  1. FPV Racing Mini Quadcopters Win/Fail

    RC's
    Hi All, Here are some Win and Fail shots from our day racing mini Quadcopters. West Devon saw a group of FPV pilots meet for some excellent FPV Racing of mini Quadcopters, the weather was ideal and the garden a perfect place to setup a track to try and avoid hitting obstacles. We all had so...
  2. FPV Close Proximity Cottage Playground

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is the warm up video for some of the most fun I have had FPV, its very rare I get to spend too long at any one location so its hard to learn the area to get some nice routes. The flight is the first one in that location on the day and I'm just getting warmed up after a long drive...
  3. FPV Spanky flying circles round a DJI Phantom

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is the first flight I have done using the Spanky around another quad, it was a beautiful day for flying apart from the wind but that didn't stop the fun. Its quite clear to see what footage was from our GoPro's compared to the Mobius shots but in its defence I had not balanced the...

  5. FPV Quadcopter Merrivale Quarry 2

    RC's
    Hi All, Here is a revisit to a location I flew when I first started to fly quadcopters back in August 2012. Its a disused quarry on Dartmoor, the stone from this quarry made the Falklands War Memorial at Port Stanley on the Falkland islands. Video and radio signal stayed constant while playing...
  6. Under Current: FPV Quadcopter Crashes in River

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Well I managed to sink the Quadcopter again in the pursuit of the perfect shot lol. This day was one of those days where nothing was going right, I had already hit about 8 objects during my flight due to many factors, going too fast, not knowing the area, bad light but it all came to an...

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is a few FPV flight I got to do after work one day. CamSump and I ventured off to Cotehele in Calstock, Cornwall. Its a beautiful house and grounds but we did not pay to enter the grounds as it was about to close as we arrived. It was very wind on this day which made me nervous...
  8. FPV Quadcopter 'hits' the beach!

    Air
    Hi All, Sorry for the pun in the title but the quad did actually collided with the beach more than once this day. Full cloud cover and a strong breeze didn't stop the fun at Blackpool Sands. A few flights were had before even going near the sea after my last experience where I lost my quad for...

    Hi All, Well what a great start to 2014. Its been a few months since I have been able to fly FPV due to other commitments and terrible weather. The start of the video is the first full FPV flight I had done in good weather since before the new year and I enjoyed every second of it. I had to...
  10. Memories of a sunny day... close proximity FPV

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is a few flights that were never going to be made into a video. On the day the wind had picked up quite a bit so me and CamSump had some FPV fun around this old Prison tower and Norman Castle mound. There is quite a bit of shaking and vibration in this video due to the...
  11. FPV Quadcopter Passing the Time

    RC's
    Hi All, As the cold weather has set in I have not been flying much so I decided to look through some old footage and found this day in the woods where I was just passing time practising some close proximity. Again the video link stayed rock solid even at its longest range in the forest. Best...
  12. JAB1a Fast and close in the forest

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is my first visit to this beautiful forest in Devon. CamSump and I decided to walk along the path and pick spots to fly as we found them. It was a very windy day which was perfect for the shelter of the forest but still gave me a few surprises. Plenty of close proximity flying and...

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is a quick test of my new FPV camera Sony PZ0420. I am testing how it handles light to dark transitions and it performed excellently! Best viewed full screen @720p http://youtu.be/drgHM5jPsPU
  14. FPV Quadcopter Fun In The Ruins

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Such a beautiful day for a quick FPV flight around the ruins of a building sat next to the River Tamar. Some tight spots to fly though but I do like a challenge. Some extreme jello effect at the start but I think that was due to only having about 10% throttle and plummeting to the ground...
  15. GoPro Hero 3 Black edition Now with more Fish

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, The video contains some clips of fish captured on camera while my Quadcopter stayed on the river bed after a crash. The GoPro was only recording for about 10 minutes under the water but managed to get some nice shots. I am so happy with my GoPro, its piece of mind that whatever happens...
  16. FPV Quadcopter Underwater Crash!

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, CamSump and I went to revisit Burrator Reservoir on a beautiful sunny day. My Quadcopter gets two unintentional dunks into fresh water all captured by my GoPro Black in its water proof case. My Quadcopter is not water proofed at all so it was a big risk flying over water at any time...
  17. FPV Quadcopter Checking the Skills Crash

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, I got a chance to revisit Wortha Farm and fun some via FPV. It was a beautiful day but I was haunted by the ever present wind. I got plenty of turbulence coming off the banks of the stream while I was low down which just made it even more fun. There was no damage caused by the crash as...
  18. FPV Quadcopter High speed crash at active Quarry!

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, CamSump and I were lucky enough to get permission to fly around an active Slate Quarry recently which was great fun FPV with all the equipment around. The day ended with a tiny crash that destroyed my quadcopter where as the crash in the video merely shifted my undercarriage a bit...
  19. FPV Quadcopter Norman Castle Tree Conopy Run

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, There is a certain style of flying that when I watch the video I find that I am leaning my head and dodging objects as they fly past the screen. This is my attempt at recreating one of those video's in my own style of flying. The final crash at the end broke two props and 1 motor...
  20. FPV Quadcopter Windy Tree Madness

    General video , photos and Other
    Hi All, Here is a video that was intense to fly, the added factor of the strong gusts between the trees made for some interesting paths and tight squeezes. I loved every second of it. This is my first 1080p video made using the GoPro Hero 3 Black edition, alot of quality was lost when added to...
