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

Just fixed a busted SMA connector on my TBS unity pigtail, it suffered badly in a recent crash and split in two, nothing a touch of the soldering iron couldn't fix  :D

Bodget (Bodged/Budget) FPV Helm made from bits lying around in the house:

Petzl Climbing Helmet
Wooden BBQ Skewers
7inch Monitor that does not Blue screen
Gav';s 5.8 Skew Planar';s
Phone case box that just happened to fit the monitor
Hmmmm Gaffa tape.
Can of beer in a Maharishi "Bag" as a counterweight

Oh and spot the Ghost Mantis....

And yes-Very Happy. I have put some shades on the sides of the LCD that flap up if need be and there is space to look through - like a sunroof- I feel more confident being able to flit between LOS and the screen in a pinch.

I was not really expecting it to work so well seeing as we jury rigged it after a few beers... :beer2:

The video has been gone through the You tube anti shake machine which works in places but not in others,
I am really going to start looking into a better way to edit the footage...
Thanks for checking it out!


flybywire

Nice one.  Welcome to the ';addiction';!  How about some pics of your multi?  Where was it filmed?  Scotland?
Keep it up.

Great stuff.
Looks like have it all sorted out now. We will have to do some formation FPV - what could possibly go wrong.

Think I spotted a few bunnies in that vid.

DarrellW

Nice vid! I thought I recognised it - it';s the Powderham folly isn';t it?
Been around that area many times on holiday, the Exe estuary is a beautiful area!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

That looks like a great flying location and a good flight too for one of your first!

The FPV hat looks good but could possibly be improved if the sticks holding the screen were not as droopy.

I used this stuff;

http://www.goodluckbuy.com/diy-2pcs-22mmx20mmx400mm-carbon-fiber-tube-for-professional-fpv-quadcopter-hexacopter-octa-.html

Cheap carbon fibre bought directly from china usually turns out to be fibreglass wrapped in a thin layer of carbon to make it look pretty. I am pretty sure that';s what this is. I wouldn';t use it to build a quadcopter but it works great on my FPV hat.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

XamaX

Thanks man, I understand about the droop-but it does lend itself to having a way to peek out if needed, being a learner- I like the way it keeps me grounded as so to say.
Obviously it will not have much shelf life in its current form so I will be looking to upgrade the materials in due course - thanks for the heads up with the link.
When I literally first started researching FPV Flying, I came across a photo of your first setup and nearly died laughing thinking it was a joke...

Now I am the laughing stock of my friends...
Where will this end? :help:
