As usual, the video here is recorded with a Gopro! and we can see the camera used at the bottom right used to pilot!

Really nice!

Wow. They're quite amazing.

I'm to lazy to do the research right now, so is there a forum thread on which FPV gear is the best mix of value/performance right now? Any tips from the non-FPV-noobs for easy FPV?

He flew through that crane at 1.30!!

I picked up a GoPro last week and really impressed with the quality of the video. How do you get the connection out for the FPV while it's in the waterproof case? Drill a hole?

You either drill a hole, or they make a case with cutouts for the A/V ports. It's 40 bucks though....

see this one, just amazing and somehow crazy :)

I guess I'll buy such a slowfly ritewing and start FPV flying ^^

I wonder if they're doing this legally though. The first minute of the Prague video was shot in LK R9 PRAHA (a RESTRICTED airspace) and some shots of the Prague Castle are very likely shot from within LK P1 HRAD (a PROHIBITED airspace, government building). Both of those are no fly zones and every cubic inch above Prague is controlled airspace (IATA:PRG is less than 5 nmi from there).

It takes months to get cleared by the CAA for something like this. We had to cut through 5 months of red tape to get a permission to launch an unmanned balloon.

of course it was not legal :D

These guys buzzed the Statue of Liberty once. I think they operate under the idea that it's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission!
