Wow, thanks! It's a very steady platform, more so then my current parkfun fusion.

Looks amazing, thanks my friend!

(and damn you for living in such a beautiful country) :P

Mine arrived yesterday and I have been to busy to even open the box. My RC club had a night fly tonight and tomorrow their having their yearly Toy's for Tot's fly-in. I am bringing my FPV Paraplane and FPV Busy Bee to give rides so if anyone is in Suffolk Virginia drop by.
Maybe I can dig into the EPP FPV box Sunday.
It's been a busy week.

Just with the fixed compact digital camera or helmet camera ..... I've been flying alone so far with the EPP FPV so you tend to keep it fairly close ....... there's no one flying FPV around here so it's a new approach for us to consider .....

glad to see the kit arrived ....

What motor/prop did you decide to go with? ......

I went a little overboard with the motor Hobie :P

http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=15169

It's an 1800kv, the 1400kv wasnt in stock, and I didnt want to wait any longer...
I have some props lying around, so I'll try some of them out.
I guess the wings will fly off this thing when I go WOT...

Did you use longer sticks inside the wings? They seem to be a bit short.

I'll post some videos when the weather gets better.
