and probably more I've missed

and if you add one of these Quanum ELITE QB58 AIO fpv cameras at $19.18 you will get free or $0.75 delivery in the UK, only seems to knock a dollar off for the EU but this bolt v2 1300 4s gives free shipping from the EU

1.4k posts and the last 20 are adverts/links to various online suppliers. I wont say what I would like to because I will get another warning but I wouldn't shed a tear if you got banned permanently.

Also, what I post is none of your damn concern, it's within the rules of the site so if you don't like it find a different forum to be miserable on.

I don't know, I've been on this forum longer than most and I think this is all unnecessary.
I had a look at your links and just found bits of old durafly airfames. I don't really know you're all are getting all excited about.

Normal service to be resumed..

2.4 video for LRS?


So.. Normal service has been resumed:-

TBS stuff is supposed to be the best but it stupidly priced. So if you buy it you're either earning too much or you're mad.
Lawmate is hit or miss.
Boscam? - lord knows what you're getting
IRC - seems OK on paper - to my mind it has many advantages but doesn't appear to be in favour.

Answers on a postcard!

What! $7 for trying a biplane BF 110 or an F-82 type craft using micro edge fuses doesn't excite you

Hahaha, sucked in by the prop wash :-) Sucker!! Magnums are just so good, anyone into FPV should have one, they will only realise that once they own one. You can fit through gaps smaller than the plane, the wings just squish a bit and it pops through. It would easily fly the whole track with 5 minutes practice, I didnt know the course or lines at all first time out. The ONLY disadvantage with Magnums is the wind. If there is even a breeze, forget it, fly a quad. But if it is flat calm, there honestly are few planes that are as much fun .

The Key is full sized FPV gear, the AIO cams have shonky lenses, especially for fixed wing, the warping makes it an utterly frustrating and disappointing experience. I use a 1177 and a 200mw vtx with sma's removed and a light clover soldered on, just to save a bit of weight.

I will do a vid if I get the chance, but I forgot to press record on my DVR for most of it....was just too excited/ nervous!

Ah yes good shout completely forgot about the stupid FoV - same reason I have a couple of 3" quads in pieces, waiting on new plates to support the Runcam Mini

I may have to accidentally order one very soon
