Little adventure happened on a recent flight.Continue
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…Continue
It may not look like much, but she's got it where it count. After much flying , realize that the original frame which is EPS foam didn't stand up well to the abuse of hard landings and later scrapped. This time replace it with EPP foam to give it the added durability it needs,

The Mini Talon FPV V-tail Drone is the new little brother of the popular Talon FPV plane. The all EPO moulded airframe comes in kit form and due to its smaller size is great for packing with you on your favorite FPV gear. The kit comes un-assembled…Continue
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…Continue
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.
Recently, I started working with…Continue
This project was done to understand the basic idea of first-person-view (FPV). FPV can be referred to as remote-person view (RPV), or simply video piloting. FPV has become popular recently in the radio control hobby community.

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…Continue
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…Continue
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!
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…Continue
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…Continue
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.

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: …Continue

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…Continue
I made this video to show a typical easy set-up on a DJI Phantom but the concept is the same for any multirotor.
