The Evolution of a FPV EasyStar
My EZ* has evolved a lot in a year and a half...
Here's how I got started flying RC...I couldn't fly a plane coming towards me to save my life...The light bulb did not turn on until I started to fly FPV. The "Geek Box" allowed me to see things from the airplane, which helped me figure out the airplanes attitude...I still think it's an awesome set-up to learn how to fly and learn how to fly FPV.
RTF EZ, Video Pod, NiMH Batteries...
Here's what it looks like with standard wings, stock motor, LiPos, no gyros. I flew my bird like this for a year...It was a hoot. I got to fly it Day and Night.
Here it is whith EG wings, ARC 28-37-3, LiPos and gyros. I wanted it to be able to carry more batteries for endurance/range and be more stable, so that I can fly in stronger winds making more fly-days available...7 kts of wind here...
Remote Antenna & VTx. It gets cold here. With this set-up, I can fly from the comfort of my car...
Set-up details below:
