Thanks Hans! Not aiming for the babies quite yet, but I'll sure try :P
Would love to meet up in 2013!
Happy Newyears Dave! May all your fpv-goals be reached, have plenty baby's with your fiance and if all my 2013 plans come together, hopefully we shake hands in 2013
I had to cut my message into parts as they where too long :P
The biggest challenge with every airframe, being multirotor or plane, is the roll-compensation. My producerbuddy said (and i agree completely as a photographer) that a tilted horizon is just not acceptable for quality video.
So in short: I fly a quad for FPV, but i also did a few scratchbuilt planes LOS to get the hang of it. To be fair though, i have flown FPV for only 3~4 flights now Weather is pretty bad (rain & wind) during winter overhere.
Currently i fly a quadcopter for FPV. I am looking at other platforms too as i have the idea that for the best videofootage, different airframes are needed to get the best material. I got in this FPV-game because a friend of mine who is a producer/filmmaker needed a flying platform to shoot some scenes in the beautiful nature of Norway for a musicvideo he was working on. For this particular musicvideo i didn't had the skills or gear, but we decided i would follow the route to succes for the upcoming musicvideo.
Sometimes i forward some video's i see on FPVLab and we go over them, discussing the good- and the bad parts and one thing we agree on, is that for different styles of shooting, different airframes are needed. Atm we don't thing a multirotor is the best one-in-all camera platform. So i am looking at planes to see what can be done with them.
Hey Hans, what FPV rig do you fly most... a plane or multi? -Dave
Dave! How are you doing? Haven't seen any awesome posts of you lately? Is everything OK?
