Well i decided to get into FPV seeing its coming on Fall here now, the air is getting cool and before you know it,t he days are well be shorter.

First up i wanted something that would be easy to fly! Carry anywhere between 4200mah or maybe even up too 5000mah, and have a AUW anywhere between 1000g-1500mah.
I considered Buying a Ritewing or something like it, But i like building and testing.
So i decided to build one from Owens cornering Pink Foam.
I got 2 4'x8' sheets for $14 from my local Home depot!

For the FPV i have the 5.8g 200mw FPV Wireless AV Tx & Rx Set
I well not be using goggles at first. I have plan to get a LCD monitor and install it in one of those Big Black Rubber maid Action packers.
Could easily make/install it like a Speaker and surround with Black foam, like the inside of a TX case!!
ANd save up for a decent pair of goggles

For the camera i well be wiring a 2.5mm 4 pole jack plug it directly feeding the video through my GoPro!

Thanks for RC Flight Test for this great video.
