Skywalker, Tricopter, Quad, Bixler, Swift II and a Crawler :D

The Tricopter was the 1st one I went FPV with (parts used for other things)
The Quadcopter was used for FPV but now I only use it for LOS aerial video
The Skywalker is a very good platform with loads of storage
The Bixler is my current build that is going to be a testbed for Arduplane with waypoint navigation (oilpan)
The Swift II is a small fun flying wing (only flew FPV 3 times with it)
The crawler is for fun...pretty pointless going FPV as you cannot see rocks or things.

The SW has its own gear installed and the others are shifted about...
I used a small camera on them but it was not good, will use a GoPro instead (more testing) and if it is not OK I will add the same camera as I have on the SW. I have a 5.8Ghz video and simpleOSD for testings and they are mounted close together like a pod

Have two at the moment. Mine is the Bixler with Remzibi OSD and my son is using the TekSumo also with the Remzibi. I've just got my hands on the NOVA OSD and I'll try that out soon. My next FPV Model will be a Wing followed by a Quad or a Hex.

The only problem with the quad or hex is that THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE. Anyone have any leads where I can get a cheap RTF or ARF tri, quad, or hex?
