With today's advancing wireless video technology becoming more and more accessible in price terms, one part of the RC hobby is gaining in popularity every day with one particular airframe becoming almost standard, Skywalker FPV.
Currently one of the best value-for-money controller boards with high quality sensors, this version of board, AIOP V2.0 all in one pro Flight Controller, comes with reinforced USB connector which proved to be the weak point and works with MultiWii, MegaPirate, ArduPlane and ArduCopter.
If you were satisfied with Cyclops Storm OSD as I was, news about new product, Cyclops Tornado OSD, from the same manufacturer will make you smile. Whats so special about Cyclops Tornado OSD you say. Well, if its anything like Storm OSD, we can expect neatly packaged OSD with everything one FPV enthusiast might need, including throttle control.
Recipe for successfull FPV is good video link, and there is no such with bad antennas. Most of the stock antennas we are getting with the video transmitters and receivers are usually totally out of tune and building your own requires certain tools. One important tool that is frequently mentioned on forums is spectrum analyzer but so far it was too expensive and few have them, but not anymore. Solution is RTL-SDR Spectrum Analyzer.
Most will agree that FPV is all about immersion and there is no better immersion than with FPV goggles. When talking about FPV goggles, FatShark is first choice of many FPV pilots. There are several different Headsets offered by FatShark and one of those are FatShark AttitudeSD. But how does it compare to the others?
Although it's not the case today, few years ago headplay 800 x 600 fpv goggles were one of the two mainstream options of goggles for FPV with FatShark's being the second. One can find a lot of discussion on topic which one are suited best but both have their pros and cons.
