Witnessonly,
Convince the media that they need them and they'll do all the lobbying for us! After all, they have more use for them than we do...

Hey guys on the subject of the penguin, I maidened mine on the weekend. Got it from othfpv cheap freight! Mind you he is in the same city as me!
1st flight was so un eventful I landed and put the goggles on it didn't even need trim!
Flew it with the ugly canopy on, flight cam didn't really notice any thing but the gopro footage had the curve of the canopy in it, not to bad tho.
Just waiting for a mate to get back from holiday as he got some very close up formation flying video, so close our ground spotter thought we were going to hit.
Bruce's review was spot on! Except the bit about the canopy affecting flight performance, however I must try it without the canopy

Glad your new toy is going well for you.
So you are saying that the laws of aerodynamics (and Bruce) are wrong and the canopy does not affect the flight performance at all even though you have not tried to fly without it?

Ive flown one with and without the fishbowl and there is a major difference, I don't like it either way so maybe im bias.

What I meant was, his comment about what it would do in corners I didn't notice.
However I am going try it without the canopy cos I agree its uglier with it on, not that it going to get prettier with it off lol it's not a good lookin airframe !!

I dont think it's a bad airframe by any means. Butt Ugly Yes... but not bad, I noticed it when flying in wind/crosswind quite a lot. Wind pushes the nose around and makes a for a few funny characteristics. Maybe a bigger fin would help? Its pretty much totally shadowed by the nose and relies heavily on prop airflow for control authority and stability.
If you put flat black paper on the "dashboard" it will stop some of the reflections. As the dash sees more sun it starts to crack between the bubbles in foam and cracks becomes white and shiny and the reflections on inside of canopy get worse.

I used the Mat black sticker they give you and it works really well!
Looks like it will be another week before our next flights before I can try it without the canopy.
Just went to upload my gopro footage and my cards corrupt anyone know of a good free file recovery tool?

So how many amps for what speed...That's the most important part for long range FPV work.

For example the raptor uses around 4 amps to cruise at around 35 to 40 kph ( no wind),

so how well does the penguin do?
