First Person Visual (FPV)
Here is my Skywalker FPV system. Although I am an experienced Electrical Engineer, RF Engineer, and electric R/C enthusaist, I am relatively new to FPV. When I started to investigate this aspect of R/C, I got the FPV bug.
When I test flew the Skywalker, I replaced the
video transmitter and camera with some lead weights to keep the components safe
until I was ready for them. This allowed me to keep the plane fully loaded and
balanced around 30mm behind the servo leads.
I've been playing with my Skywalker FPV plane last summer testing the On-Screen Display (or OSD) and FMA Co-pilot. I made a video near Canandaigua Lake in the Finger Lakes of Upstate NY. The two planes flying below me were my buddy Lynn's 1/3 scale Cub and Jeff's Easystar with a GoPro attached. The video is crude by most FPV standards as there is a considerable learning curve and I am just a newbie. I made a quick sun block from a $5 Elmers Poster Board for my LCD display. FPV flying can be an addicting aspect of our hobby!
