UAVX Octocopter


This is my new UAVX Octocopter, it has a Go Pro HD camera mounted to a gyro stabilized Tilt unit. I am using a 1500mw 1.3GHz VTX and a Dragon Link for the RC link. My GS uses a simple omni antena and Eyetop goggles. The thing is a total blast to fly FPV and from the ground view. My boys think it looks like Dark Helmet from Space Balls.

i'm assuming you fly through the go pro
can you still tell if the octo is tilted when using a gyro on the cam?

Yes, you can tilt the camera up and down and set the amount of stability with one of the pots on the RC TX. I am mainly using this for my new Aerial Video business.
