In that case you are left with sail winch servos, that do between 1 and 3 complete turns, but not in mini sizes, or modify any mini servo yourself to do either continuous rotation, or gear it to an external potentiometer to give the angle you want..

There are loads of 360 servos on aliexpress, this is just one example and the first one I found when I searched :

they are continuous rotation, not 360 degree servos, despite what they may say

I managed to get 270 degree with this servo but I had to go into INav and increase the signal outputs to it's max for it to work.

Apparently it works with this servo as well

HI All

Newbie to FPV but not RC. I'm going through a big learning curve here seeing what bits do what and the terminology etc. I'm really into big gliders and big electric gliders. I've managed to get one of the Nano Talon black ops models and I'm looking at the Fatshark Scout goggles, my main reason for the Scouts' is that I wear glasses, unless anyone has any other suggestions they seem to fit the bill and aren't to expensive. As the plane is practically set up minus Rx and lipo I think this is a good starting point for what I want and to learn the ropes on then set up one of my electric gliders.

Where in the UK is everyone getting the hardware from as I'm struggling finding anything close. I'd prefer to go and have a look at stuff and try different goggles on. I live in the East Midlands and I'm quite happy to drive anywhere within reason. The biggest surprise so far is that there's a lot of soldering/building to do as opposed to mainstream RC were everything is set up for you. I like the learning bit and anything to improve my soldering skills is ok by me.

Thanks in advance everyone

Cheers, Tony

First off, we are getting it from Banggood.com or similar, don't buy your gear in the UK, you will pay far too much!

As for the goggles, those fatsharks are expensive box goggles which don't have a box goggle field of view!

They only have a 50 degree fov and you can get much better!

They also only have a tiny 4" screen with a 1136 x 640 resolution and don't have diversity!!!

Do not buy any goggles which font have diversity!

I'm shocked that people think they can charge that much for those goggles, they are not worth what they are priced at and 4x too expensive in my opinion.

For less money you can get a skyzone SJ-V01 diversity box goggle with a 7" screen, a resolution of 1280x800 and 72 degrees fov

The wider the field of view, the more immersive it will be and 50 degree's is not very immersive lol.

As well as being a lower resolution, the fatshark scout also only appear to support analogue external in where is the skyzone SJ-V01 goggles support both analogue and hdmi inputs should you wish to go down the HD route later on.

I use mine on just analogue at the moment but use both the internal diversity receiver or plug in an external diversity rx on a groundstation depending on what I'm doing.

These are the goggles I have, look at the specs of them and you will see what I mean about them stomping on the overpriced fatsharks.
The link is also to them on Banggood, where many of us buy our gear- planes, motors,props, battery's, chargers ect ect, the whole lot can be bought there and I NEVER buy from the UK!

The bigger the FOV the more it hurts your eyes!

Box goggles are not for everyone.

A big field of view might hurt yours but to say it is that way for everyone is wrong.

Big field if view is absolutely the best experience for fixed wing, it's only freestyle quad and race quad flyers that benefit from a narrow field of view.

50 FOV for me, can you get bigger?

Cheers for the replies so far, good stuff. Food for thought on the goggles front though. Which has brought up another bunch of questions, sorry!

Anybody out there who wear glasses and still get on with "normal", not box, goggles? If you can't wear the goggles over you glasses then what options for getting prescription lenses? Where from and are they any good? Also still with goggles, what should I look for eg diversity, HD etc etc. What 's popular but more importantly what works. Appreciate on asking what everyone is using is up to the individual and people will swear by one make or the other.

Price range will probably dictate as well so I'll state I don't want to pay more than 250 for my first pair - more than happy to buy second hand (as long as I know what to look out for, which I don't at the minute), I must be able to see through them as I'm a glasses wearer , if I can get prescription lenses from somewhere even better, lastly after market support - guess this is going to be hard from China.

Cheers in advance again.

TRIED THE BANGGOOD LINK but it just came up with a generic what's for sale page with everything but FPV goggles. I do have an account with these as I tend to get my lipos from them for my electric gliders.

Scout isn't that bad looking at reviews.


For first goggles scout looks good it may not be the best but with a squeeze glasses can fit in
FATSHARK SCOUT| 4" FPV GOGGLES (4 min 26 sec)

This will be in budget. This picture shows glasses how they fit https://cdn-unmannedtech.pressidium....V-Goggle-1.jpg
Better goggles cost more and you will need special diopters made from https://rho-lens.com/rho-lens-fpl-v2/ this will be way out of budget.
If you really like fpv and you require more from your goggles you can always sell goggles and upgrade when you think the investment is worth it.

I disagree, they are not diversity, any goggles which are not diversity are a huge no no!!!!

They are over priced low spec goggles and far better for for less is avaliable.
