FPV gimbal for zoom camera

It’s nice to fly around with your copter or plane, watching the surrounding area with a live view. Anyone who tried FPV knows that feeling. There is much to see with the regular equipment, but if you want to see some detail from a higher altitude, there is a problem. Normally it’s good to have a wide…

FPV testflight 3D printed crossfire

I upgraded my 3D printed crossfire with a Boscam transmitter TS351 and a all-in-one monitor RX-LCD5802. The FPV camera is a GoPro Hero 3. Simultaneously a Sparkfun GPS LS23060 was added. This implied adding code for reading, parsing and processing nmea data. I have chosen a complementary filter approach for fusion of accelerometer data and GPS data. I managed to…

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!
