Roger, you're right that it looks like Smith Mountain at 0:32 ... However, I videoed this in Botetourt County, near where I live, about one hour north of Smith Mountain. The nearby mountain in this video is Tinker Mountain.

If you want to meet me at my place sometime, I'll show you where I fly... it's very nice.

Thanks for your kind words,
Kevin

FPV = First Person View... it's a new way to fly RC airplanes, using a wireless video camera in the plane, and flying based upon the view seen from the airplane... there's an entire forum in RCGroups devoted to FPV, at http://www.rcgroups.com/video-piloting-fpv-rpv-469/
