    Brosius85 's RC adventures

    hey guys, i think its about time i got a thread to post all my adventures, keep track of where i have been and where i am headed.

    found out about FPV with the FPV NY video, by the time i had realized it was an rc plane with a video link i had ordered a Zeph and an IYF44, and a mismach bunch of hardware i quickly thought would do the job. Being brand new to rc of course 1/2 the hardware was completely wrong and by the time i realized spektrum was a bad idea it was too late.

    within a few weeks i had my IYF ready for the maiden..and i tried to learn to fly.



    by the time i knew how to fly it had bean beat up pretty bad. i still flew it lots and lots (every spare day, 3 or 4 times a week)

    when i was supremely confident in my flying skills 6 months later i decided it was time to build the zephyr. not FPV yet i knew not to rush. (and wanted to save up for a fully blown setup)



    the maiden went ok, i had cg wrong but no dramas, i just wanted more power.

    next thing on the list was a GoPro, this allowed me to practice smooth flying and learn the ins and outs of music selection and video editing, also choosing a good spot to fly from to get sweet videos. came up with some corkers.





    eventually i just bit the bullet and got some fatsharks, a lawmate 24 500mw tx and rx, and an 8db patch. i also changed to 36mhz control and tuned the antenna to 4m ish

    this allowed me to really get what i wanted for all this time, some serious fun in real FPV!!!! i have enjoyed the original z on 3s and have moved on to a 6s Z, i will update here as my adventure continues.

    Those first flights are pure LOL. You seemed to get the hang of it very quickly though. What happened to your hair? Had a prop incident?

    Would be tough learning to fly with a wing like that, you did great and seemed to pick things up rather quick.


    That "FPV Disaster" video was soooooo close dude, holy shit.

    Thank you brosius, this was informative. Looks like I accidently have started down a similar road, in that I ordered inferior equipment. I can't send it back, so will get by until I use up this equipment, or learn to fly the Zii, with the intention of buy the right equipment as time goes by. Besides the Zii & Hacker for my 3S setup, the rest will be a trial. My hope is new people to FPVLAB will not have to go through the pain and expense we have done here. I really didn't have extra cash laying around to throw away, lol.
