Thats not TOO expensive. anyway, the Popwing seems pretty jumpy from the onboard keychain cam videos, abd that little vet will just be jumpier! You might as well get the Bixler 2 for high altitude, heavy payload, soaring, long distance, smooth FPV! Than save up for the ORANGE RX 3axis stabilizer! You would have some Team Blacksheep-quality FPV vids!
Ya a Bixler would be fun but for one its not fast enough
I'm used to flying FPV at about 70 MPH now LOL
Two, its constantly out if stock and near the holidays that'll get worse
Three, I need to use something with small batteries. I'm using an old computer PSU for 12 ish volts for my charger, and it gets pretty warm at 1.3A. Don't want to push it.
But I'll keep it in mind. And more mAH = parallel, more voltage = series
Not to mention that you can't go very far without an OSD onboard that shows which way is home. Max I'll probably go is somewhere around 1/2 to 2 miles at the most.
