Imber village and Salisbury Plain FPV'd by quad

Nothing to do with slope soaring, but we decided that today would be the day for Mission Imber( Salisbury Plain). Rob would do long range with his zephyr and I would keep it a bit closer with my Quad that now has been FPV'd up.


Unfortunately weather conditions ( visibility 30 metres ) put pay to his zephyr but my quad with the option of ''return to home'' took alot of the risk out, so it was mission on.






This quad did a brilliant job, the DJI Naza was again totally robust and the Fat shark FPV system performed very well with no range issues









A video of mission. Sunrising, rolling mist and the go pro housing continually misting up have made the quality a bit patchy but the content is great and you wont get to see too many shots like these. Volume up!

  2. Impressive video, but I suggest you read this post on the FPV exemption agreed by the CAA... http://www.bmfa.org/news/2012/09/press-release-first-person-view/
