Night Fly Oct 21, and New Toys!

Don’t forget we have a Night Fly this coming Friday Oct 21! Come early and fly before dark too!

I decided to try something new, and purchased a head tracker device for my DJI FPV goggles, and also a servo-driven camera gimbal. I installed it in my Flex Innovations RV-8, and took it for its first outing last weekend. Wednesday’s weather was too good to pass up, so I flew it again and this time remembered to press ‘record’ before takeoff! What you see below is really boring, but I’m just getting a feel for how to fly around and land smoothly with FPV. Being able to look around really helps with orientation and lining up with the runway! At first it’s a bit vertigo-inducing when you turn your head to look, but that quickly passes. It’s pretty darn cool.
