had great fun today :)

fpv flight of Doran Beach, CA w/ Y6

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O6LgMGoOHoM

covered about 6 miles in this clip, still had about 6 ~ 10min flight time when I landed but tought i had already pushed my luck :p
Very happy with v3 beta + Y6 setup, I still need a little PID tuning (little woobles while flying fast) but w/ the builtin OSD & menu this is no longer a pain :)

Wauw, thats actually really nice, haha!
I hope to buy some FPV goggles soon, but they are quite expensive :\

@q6600, what FPV goggles are you using? And do you recommend them?

...@q6600, what FPV goggles are you using? And do you recommend them?

I use first gen FatShark, they could be better but do the trick nicely.
I dont have experience with other goggles so I can't really say if I would recommend these over others. I decided on this goggle because it had the largest field of view at the time.

Usually it's the goPro white balance that frustrates me, not the goggle image quality.

Ahh, thats good to know! I assume / hope you have the first GoPro edition?
If i'm lucky i'll receive the GoPro HD Hero2 tomorrow, so i hope the quality is better.

I have tried both, fatshark aviator (1gen) and dominator!

the dominator have a less immersion screen but, they are far better IMO, more crisp image and better color, more comfortable! I recommend the dominator one!

Great results ! ..... What setup/make/model are your video tx/rx and uhf tx/rx please ?? that is a hell of a distance and battery life. If I could get 3 miles in one direction I would be pleased.

Well done..............

Nice, view. So you can get almost 20 minutes of flight out of one battery. Quite impressive.
If the controller and escs could put into an airtight container, and sufficient buoyancy, I bet a crash into water might be less damaging the same crash on land. And of course you'd need a boat.
