    Rubbish FPV video on TBS Unify Pro

    Recently added a few parts to an existing FPV build. New motors and 4s to 6s battery jump. All of a sudden my FPV video is rubbish, very low penetration and I got a max of 700ft open field test (sounds far but it’s really not). I’m running a TBS unify pro at 500mw with a TBS triumph pro on the...

    vidSmooth: new, free open source video stabilization software

    Hey guys, I wanted to share an open source project of mine vidSmooth that takes any input video and outputs a stabilized version in high quality mp4/h264 format. I'm just now getting into fpv for fixed wings, and wrote this software for this community to make viewing fpv videos a little less...

    PC 21 Scratch Build

    @FPVAirCombat has inspired me to build a PC 21 for scale cockpit FPV. He does some really nice scale flying and dogfighting with his FMS PC 21, and he posts the videos on this thread. I decided it looked like too much fun to miss out on, so I have designed my own out of balsa! Specs: Wingspan...

    Help! Long range fpv arduplane platform questions

    For the last few months I have been cruising around with my Zohd Nano talon with an fpv setup that got me half a mile away. Over the weekend however, the plane and fpv setup stopped working, after it was run over by a plow. The esc burnt out (I was using the recommended voltage) and it glided...

    Triplane Flying Wing (Super Secret Skunk Works Project)

    If I'm being totally honest I don't know why I built what I did, but I can certainly say why I've never seen it done before. That's because there is literally no practical reason whatsoever to build this. The best reason I can give for why I built it is that nobody told me not to, and if...

    HDMI Out & Building an FPV IRL Streaming Drone

    I'm new to fpv and I'm currently planning on building out a project where I need HDMI video out. What I'm finding is that most things fpv are analog with only HDMI in on goggles, unless you're going with something like lightbridge, but then you're limited to only flying dji gear right? I have a...

    OSD/GPS with home arrow WITHOUT a flight computer?

    Hey all, I just want to fly around manually with a pretty long range. That means I'll need some indicator for which way "home" is. I don't really want to go through all the hassle of learning/wiring/configuring a flight computer, is there a way to accomplish OSD/GPS for FPV without a FC?

    Eachine Wizard x220hv arms but motors wont spin

    So I was flying it yesterday and everything was alright. I didn't crash it and got some great footage. Anyway, today I took it to a park and tried to fly it. I was surprised when it armed and everything, but the motors didn't spin. I went onto betaflight and all the settings are the same...

    FPV Drone Made Of Cardboard

    Hi everybody, I'm a long time watcher of FliteTest, but this is my first time posting here. I wanted to share a project I recently completed - building an FPV freestyle/racing quad from cardboard and epoxy resin. I was very inspired by the FliteTest DIY philosophy and wanted to bring that vibe...

    First design - Sub 250g FPV Wing

    I've built quite a few FT models, RcPowers, various designs from rcgroups, etc. However, other then some tweaking and modifying I've never done my own design. Sub 250g matters depending where you live. Where I live being under 250g means no registration, no license, no logbook of all flights...

    DJI Digital FPV

    Hey guys, I've been thinking about getting into FPV this year ever since I started building foamies. I know that FPV is its own animal and there seems to be a bit of gear tribalism at play on forums, especially eschewing companies like DJI since they have not traditionally been a part of the DIY...

    FT Goblin which flew?

    So I finally got the editing done for this video. I thought I'd share it here for you guys to see. Slight disclaimer I forgot to put in the part where I actually put the googles on my head so I will have that video coming up in the next week as I am currently working on it. If you wouldn't...

    Mini talon wing meets twin boom

    Not really a build thread as I didn't take any pictures. I just wanted to show someone before it self destructs. After crashing my xuav mini talon (definitely not a beginner plane as I discovered) I found Flite test. I haven't even looked at the Mini talon since, so I decided to pinch its wings...
