I have been flying this Radian for about 2 years, and taught others to fly from it. It's a great trainer.
So I decided to cut it up and install some FPV gear in it. The antenna and OSD was embedded into the wing. I am using the Dragon Link for RC TX and RX. At this time I am using 5.8Ghz for Video. Can Read more on my Vimeo page of some the issues I had getting it in the air. I am using 3c 2200mah. Getting 20-30 minute flights.
I started ordering parts for my ground station about 1 1/2 years ago. Since then things have changed big time with antennas.

This summer I had a chance to put together the 6061 Tricopter. Two bad ESC right out the package. Learning to work with the Multiwii Paris 3 controller. Several months latter I am working with a Wobble in the Yaw motor. It came down to the legs being too long. When the board was energized the motors jolted, causing an oscilation in the rear. The Multiwii would see this and continue to correct itself in flight. Hope to use it with FPV soon. The pictures are with the original size legs.
Getting 13-15 flights with a 3c 5000 lipo.
