Yippee! Cullen and I won cameras - he'll be donating it to the fire department and I'll be saving mine for when I can afford a good FPV setup!

Haha all you need. You just have to fly the quad up to the windows of theburning house and look for people. Its a way of protecting the firemen and saving more lives. They don't go into a room with nobody in it, so they can save more people's lives. So since I get to keep the cam, what else do I need?

Yeah for an FPV setup. Just a reciever and goggles right? I don't want that fancy ground station stuff.....

Nope, you'll need a transmitter too, as well as a RX, and goggles for $300+ if you want but a $100 7'' TV works well too on a budget.

You might need antennas, but it depends where you buy the stuff from.

Amazing what some time and love can do to a stack of balsa. She's lighter AND stronger than her predecessor, and has less of a drag signature as well.

At this point I just need to strip a little covering on the tail feathers to epoxy them in place and then cut some cooling holes at the nose. From there it's just hinging and electronic installation.

Absolutely needs iron crosses, too. I was thinking about bumming some stock Slow Stick decals off someone, but they might be just a smidge too big. Hmmm....
