Oculus Rift DK2 with MavLink head tracking and HUD, first steps (OVRPilot part 1)

This is the first post in what I hope to be a series of posts on exploring the possibilities in using the Oculus Rift alongside a UAV. The plan in the long run is to create a GCS for the Oculus Rift or other HMDs that gives you a feeling of actually sitting up in the air being able to look…

Airbus submits patent application for windowless jet cockpit. Fully opaque cockpit would let pilots navigate with viewscreens and holograms

The FAA thinks FPV should be illegal while the airline industry is filing patents on flying airliners with no windows.

An article published in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer the other evening describes a patent application from European aerospace company Airbus in which pilots fly aircraft entirely through…

Please Sign This Petition to the FAA (You Can't Take the Sky From Me!)

Hello everyone. I have been active on this forum for over a year now, and have had the opportunity to discuss my slow, but steady progress in the RC multi-rotor hobby. I had previously flown RC helicopters; and planes before that.

Aerodynamic FPV Bixler (v1.1) with APM 2.5

Hi there

Just a quick post of my Bixler v1.1 build and some mods I`ve done in the last weeks! The main goal was to fit in an APM 2.5 and a MinimOSD / Telemetry as well as the GPS, the FPV gear and all the standart RC gear "inside" the plane in an attempt to make this plane more aerodynamic. I didn`t see this setup so far, so I thought somebody might find it useful / has any suggestions.

The camera, the 5.8gHz TX and the MinimOSD are protected under the cockpit…

Some FPV (Cockpit View)


This is just run of the mill FPV flying, but I enjoy reviewing the fight for more than the visual perspective. Re-living the altitude, the roll and pitch, the rate of ascent and decent, the airspeed during the flight and the battery condition gives me a much fuller context than just viewing the HD video I was recording using my GoPro H3 Black.  Here is simple flyover of ready to be developed…

FPV Flight to Robben Island

A quick documentary of my FPV flight to Robben Island, where Mr Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 18 years.

Flew the FLIP FPV last week

What a freaking blast after dealing with a crappy flight controller not APM. I put it all together and it worked. I had an audience which was nerve racking but cool at the same time. Theres nothing like escaping ground effects and rising above it. after I got my finger control back I was moving the quad…

Meet Flip a REALLY Tough little Quadcopter

Hi All,

Some of you may remember a while back I put in some posts on F3330 and F450 DJI FlameWheel QuadCopters detailing construction and operation.

I really love those little FlameWheels for delivering many hours of fun and resisting my every effort to destroy them.
