FPV AIR COMBAT POSSIBLE? Ideas....

Recommended Posts

Hi.

The other day I was thinkg about the possibility of carry a co-pilot aboard. Amazing. The copilot with the rear view? More amazing!

And... What about if I have a big electric airplane, for example B17 with 4 copilot?

I would be increible! To see the others cams moving and appearing in the fuselage. CREW: 5 FPVs: 1 pilot and 4 gunners.

A master reciver with 14 channels ( 6 to the pilot and 8 to the gunners).

6 Tx too? 1 main antena TX? 1 main antena rx? 5 recivers?

I am dreaming with a low energy laser to do fights with other models. A system with sensor that detect the laser shoot. We can use the Laser Tag Game system ( very, very cheap cheap ( 30 u$S + or -)

I think that would be possible with low weight and low energy.

To flight in "scuadrom" too? :rolleyes:

Well, the FPV is a dream comes true. Virtual fights and acrobatics scuadroms would be possible?

To fly with "crew" would be amazing. And the cost too!! So, like a real team, all the crew must aport money and time to the projet. In the future maybe appears tournaments!

Hi Sergio,

I mentioned something similar right after you made your first video.

Then Ozflyer mentioned they make a great little laser tag unit for RC planes. Once you've been hit, the device shuts down your motor for a short while but you still have control of your plane.

Still, like I mentioned before take apart a laser tag unit is a good idea, then your microphone can pick up the noise when you get hit right?

I think it would have to be a pretty big plane to have all the radio gear and servos + extra batteries onboard.. plus if you put SCM's on there thats even more.. Would be about the most awesome thing thats R/C in the air though :)

I am starting with electric car first and a cheap camera equipment.

Cars are more easy to make experiments with the cam were I live, since there is not much open field for flying planes and a lot of interference. Also, there are some guys driving nitros around, but their cars cost about more than $700 each one. :(

I hope some day to have people racing on cams here with some sponsorship. The traditional way of driving requires to have a special track. With the cam you can use any park as driveway to compete.

I still think hacking up the sonic combat module is going to be the best way to do it :) I wouldnt put in the engine cut off though, a big expensive plane like that with engines shut down would work out very expensive very quickly hehe

This is one, but they removed the price tag and has no servos.

Info site about robots and robo-fights

http://www.robots-dreams.com/hacks/index.html

This kit comes with six servos for $300 without upgrades. They also have Rovonova that uses 16 servos, but is more expensive.

You can use the X-Port technology made by Hobbyzone. They made a module that can be attach on their Firebird plane. "can transform an airplane into a long-range bomber, a master aerial combat machine, or an illuminated flyer on a calm night".

And it's not expensive look at here for detail . http://www.horizonhobby.com/Articles/Artic...?ArticleID=1494
