Turnigy T1000FC Fixed-wing Auto Pilot System With GPS and Return To Home


This little gem is great for unexperienced fixed-wing pilots and people who fly fpv. The T1000FC auto pilot system with GPS is an in-line flight stabilizing system that offers auto level, tilt angle limits and return to home functionality for conventional aircraft (fixed wing, delta, etc... excluding multicopters and heli's).

From the pier and back


I haven't posted a video for several months. This is mainly because I haven't been flying. I've been driving. Which I made a video about that you can see below. I recently was blessed with the oportunity to start a tattoo shop locally. It's a small one man custom shop and the best part is the location.

Loveland Pass FPV Proximity Flying

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…
