Second FPV flight with my OpenPilot Quad. Just a short flight testing some tiny PID tweaks. Flight is mostly in acro.

Johann, I've spent a lot of time tuning and balancing. I am not using a head tracker here and just using the gopro output right now since I am waiting for a dedicated fpv camera.

I like your first flight into the tree better!

Are you doing anything to remove vibration to the camera? Great flying! Love my OP boards

@ryan, haha! that was actually a lot of "fun."

@johann, i have the camera mounted on a piece of ply with several layers of neoprene tape so it's dampened. that could be why it seems there's a head tracker.

@steve, i updated the post with a photo showing how the gopro is mounted on the frame. there are several layers of neoprene tape to slow down any vibration that get through the frame. it works fairly well, the next step is to find an alternate configuration where i can put the camera to remove the props. i'd like to have both options since i do like seeing the props when doing "fun" parkflying.

GOPRO2 medium FOV works great on a quad!
