not sure on the ant.

7" 5.8ghz monitor
some sort of DVR

as for the flight controller.I am tossing around the Pixhawk, Naze Lite, KK2.7... or something else. No autonomous flight, unless the chics start lying out nekkid in the hood.
I hink an OSD is a must have too.
Gotta find a mid sized Pelican for the video stuff.Got an idea for a ground station.

This is another f'n $500...so I am still thinking.

Sounds like you have it figured out. After flying the naza, I like the pixhawk better because of the setup, open source, and super stable flight. Pixhawk also comes stock with autonomous flight if you even choose to use it for less than naza..

Hears another video I took following my son playing at the beach. I bought a FPV package but it was damaged so this is trying to judge camera angles from the ground. I need work on my Pirouettes but that why I making the vids to hone my skills.

What FPV sys did you attempt to buy?


I am looking at maybe finding a GoPro 3 to use as FPV, but I hear they are a bit slow on the latency.

Outside of that, I found a decent deal on a Fatshark Attitude V2.

Now that I have both birds flying right, I need FPV to tie it all in.

I did mount my Sony action cam on the bottom of the V1. It does good enough.
I will see if I can get some video tomorrow, going to ride some single track, and may just chase a bike or two with the cam

I do need to find a good editor that will flip the vid, had to mount the Sony upside down

3D Robotics makes a nice FPV package for $300 that has everything. Black pearl dual antenna, 8ch screen with a ribbon connector that plugs right into the gopro. I couldn't build one for that price.

I plan on bringing one this weekend. I may end up using it, but will NOT be flying it over a HOT track. Maybe on the infield.

I have a Sony 700TVL CCD WDR mini cam, Immersion 600mw 5.8Ghz vTx, and Fatshark goggles inbound. Should be FPV'ing sometime around Noon on Saturday.



Almost ready to do some recording of murdercycles around a track.

Just have to get a pair of good antennas and a DVR or a deal on a GoPro.

ETA:
I did manage to get my Sony Action cam mounted and working on the filming bird. Found some warez to flip the vid right side up. Pretty freakin' cool! I may post it from work today if I get time. I have to go south to one of our sites and do a training session and then I may take the bird out to take some pix.
