Not a bad price there Mongrel.

I used to have the GoPro 1, and it takes a great video!

Yep! I still have one on my Z2. I figured if it goes in, I would rather lose a cheaper HD1 than a HD2.

I took one of this lot for a second camera for my multi-rotors. So IF my Z does go in, at least now I have a spare. LOL!!

I have both the Hero and Hero 2. The Hero 2 is far better, however at this lower price, it is an excellent buy. If I didn't already have a Hero, I would buy one as a spare unit to my Hero 2.

SW versus Eagle - Round 2


Managed a single FPV flight today with my Black SW 1900mm.

That pesky Eagle was in the area again.....this time I got him on camera.
No damage from the Eagle this time, just a little bit of dust left behind on the wing from his feathers.

I did have an aileron servo let go today though. Managed to get home and land safe with a heap of rudder.

Enjoy the video.

Early morning session


Got out this morning for an early morning fly. It was 1 degree C when I arrived at a very wet paddock. There was absolutely no wind at all.
A perfect morning.

FPV ship No. 3 successfully maidened this week Skywalker

Weather was not the best (windy) but RVOSD fly by wire can make a pilot out out of anyone. I was pulling 30 amps for about 20kph over the ground then RTH gliding at 85.

Hi Al. I see you have the tracker sorted! Good stuff. I managed 2 hours soaring with Hangies today at Ochre Point. It wasnt that windy on the coast, 8-12Kts.
BTW the HMAC auction is on next Friday. Everyone will be there.
