launch heavy fpv plane

I have put together a long range capable finwing penguin with 2 x 5000 mah batteries + ezuhf video equipment. I have to get a friend to hand launch it but its quite difficult to get right. I would say it takes 3 attempts to get it launched. Given that i dont want to reduce the battery capacity or weight is there a reliable and easy way to launch? See More

"This has been a long standing issue, the best way to get the logs for a long flight is to remove the SD card and manually copy them over."

"yes, it will work, but you need to keep in mind that not all DVRs are created equal :) many introduce about half a second delay, others hang a lot and to regain your video feed you need to restart them.  but there are pretty good ones too. "

Large FPV Screen

It would appear that the largest purpose built widescreen FPV monitor is 10.1". When i say purpose built i mean it does not have the "blue screen" issue. I watched a video on youtube where the author stated that if you put a DVR inline with your video and then feed that to any screen , that it will never blue screen.Does anyone know if this is true or can try it ? If it worked then i would ditch my monitor, buy a DVR and use a 27" 12 volt screen.See More

Spencer Willis replied to Damo's discussion Camera Pan Tilt Power in the group ArduCopter User Group
"Sounds okay to me. You probably want to power the output rail with only one esc (or use the cable from the 3DR PDB which provides 5V from one of the ESCs)."

Damo replied to Damo's discussion Camera Pan Tilt Power in the group ArduCopter User Group
"With jp1 removed the bec from the esc powers the output so It is the same as powering directly from the bec or am I missing something?"

Johann van de Venter replied to Damo's discussion Camera Pan Tilt Power in the group ArduCopter User Group
"No  You will brown out your APM.  APM is not intended to power Servos. Use a BEC for the power. Only connect signal wire of servos to the APM. "
