I just discovered a new FPV Simulator and it's free.
It's created and proposed by the blog FPV PASSION.
In my opinion, it is a cool simulator for everybody who wants to discover FPV !
Also very nice for flight preparation and line of sight checks!!
The development is based on the Google Earth Plugin so you can fly over 3D…Continue

The recent Colorado floods are giving us a great look at how useful UAVs will be in disaster recovery and photography in the future.
While FEMA may have grounded Falcon UAV's aerial survey mission of the flooding around Boulder and…Continue
Ok, so in my previous blog post: http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/ghetto-fpv-quadcopter-1 I wrote a fairly comprehensive instruction on how to build a ghetto fpv quadcopter for around £115. It works well. However, just this week…Continue
Last Saturday I was finally able to do a flight I've been wanting to do pretty much since starting FPV. I took my Deep Reaper flying wing up to the top of Loveland Pass, Colorado for some awesome proximity action along the ridge line above the Arapahoe Basin ski area. Even though the lighting wasn't the best because of the dark clouds and my Deep Reaper isn't…Continue

A short video I made using my MultiWii quad flying at my school today morning :) I'm 15, so any opinions are appreciated. Please watch in HD for best effect. Hope you enjoy!!!!!! Shot on a windy day,before a storm so I had fight with the controls a bit.
PX31 is a 44inch large wing with a payload of 150g-200g using a external pod its one of the earlier models I used as demonstrator mainly as a simple FPV drone
One of the highlights is its structure. Likewise this wing takes a lot of beating…
At the summer 2013 Colorado FPV meet in South Park, near Hartsel, Colorado, a group of us did a special project. We did a one-way, point-to-point FPV flight from the top of a hill next to our campsite to the far side of a reservoir 8.6 miles away, handing off control from the pilot at the launch site (myself) to a pilot at the landing site halfway through the…Continue
Earlier this week I was able to fulfill one of my long-time goals of making an FPV assent of one of Colorado's 14,000 foot peaks (14ers in local lingo). I flew my Deep Reaper XL flying wing to the top of the 14,065 foot Mount Bierstadt.
Flying at high altitudes can be a challenge. My launch point was at the top of Guanella Pass, which is around 11,600…Continue
Matt was flying his iFly Quadcopter near a castle in England and got it stuck. If you have ever lost one of these aircraft that you have spent countless hours on, then you know how this feels.
Well, as a last resort Matt put a plea out to the RC community and snoopw11 stepped up to the plate with his…Continue
I wanted to share my quad transport slash storage slash FPV groundstation for some time already..
Ordinary tool box, the biggest one from 3-in-1 special offer pack, €15.99 in local hobby store:
When opened, my quadcopter is folded inside with batteries, charger etc:…Continue
Fresh from Hobbyking is this video switch which allows you to switch a maximum of 3 camera's on your aircraft (or boat, car for that matter) by the flick of a switch. This switch features one receiver input, 3 camera inputs and one video output
With dimensions of only 30x18x6mm and just 4 grams this is a small and light device.…Continue
Well, technically, I did shoot him, with a GoPro. Sorry if I got you all upset or excited about animal killing. Back when I was a wee lad my dad told me I could hunt and shoot animals without a gun. After looking at him with my usual blank stare he said,"With a camera." This from the man who asked me how birth control could only cost a…Continue
Hi ppl !
You may want to know if the DJI Phantom is suitable for FPV.
A french guy wrote a tutorial here :
This is a short summary of the modifications :
- Replaced stock radio transmitter with a 8 Ch receiver Graupner GR-16
- Drilled a hole and placed the video tx inside the phantom's…Continue
I made a video showing how I used a $20 ADS-B receiver to overlay air traffic on FPV video from my drone--in a web browser. The blog post, "Augmented reality display of air traffic for amateur drones" has more details, including instructions…Continue
Last week(week 5) I tested out a new FPV system using 1.2 GHZ. It works great. The only problem I had was that it was locking out my 2.4GHZ control. So for the video I used my old 72mhz radio. Let's just call it glitch. It glitched me right into a patch of stinging nettles. So I ordered a low pass filter from Readymaderc.com. Then I commenced to building yet…

My wife made a comment about it taking a long time to assemble the BoxCopter and get into the air. So I figured I'd come up with a new prototype. This is it. A balsa h-copter that can fly with or without a box. Making things lighter and modular made for longer flight times and faster assembly. I did make things more simple but…
