Thanks for the video subaru. I bet it is hard to fly looking out the front window of the plane, FPV. I look forward to trying it. You cant see anything but whats straight in front of you. No side views. Thanks again for the videos.

Tom

P.S. Have a safe and happy holidays.

FPV is pretty darn easy. Anyone who can fly line of sight can fly fpv with a capable airframe. And I think more people who never flew RC at all would be able to FPV vs fly it LOS. its like driving a car almost.... Everyone needs to know the limits and keep it safe and simple. thats all..

Ohh and installing a pan servo is a piece of cake, you can just hot glue the camera right on top of a servo horn, and secure the servo to the plane in a good location, now you can look on both sides as well as forward... for a hexacopter I think tilt would be a better option....

Agree with you KillerCut.

I can't flying well LOS (just forward, backward, left and right).
With the FPV there is no need to reverse the controls when your aircraft comes to you.

Thats why FPV is easier and quickly to learn than LOS (but costly)

And we must fly in a safe place because no side and rear views.

I have not done many flights FPV at all. That video I posted was one of my first FPV attempts, and was done in my front yard.

Since then I have built a whole new frame, and have not yet done any FPV with it. I just started messing with a new flight controller and have been busy tuning it.

But this is my new camera location, and it should help i think:
Flight Test #3 (4 min 43 sec)

Stop me before I build again!
Rebuilding myself a hquad for FPV as well. Taking my time building it up. So far its a basic airframe from 4x lightweight alu tubes and 4 cf plated sandwiched with m4 hex bolts.

Is that frame stiff enough in the middle? If you hold down three arm tips can you pick up the four easily? My guess is it might need a bit more bracing in the middle

Actually, quite stiff. If I grab opposing arms and twist I can barely make it flex. These are single tubes on the arms, so there is no picking up only one corner.

Yep, glb square tubes.

That's what wide angle lenses are for.

I have a 170 degree lense for close in flying around my home and trees and through small holes. And I fit a 120 degree for when I'm flying high or out at the field.

Yeah I have the same camera lens. The gopro is pretty wide and the smaller HD wing cam is 120 I believe. Got it from HK. Takes nice video.

Also, get used to yawing left/right to get your "situational awareness." I always look left/right before crossing the street
