of flying to me-
no reversing when coming towards you and you can see exactly how far objects are from you,
a good contrast camera is a must so you can see clearly where trees etc are and not just shadows!

would probably only fly within the field if i put it in my microlight but weve been about a mile with his plane with no problems
