Just AV FPV, not UAV, but brilliantly done.

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...
