Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
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 ~~

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

My very first FPV, ever

Here, for the record, is my very first FPV flight ever.  Flown on an Alien 450 quad with Naza M Lite flight controller and using a brand new Fat Shark Attitude kit with a GoPro Hero Black 3 camera. 

I am knocked sideways by the experience that has exceeded what I had expected and hoped it would be.  As a first venture into the air with FPV goggles it was extraordinary. 

There is some sorting out to do with vibration causing the jello effect. I can live with that for now, but it will have to go. 

I did three more successive flights after this one, each got better as I gained the experience, skill and confidence of flying in this "new world". 

FPV truly is an amazing feeling.

Glad you like them hands0n!  What antenna';s are you using?  I bought a pair of Spyronet';s soon after buying them, as I found I was soon out of range with the supplied RD';s.  You may also want to get yourself a brushless gimbal, it';d take care of that jello.
Well done anyhow for a successful first venture.

Nicely done :cool:

FPVing changes the hobby completely.  I used to look for open spaces to fly, now I look for spaces with stuff in the way to fly around.

Excellent! No problem flying nose in now  :rofl:
Looks like JAB1a will have some competition soon  ~~  ~~  ~~

@flybywire - Thanks mate.  I';m using the stock rubber ducks right now. Ordered a set of skew planar from @gav on this forum. They get rave reviews.   I have a gimbal bought for my birthday, but haven';t set it up yet.  I need a set of landing legs for the Alien 450 so I can sling the gimbal underneath. So I';m not terribly fussed about the jello at the moment.

Gawd, I can feel some more expense coming on  ::) ::)

Well done, it';s a great feeling flying FPV, you just want to fly further, higher and lower. Welcome to the best form of RC flying IMo...

Hands0n

Just for the record, and apologies to anyone I';m boring to death with ... here are the other three FPV videos that I shot on that life';s milestone of a day  :smiley: 

Flight No. 2
I';d just got off the ground when a local friendly pulled up in his car to have a chat with me about what I was doing. One can';t be impolite so I chatted while the quad loitered  ::)




Flight No. 3
In this one I tried to get a bit of range out of the VTX, but I';m flying with the stock rubber ducks that come with the Fat Shark kit so that didn';t go quite so well.  I';ve a set of skew planar (thanks Gav) for the next outing.  ~~




Flight No. 4
This one I';m just pushing my own limits a bit, the video in the goggles was dark so I felt constrained in what I could attempt. But the object of the day was just to get into the game without a disaster.




As they say on Loonie Tunes ... Thats all folks  :laugh:

Excellent first go at FPV...all very calm and smooth moves, mine was a bit more up and down on my first flight full FPV  :cool:

Amazing flight time in your first video 11+mins in the air, what Lipo';s are you using?

Keep them coming mate  ~~

Hands0n

Thanks mate, it sure is addictive.  Loved it.  The day was ideal, the air was completely still, not even a perceptible breeze!   The FPV gods were with me that day  :smiley:

I was flying the Naza M Lite which is a doddle in GPS Atti mode.

I';m not sure about that 11 minutes! The camera never lies, of course, and that is completely unedited footage.  I was flying a Turnigy 2200mAh 3S battery - as were the other three flights that just about managed 7 minutes each (my norm).  I was flying very gently, so maybe that eked out a few more minutes. I';m really not sure otherwise.  Good though, innit  ::)
