Just AV FPV, not UAV, but brilliantly done.

Love the humility at the end there. Everyone crashes....
Awesome ending :)
What's the plane?
I'm waiting for his encore, where Prez Obama catches the aircraft on the White House lawn...
Did you guys take a look at his remote? One stick.
Yep. Is this one: http://www.becker-fm.de/shop/product/1040?gID=11
Kinda, vintage look.
It might actually be a lot easier to fly with this kinda setup. I know a few of the FPV guys I talk to on the forums are using X box controllers with great success. With a cheap foamy you don't really need to control the throttle beyond "on" to do what he is doing.
...And the FAA's response... "OMG, that UAV just hit a guy!"
He has some great videos on vimeo. He's like the Where's Waldo of R/C.
I've looked back at this about 5 times now, I'm still laughing out loud to myself! Brilliant video, I now have a proper reason to get a foamy, I'm gonna try full fpv though, attaching the goggles to a welders mask that I can flip up out of the way at the last moment - or not if I need the protection!
Not as talented admittedly, flying nose in at that speed that accurately is a true skill, but the goggles could take you round blind corners and through buildings.... right who's got a half reasonable FPV starter plane for sale, and I dont mind a bit of gaffer tape...
