Finally, time for maiden flight

Was -12 degrees C where I live, it’s been a cold christmas so far. Even though I used a special “glove” for RC transmitters, I got really cold after a while. It gets pretty hard to fly as your fingers gets cold and stiff so all in all this flight only lasted for about 10 minutes. Hope you enjoy it, please comment!:) More videos will come soon.

I have taken some more pictures of my current FPV setup, and here they are:

RC Plane flying, a new hobby of mine

Electronics and RC Planes are closely related, and I’m surprised this hasn’t hit me at an even earlier stage.
My current setup is a Bixler plane from Hobbyking, Futaba 10C transmitter and a GoPro Hero 2 videocamera.

These videos are filmed flying LOS (Line Of Sight). However, I am currently converting this plane into a FPV (First Person Video) plane with an additional camera, video transmitter, OSD (On Screen Display) with GPS and Current sensor, GPS tracker etc. Pictures and new videos will be coming shortly :-)

Some flying in my hometown Skien:

These are my first two videos, shot in Fyresdal, Norway:
