FPV Compilation 2012 Part 2 - Enjoy the Ride!
Wow, this brings back fond memories of many hours flying and some awesome locations for my first full year in FPV. These 2 part compilations are a result of some 30+ hours of GoPro and Keycam footage which I've captured in 2012.
Enjoy the ride and feel free to leave feedback and ask any questions.
2013 has a lot to live up to, but already I'm looking forward to it and a return to Scotland where a lot of the footage was captured is very much on the cards again.
Aircraft used include:
Homemade Tricopter with OpenPilot Copter Control Board
DJI Quadcopter with OpenPilot Copter Control Board
Ritewing Zephyr II
Flying Wings Venturi
Grauper Elektro Rookie

Having Holidayed in the South West of Scotland over the past ten years; in recent years as I’d ventured up there with my wife and two children I’d often thought to myself what a stunning place it would be to capture some aerial videos. Having got into FPV flying in the past twelve months, it just seemed like something I would have to turn into reality!
Having been wife endorsed, I suggested a date in June to my RC/FPV buddy Steve and we duly booked another friends holiday owned cottage in a place called New Galloway where I have previously stayed many times. Prior to the trip, I knew of many locations where we could fly from and we set off for a few days armed with various flying contraptions from multi-rotors, flying wings and gliders.
The result was five days of truly spectacular flying (yes we had crashes), lots of insect bites and some amazing footage which I will share with you as I get through the 68 gigabytes of video footage captured from twelve plus flying locations!
I hope you enjoy the videos as much as we enjoyed flying, capturing and trying to bring the videos alive.
Here are the first five videos and more will follow:
Big Water of Fleet Viaduct – Dumfries & Galloway..
Situated near the small town of Gatehouse of Fleet in Dumfries & Galloway. This 20 arch viaduct (as featured in the 1935 film 39 Steps) provided the awesome engineering backdrop to a first session of flying on our RC/FPV trip.
I'm curretly building a 52" Marston Pterodactyl and documenting the steps taken on the above blog. As well as this and other RC related tip bits, I'll be uploading RC videos captured with my awesome GoPro camera. My YouTube Channel.
