Probably not a good idea. Mind you FPVing inside a prison would be cool.

The PSU is up and running. 20mins of soldering well most of that was figuring out the best output plugs to use out of the ones I could find. Didn't fancy a trip to Craplins.
Yep plugged it in and no smoke. just the sound of a fan running and a green led.
Now charging a 3s 3amp battery at 3amps just to break it in. So far so good and so cheap

depends what you want to do with it...as most FPVing is illegal after a certain range and without the right kit you might as well go for anything......however I'm running a 200mw setup as I know this is within the legal limits.

that said how many people are using a spectrum Tx and got it running on the US power output to increase range??

only legal if you are a HAM? 25mW for the rest of us!
this is for a ground/water based project so distance and altitude does not matter!

so I'm looking into building a fast quad (a racer if you like) and was wondering if anyone had used the really cheap hobbyking v1 frame.....is it any good? its only a tenner and i dont expect miracles but its very light when compared to CF.
also does anyone know whats the highest power setup you could get out of a 3s pack.

i was thinking http://www.giantshark.co.uk/221206-2...-p-402397.html swinging a 6 4.7 prop......am I thinking the right thing in relation to power or am I blowing smoke as i seem to be doing alot today.

It's S H I T mate, it's very fragile and almost guaranteed a wright off on the slightest crash.

My warthox quad weighs about 600g with a 2200 3s, it's fast, way faster than my Disco could be.
