What Should The Perfect FPV Platform Have??


Ok - I started this thread discussing the Penguin B.
http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/UAVPENGUINB.html


:

After a few posts on the Penguin B, we were lucky enough to almost immediately get representation from Troy Built Models (the distributor of the Penguin B) to join the thread. So now - we are discussing what FPV pilot's feel would be the perfect FPV platform. Feel free to add what you feel would be the requirements for the end all sub $500 platform.

* discuss *

To big for me !
And to dangerous, FPV flying is a hobby, and should not cause any danger to anyone else :P

If this plane did go out of control (that can happen when flying FPV) it will do some pretty bad damages if it hit a house\car\people !

Looks like it's marketed for Law Enforcement / UAV duty. I'm sure that you can hear it a mile away though - not very covert.

I'm sure those servos are certified airworthy and approved. When you make/sell servos that are certified for UAV aircraft you can charge whatever you feel like.

When it's government you can sell them $600 toilet seats you bought at Home Depot for $60.
