Dan,
Make sure you post some videos here from your FPV WidowMaker if you decide to get one. I love the idea of a small light weight fpv platform and if it works for you, maybe I'll try one.

I already have done a small FPV setup with the PopWing - check my blog, lots of videos from FPV footage and LOS too!

And, don't worry, I'll make tons of videos on the WidowMaker if I get it!

Here, this is basically what I'm planning to do with the WidowMaker if I get it, except with different gear and maybe testing some more components.

Enjoy!

I just received a widowmaker with the intention of FPV. I had considered the popwing, but after shipping cost the widowmaker seems like a higher quality wing for only 10 bucks more.

My plans are a rewound LRK 10 turn 23awg CF2822 spinning an APC 8x6 on 3s. Ill use HK 5.8tx with KKv2 for stabilization. I want something fun for a couple acre field near me with trees as pylons.

Hey Nick,
Do you have a KKv2 and have you played with the fixed wing stabilization? I hooked one up and can't get it to work on an airplane.

Not Nick, but which firmware are you using? The original KK2 or HappySunday's OpenAero2?
I have an Assassin that I've setup with the KK2 and OpenAero2, Everything's working but haven't had a chance to fly it yet. We get Winter here, been running -10C to -15C for most of November and now it's December!

I tired the kk2 firmware. There must be a trick to it because I can't get it to work.

I have yet to install or test the kkv2, but I plan on using openaero firmware.

The KK2 firmware is setup for multicopter use and has some mixing to setup for a wing.
OpenAero2 is built for planes from the start. The thing that stumped me for a bit was that you need to do the mixing for elevons in the transmitter and the rest works well.

I've got mine mounted in front of the motor with a wedge of foam to keep it level and then 4 nylon 3 mm bolts down through the formica motormount under the wing.

But the lam sticks fine on it's own if you set the iron correctly.

Aaaahhh!!


This assassin is more frustrating than any of my helis yet it's far less complicated. I cant for the life of me get it flying. Just broke another prop.
