Great episode. Been a subscriber to Mikey for a long time now lol. What were you using to film the FPV v3 from the air? It was getting good footage as well. Also, does anyone know what would be a good platform (plane) for me to get some fast FPV footage but still have it fairly smooth and without vibrations, say like 100km/h to 150km/h?

It was a GOPRO either a Hero or Hero 2. I personally have the Hero 2. Check out the link, great camera. I have one of these and they are great. By default, you cannot use it to stream video while recording. You have to hack the firmware, and I am not sure of the exact details. This camera was not designed for FPV from the factory, but it sure does a great job.
