Default Parkzone Ultra Micro T-28 Trojan FPV - Rudder severed mid-flight :(

Hey just wanted to share this vid I made today, thought it was pretty funny at the end

Using a 5.8ghz 4gram camera/video transmitter module from fpvhobby.com
On the ground I have 2 x 5.8ghz RX modules through a diversity video switcher

I went out today in some crazy wind and flew but I forgot to take the minidv cassette
Those lines really suck tho, going to move the camera up higher tonight.

about how much did this whole set up weigh? And how much did your set up cost? Ive been wanting to do an FPV Trojan since the thing came out but weight and cost are my biggest concerns. Awesome job by the way!!! You're pretty good at threading the needle! :-)

Hey
Sorry missed ur msg..

I dont have scales but at my mates the airframe without lipos was 40grams (tennis ball was like 57 :p)
I run a 110mah for the video and a 160 for the motor/esc

Ive moved the camera up to a little boom I made from some dead easystar, no prop in the view now Just need to adjust it a little cause its pointing up too much when I test flew it yesterday..

Cost was...
Remote system
$42 for the video tx
$75 for the micro cam
some servo wire from HK which I use all the time...
$3 for a 1s battery plug from the local hobby shop

Base system
$25 x 2 for the video receiver (which come with antennas)
$2 for the RCA outputs
$15 Turnigy "15A" BEC

I already had
$160 Oracle video diversity splitter
$400 video goggles
$150 minidv video recorder
plug some rca leads and a couple of 3cell lipo's to run everything

fpvhobby.com is where its at :p
