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…

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.

 

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)

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…

Hi All,

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

I thought…

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…
