You're right!
Even more impressive is watching your antenna tracker following the plane!

Does the FPV Japan records through static ? Posted about it in the recorder tread, awaiting answer. If I could find a used aiptek MPVR, I'd be happy. Will look around that awhile, and will retry my aiptek to see if it can come back to life.

I'm at it again



No peanut gallery this time, but that actually took some of the pressure off and I was able to slow down and felt more prepared.

Cliff has made a recommendation that would significantly improve my video quality, but the file sizes are huge. On this laptop, I'm constantly having to delete stuff so as not to hit the cap, so big video slices just aren't in the cards for now.

I am starting to figure out Movie Maker though

Thats cool orcoz. Just have confidence in the video and fly it FPV, much easier when you recognize lanfmarks. Just don't go too far and add just a bit of distance at a time so you don't lose video link. If you can have a spotter when testing the video range, it is much safer. And don't worry about the "Ghetto GS", it is very FPV spirit to improvise with things such as the rubbermaid tray.

Just happen to see the info in this post:

Can't imagine Aaron would use one that wouldn't record static. Send him a PM and ask him?

You could ship it to me, I could forward it to you. Too bad we are so far apart. They would likely charge me WA state sales tax.

Don't think it's the same model. My Aiptek will handle moderate static, but it will stop recording if it gets too bad.

I'll check mine to see if I can debug it, but I'd like to buy one anyway as a backup. Don't know if they will be able to charge it to my paypal account and ship it to ana merican adress ?

yeah.... that's a bit of a trip. I'm hoping that we get some other location suggestions that will make it easier for more guys to attend.

See Art ? I told ya

I was just telling to Art after an informal FPV meet with friends that FPVers have a different background than club members and that both need some work to "blend" together. They are both a nice bunch, but different attitudes.
