Looks good! I've just started FPV (with a plane, though) and yeah it really isn't as hard as you think it will be What equipment were you using in this flight?

EDIT: Whoops found it in the video's description:

FPV Gear:
ImmersionRC 600 mw 5.8 Ghz Tx, with bluebeam whip antennas
600TVL SONY SUPER HAD CCD D-WDR
I'm now using 5.8 GHz after switching from 2.4 GHz... in fact I'm using a 600mw 5.8 GHz ImmersionRC vTX too! It's awesome

Hey good job,man!

Wow, your quad is very very similar to how mine is specd, except mine runs on NazaGPS FC. Same motors, props, frame, camera. It's a quality combo.

I have copied your quad specs for the benefit of this thread, if you don't mind.

Sounds great! And I almost forgot to post my first flights
I think quads are much harder to learn to fly on... maybe someday I'll try one but for now, EPP stuff will work great

Cool Video, maybe I need to add music to mine..

I've been thinking about getting a plane to FPV with too.

Here's my second FPV flight, the quad was misbehaving some, this time I landed the quad FPV too. Gotta work on my landings.

Here's my first crash... I'm not really sure what happened but all that broke was a prop, the HT-FPV frame is solid.
