    Great vids! I love that blade encounter Aaron, wow!!

    Here is mine, pretty boring compared to these, but this was I think my 2nd ever FPV flight, I had two cameras on, smushed my skew planar rx antenna taking it out of the truck but I bent it somewhat back in shape and used it anyway, not noticing one joint had broken, then forgot to set the Eagle Eyes on diversity so I wasn't even using the bi-quad and video started blacking out at about 1:55 when I was out over the water. By this time the plane was a dot in the sky and being very inexperienced at this I went into complete dumb thumb mode trying to fly it LOS. There was NO way I could tell which way it was going and I had visions of all my new expensive gear hitting the drink. I finally calmed down enough at about 2:20 and started watching the screen again, but it was a LONG 25 seconds, let me tell you! The gopro footage makes it look I was pretty high, but the Zi8 footage is a little more accurate on how close I was getting to the water.

    Then I almost clip a light standard coming in, but that was minor, at least my gear would have been recoverable.

    Brown Pants Experience. Reciever started locking me out repeatedly, until it eventually caused a crash. On land, thank-god.
    Get me a Crocodile sandwich. And make it snappy.

    this was 2.4ghz video, 72mhz corona. I used a step-up regulator (12v buck converter) for the video gear. The buck converter went wild, and started outputting RF garbage and overloaded the reciever with interference. As soon as I removed the converter, i was back to normal.

    Was it the one everyone uses from ebay? Was it properly cooled? Was it V1 or V2?

    I ask this because it is prob the one I use. I had trouble with the V1s overheating on 3s. The V2s seem maybe better, plus I have tried to keep them in the cool. The one on my wing will even have a heatsink just to be sure.

    I think this whole flight qualifies as brown pants. I tried to knock bottles off a park bench at full throttle. I think I'm an adrenaline junkie. All of my flights are like this...

    If it is broken, fix it. if it isn't broken, I'll soon fix that.
