A must see vid


This video is amazeing..it's flown with a quad copter and a gopro camera and the entire flight is flown with the guy wearing goggles sitting on his deck.. ..He fly's from 2000 ft over the guys house then he fly's through his living room at 2:00 . then fly's over his own head. Too cool.

But you don't really care about that kind of FPV. What you want to do (with Corsair Nut) is (although, on a 30-40lb T38s):
StarSky. L-59. Ввод в строй. (12 min 56 sec)

Awesome! Does anyone know what kind of equipment this guys was using? Looks compact and minimal and I like that.

I am a fan of eagle tree equipment. Not too cheap, but you can find it at hobby king (even the USA warehouse) for a much lower price.

Well I did my first FPV flight today..prety cool, harder than it looks. I hand launched the plane, got it high enough then put the goggles on.. Funny feeling hearing the plane get farther and farther away until you can't hear it anymore. Then getting yourself in sight way in the distance on the ground and flying toward yourself and hearing the plane get louder and louder... I crused all around and got pretty high..No OSD on screen display yet..so I don't know how high I got but it seems like was way up there. My first goggle landing was OK,
I can see how it can be addicting.

It was fun buzzing myself

LOL, yea Rodger I can definetly say I live in the middle of nowhere There was one other guy in town who flew r/c but he dosn't fly much anymore. The nearest flying club is Vegas at 210 miles, Soo yeah, sniff, sniff, I am all alone out here..wipe a tear...

It's a great airplane proving ground though. The really big dry lake bed 7 miles north of Tonopah, has some history. The Tonopah airport manager has some great stories about test pilots with F-104's doing wild stuff out there.


FPV equipment used is the Foxtech AIO goggles, Cyclops Nova OSD, Sony 720 camera, Vidio and radio can't be the same so I fly on 72mhz, and video is on 2.4 ghz,

Yea Walt, FPV seems like it could be pretty fun. As soon as I figure it out a little more I will pass along what I learn.
