  1. Hi Vrflyer Many thanks for your reply Okay i am going to make a start on a basic RC airplane, i am thinking of getting the easystar I want to get these goggles http://www.paramountzone.com/virtualvisionglasses.htm It does not come with a built in gyroscopic head tracker, so i would need to get one. How many miles is the longest coverage transmitter/reciever and colour wireless cam for public use without needing a radio license? Do you think you can please list for me the parts, prices, and websites where i can order all these componets from so i can start building this RC airplane. I ask this of you as you have built several FPV planes and know what your talking about from your experience in RC. Much appreciated Many thanks
  2. Hi guys, I made a thread for some help on how to make an advanced RC helicopter using VR goggles. I would like help on that but i also thought i would build a simple VR RC airplane or helicopter. Could you tell me what i would need i would like to uses this visor for all my projects, It seems to be the best value for money it is the z800 3d visor, you can view specs here www.3dvisor.com for $550 you get a gyroscopic 3d tracker 6DOF but runs by default in 3DOF has a microphone, and speakers, and is sterescopic 3d which is cool so i can play it on the PC with games, so i get to use it for the best of both worlds. I was browsing RC hobby shops and could not believe that the easystar only costs $59 What else would i need to get into the air? I have never flown RC's before Any help much appreciated Many thanks
  3. Hi guys, I am looking to build a VR RC helicopter I have a few questions Can you tell me what is the distance that a wireless colour cam can cover while being sent to video goggles and using head tracking? Also do you know how long a RC electric helicopter can stay in the air for? Also what is the maximum altitude it can fly? The maximum speed for an electric helicopter and petrol helicopter? Any help much appreciated Many thanks
  4. Hi eickst Thanks for the reply Maybe this is too ambitious of a project but i wouldn't mind doing it if it's possible? Would you know how much it would cost?
  5. Hi guys, After seeing these RC helicopters streaming the live video to a Virtual reality goggle it got me thinking on an awesome project. At this point i have not really given any thought to a budget but would like to see if i can get your views and price on how much this is going to cost. My idea is to have a RC helicopter either petrol or electric operated, have a flight time of 30 minutes+, have a on board cockpit colour high quality camera which moves via head movements through a VR HMD like this one www.3dvisor.com This HMD from the above link has a microphone built in and earbuds, and has a built in 6DOF head tracker, which by default runs at 3 degrees of freedom but it can be programmed to use all six degrees of freedom via the software development kit which can be downloded at their site, for $550 you get all this plus a 800x600 OLED display. And it's stereoscopic 3d. Maybe it's possible to run this through a PC and take each frame of video and convert it into 3D in real time to give a real immersion of being in a coockpit of a helicopter or airplane. The only problem is that this HMD has only PC connections but it there is a video conversion box you can buy which allows you to connect it to any source, i think that's priced at $200 but i have tried one of these and i tell you it's better than the iglasses, so i will be using this for my UAV project. To be able to fly up to a big altitude if that's possible, what is the highest atlitude possible? to be able to fly up to 10 mile radius or more if possible Have a tracker on board so in case the helicopter crashes i can track it's where abouts through a portable display. I would want a Heads up display giving me altitude, speed, outside temeprature, and gps map coordinates sent into the view of my head mounted display (HMD) want the helicopter to be fast, able to perfrom stunts, and have a smoke trail to have the airwolf shell be small have an external microphone on board so people can speak in to the microphone and i would be able to hear what they say through the speakers in the Headmounted display and i want to be able to use the microhpine in the head mounted dispaly to speak and i want people to hear what i am saying thorugh a speaker built into the helicopter Also having the microphone will making flying more realistic as i can hear the engine of the helicopter. Then i would like an onboard 640x480 camera that records to a hard disc in mpeg 4 at 30 frames per second I would like the helicopter to fly using a joystick in my right hand and in my left hand a thrust stick to increase and decrease speed. is anything like this possible? or at least is it possible if i drop the size of the distance that i mentioned above? Any help much appreciated Many many thanks
