Skywalker @ The coast
Spent this week on holidays at Batemans Bay on the south coast of NSW and the weather turned on an absolute treat for flying after the fist rainy day.
After spending the last 6 or so weeks building up a Skywalker in anticipation of this event it was a nerve racking experience to FPV it the first time over the ocean/Forrest but after a shaky start all when great.
DVR broke 2 days before trip so no video of my best FPV adventures to date

Some video break up when aircraft is flying directly away at distance but this clears with a slight turn, may need to review antenna position.

Nope, no mods on the RX, I have the AR 8000 rx with one satelite that I put out on the Skywalker tail boom which may have helped.
The video tx was from Rangevideo.com, very happy wit it so far and my skew planer antenna just arrived for it so I have to give that a go and see if there is any improvement.
