Awesome Video I loved it when you did a low level flight down the road. This Video makes me want to get right into this end of the hobby. whats your setup cost....without the easyjet. It looks like you may have added ailerons? I was thinking of maybe trying to put it into my MPX Twister.

I use Fatshark RCV922 goggle. If you buy the RCV922, 500mw tx and ccd cam, it will cost around $500. Gluing the cam on a servo arm and you have the basic setup.
Headtracker cost around $170.
Fun... priceless

But watch out, if you tried it, you will love it and will think only about it...

Cool video!

Is that a zlog? I have been thinking of taking of the display of my zlog and mount it like that. but im afraid of breaking the thing. How did you do it?

FPV is really immersive !!!


Just to give you an idea how immersive fpv is, just look at this picture with me and my human catapult friend, as you can see I really feel like beeing on a deck of a carrier ready to be catapulted in the sky !!!
