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.


Back then I was very worried about flying over water...


This was before Cruize mode :)


About 16km and 35 minutes, safe touch down!

Hero3 Mass Model(s)

I modeled and printed some GoPro Hero3 Mass Models for use with my Tarot T-2D gimbal.  I decided it was dumb to constantly risk my Hero3 when I didn't need to so I created these.  One is a…

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.

I thought…

Ghetto fpv goggles.

Ok so for the first time, this isn't one of my own posts. However, it is possible to make your own ghetto fpv goggles to enable you to have a more immersive flying experience, and also look like a dimwit at the same time ;)

And if you're happy to buy a cheap kit version. Look here: …

My new drone instructable

This is my first real UAV. I have taken off the ramp shuttle and am re-working my landing gear to be much lighter but still ramp launched. I have been inspired by the amazing projects on this site for a long time and finally made the leap into the world of FPV flight. Once I test this…

How to FPV your multirotor

FPV Maiden of QAV500G with Brushless Gimbal. Windy!

Went out to the Berkeley Marina to try and do some tuning of the FC on my recently upgraded QAV500.  Wind was howling (must have been 15+mph) so I decided instead to try a short FPV flight for the first time to see how the gimbal handled it.  

I think it did fairly well considering the conditions but there is still some random "jumpy" behavior on the gimbal which…

Ostrich Quadcopter

Some people may remember the "dead cat" copter from a Dutch artist one year ago (and not the conversion kit they sell at hobbyking). The artist thought it was a bit small and could not carry enough payload. To fix this important problem he build his second model the "Ostrich Quadcopter". From the video it looks like it can carry a few kilograms and maybe he plans to…

3D Printed Quad Video

I have had my 3D printed quad finished for a while now.  I have been working on a 3D printed tricopter, anti-vibration mounts, gimbals and some other fun stuff.  I finally buckled down and put a short video together of some print time-lapses and some videos of the quad in the air.  She flies very well with an old kk Blackboard but I would like to add an APM or a Naza onto it.…

Stereoscopic FPV flying

This is a video I found of 3D video recording, but it got me thinking about 3D FPV flying. Especially with Team Blacksheep kind-of flying, close to the ground or obstacles like trees, surely stereo viewing must add a lot and help determine distances. Is anyone doing this and is it worthwhile? Haven't got my Fat Sharks that long yet, but start thinking how it must…
