Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Just had a thought, even with all the crashing I've done, I haven't bought any replacement props in over a year ~~

Hi guys heres a few pic of my first try at an FPV setup.

SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!


Very nice - that looks like a serious bit of kit.

I'll be asking you lots of questions when i finally get around to trying FPV, hopefully in the next month or two.

What FC is recommended for FPV? Would you fly in acro or attitude mode? I have an FPV quad but not really flown it for any length of time....really should try and get into it, but I feel like I am starting to learn to fly from scratch again.

I had exactly the same experience as yourself. Also my quadcopter was vibrating pretty badly which made flying and seeing even trickier.

I think i managed about 5 seconds flight from the screen then had to look back at the quadcopter again LOS.

I've almost got my new slightly larger quadcopter flying ok so I'm going to be trying again in a few weeks hopefully.

You wouldn't be able to keep up in acro mode I suspect.  I've used KK 5.5 boards and their hobbyking clones for fpv, and now the hobbyking KKV2 which is a great board.

Cheap as chips, but if you wish to spend more money, there is obviously Naza, Wookong, etc etc...

For me I was on a budget but if you've seen some of my fpv video's hope you'll agree the results are pretty good :)

Ive not flown fpv yet but I would think the most stable you can get would be the best option, the naza would be good for this as in atti mode if you let go of the sticks it just sits there, and then there is the return home function too,
then again the naza is a good all rounder but doesn't come cheap  ~~

I am finding flying FPV is defo like starting to learn again.  I am having to go against most thinks I have

With the Naza I fly in atti mode and save GPS for a big oooooohhhhhhhhhh dear moment.

that's a cool looking machine. 

really getting to know your Multirotor flight charactetistics helps a lot for when you fpv on it.  Belt it around, smooth decents, creep around in a slow big circle or circuit is good training I found, sudden turns, full throttle climb outs by Line Of Sight. 
At least you know what's going to happen when you're immersed in the goggles.  hovering with no drift unaided by gps and landings are 2 thing that sap the concentration though lol 

Rappy Freak

Thats what I do when I can get out early mornings, just fly line of sight.  Like you say to see what it does and how it flies.  It all keep the gray matter going lol

I remember my first flight. I paniced took of the goggles and did not know ehre the hell it was. haha
Learned from that pretty quick. a wide open space the bigger the better so you dont have to worry about hitting anything and an area you know well helps.

Look forward to the vids
