Great job!

Do the EDF guys really call their fans and motors "turbines"?

no, in other countries the term is more acceptable (different translations)

nice VR flyer! an HET6904 and 2W-20 on 4S 3700 should get you 4-5 minute flights and lots of power.

or, if you want a ballastic F-16, sacrificing runtime for absolute power, drop an ARC 28-47-1 in that fan on 4S. that'll make her scream

the best laid plans.......

Your videos are the reason i got into rc flying 2 years ago.

right now i feel confident enough to play arround with my first fpv plane,

an easystar for starters.......

I might sound snobbish for not honoring all the heritage.


BUT

FPV is the most radical turn the rc hobby took the 20 years ive been watching it


Unless your moving some 1000$ plus rocket arround over 200 mph,

you are generally considered childish by the uniniciated ,

even if you are able to safely use your helicopter to cut the grass flying inverted ,

or keep your f3j ship aloft for half an hour in no lift.

to somebody with no interest in the hobby its all the same .......

FPV is the one thing that changes every bystanders attitude from mild sympathy ( for the lonely spouse?) to outcries of appreciation.

that aint childs play , thats like a childs dream come true!!!!!

beeing able to take part in this for less than the price of a full blown composite ship is THE REVOLUTION in my eyes.

and you are the kingpin / the cutting edge / the epitome ( in my eyes again)

Seeing your F 16 on RC groups frontpage, imho, finally does justice to

what you have done for the sport.

Keep up the good work

Thanks for all the inspiration.

For me, that is the best fpv video i have ever seen - my ultimate goal. I was going away from edf because you normally cant see too much of the fuselage/wings with the camera mounted so far up front. BUT full points to VRFlyer again - 360 mod and great detail in the cockpit give a fantastic view.

Might need a longer runway or flaps on that F16!
