    Or single rotor...

    I fly both but prefer fixed wing for FPV generally speaking. Seems to be more enjoyable for me - funny because LoS I much prefer flying helicopters. Can't beat the convenience of a heli being able to take off and land almost anywhere though.

    I want to make an FPV osprey too one day lol. There's a great osprey kit out there but it's a bit rich for my blood currently.

    You mean the one from Lindinger right?
    Unbelievable how much money they ask for that thing!

    I only have one answer though, Derrick.... It's a PITA!

    Do you have any time off during this week? I'm off Tues-Thurs.

    My wife is always trying to get rid of me. today she told me to put the garbage out. I said to her I already did. She told me to go and keep an eye on it!

    My son and I went searching for it. It was just a few hundred yards around a corner. They guys on the bikes pointed us in one direction, so we went that way. They in turn came down the hill they were on and snatched it, then took off. It was in the opposite direction (according to my FPV-JAPAN).

    I should have just looked at the recording. I knew those guys were there and didn't think they would point me in the wrong direction. The police I talked to confirmed they are bad kids and take pleasure in doing stuff like that.

    Its a shame. Still waiting for it after offering a $100 reward.

    Both (as of this afternoon), fixed wing before that.
    Get out there and give it all you've got, and win just one for the Zipper.

    Both, but I've had maybe 5 multi rotor fpv flights + 3 multi rotors. Multi rotors are fun to fly los so I usually break them before I get a chance to fpv them. Have had way more fixed wing fpv flights.
