I know videos No. 2 and 4. They are among my favourites. BTW I didn't know that was you flying on these videos. Now I recognize the foamy plane.
I've just watched video No. 1 (brume) and it is also great. How early in the morning was that? Great vids

Between around 7:30 and 8:30 ;)

BTW, that's a pretty rare condition here. Haven't seen it again since then, it's really only happening in fall.

The video made at Bromont golf club.

For those who have a lower speed connection, I re-encoded a smaller version:

BTW, 1200 downlads in less than 3 days, well done ;)

That's now 2400, 30Gb transferred ;)

BTW, here's a new video too, me flying just in front of where I live (the tall building next to the motorway). I don't like this place, those buildings and the associated networks and multipath give me a hard time. It's good fun when you find THE appropriate RX antenna position though :)
I think that was the first time I tried flying FPV while standing, plus with a different set of goggles I had to test (that was actually the original purpose of the flight. Turned out to give a very nice scenery too!)

Video (26Mb)

Good video, I should try this, flying next to tall building, it look cool.
You fly oftenly when the sun came down, I'm not able to do that, the I-glasses are too dark, I see nothing on the ground, same thing when it's cloudy. So your google should be brighter than mine.

Cool, have you tried to take off from the roof? You'd get wide area coverage by standing on top of the building.
I guess a helper on the ground can land the plane if there is not enough space on top of the building.

Hehe, no, let's say "not yet"... I actually have a copy of the key to there :rolleyes:

What refrains me is the motorway. I wouldn't want something to go wrong and my plane to crash on there, with the consequences you can easily imagine... That's also a reason why I usually don't fly there anymore, unless maybe if there's really zero wind.

On this flight, I got a long (~2sec) R/C dropout just over it. I can tell you my blood made a few turns on that one... :blink:

Vrflyer, don't you have a brightness setting on your goggles? Just set it very bright, the sky will generally saturate but at least the ground will be light. I usually fly with the same settings all the time though, that is about the same that you see on the videos.

I love flying at sunrise / sunset, these colors are just too beautiful. Midday just looks too usual. Plus, in summer I prefer waiting until the temperature has come down a bit rather than sweat under the hood in the sun ;)

I have only internal trim pot, I adjust them for use under sunlight, I wll not open it to try other setting.

Okay, that explains it... :(

And one more new video. That's my best field around here. Since this was filmed, the nice trees I flew over closely have been cut, and an extension to the swimming pool is being built...

http://www.rctech.ch..._yverdon_05.wmv

That field won't last long anymore, as they want to turn it into a "leisure place" with trees and parks everywhere... :(

It's a very beautifull place, an I think with the modification they will made, it will be even more beautifull. You need only five feet square for takeoff and landing with this plane :)

Here's an more recent FPV video with a cheap chinese-made Pitts, at the same location:
http://www.rctech.ch...erdon_04.06.wmv
These biplanes give a really nice view!

I was having quite a lot of R/C glitches, even when close and with a receiver that usually works very well. I guess the no-name motor/controller have their role to play here...

Yes, that will certainly be nice to see. I was actually thinking more about standard flying than FPV. We've spent quite a few afternoons with friends at this place, with gliders and sandow, helis, ... and using the public barbecue by the lake at the end of the day :lol:

Beautifull again. We see the transformation they made, it will be nice. Anyway, with your planes, you need a feild the size of a stamp to take-off :)

Those of you who frequent rcgroups might have already seen these, but those who don't... enjoy!

SlowstickInTheClouds

Low Level Givrins

I should warn everyone that they are fairly big, but quality isn't bad.

Equipment used was a slowstick, airwave Tx, and DIY airwave Rx. Antennas were a 17.5dBi 'Boxkite Yagi', and an 8dBi patch.
