As we already explained in an earlier posting, it is generally a good idea to use a CCTV camera instead of the GoPro live out when flying FPV. Only recently, we had several GoPro hang-ups due to a damaged SD-Card, which would have left us with a blank screen in our goggles 😉
So if you are starting with FPV or are just looking for a nice new cam, there are countless products available. After trying a few different ones we ended up with three cams, ranging from 17$ to 179$ (420TVL Sony CCD, 600TVL Sony SUPER HAD II, TBS69) and made a small video to show you how each of these little cams performs in action. These are the cams that we recommend, depending on how much money you are planning to invest.
This will be the last video that is recorded with the Sony Bloggy for now.
New videos will be recorded with the GoPro HD but the weather is not very good at the moment. We hope to finish a new Episode this weekend.

So you got your new GoPro Hero HD camera, mount it to your flying wing and the first thing that comes to your mind is: “Oh damn, that looks pretty fragile.” At least that was my experience a few days ago. Especially the exposed lense got me worried. I could have used the supplied polycarbonate housing but its almost the same weight as tho GoPro itself. So i decided to start a little DIY project and here is what i came up with:
I simply unscrewed the lense protection from the polycarbonate housing and screwed it to a 3mm plywood plate. The whole thing is hold together by two rubber bands. I hope that this will prove to be enough to protect the lense from being damaged even in some rough landings 😉 Here is how it looks like when its mounted on the wing:
Maybe you remember that place.
Leo wasn’t there before, so we decided to go there and do some chasing-action.
I like this song a lot 🙂
