Cool High altitude Selfie cam stick in action and cockpit flight on FPV planes.

Hi guys, just sharing weird way to record self portrait selfie flight video while flying an FPV plane above the clouds and everywhere. Cool and epic yet simple to setup. So below are some videos of my scale beautiful fixed wing FPV flight with 'selfie stick' beside the wings.

Are you in the US? How do you maintain line of sight above the clouds?

John, he obviously doesn't give a damn about safety as long as he can have his "fun".

Not in the US, this airspace sanction for flying technology development. Lots of R/C industry and drone company especially from china come and setup in this place. Thats why some western company went to east side (asia). That why you see lots of crowds flying in this area if you follow me from social media for many years. Its a heaven for hobbyist. We're few clicks from where you get your hobby equipments and manufacturer/contractors.

This is how i fitted the DIY 'Selfie cam" stick on the right side of the P-51D Mustang and also similarly to my other FPV planes. Its made out from 808 #16 HD Key chain with extended wire lens adapter (lens =120 degree FOV) and placed the circuit boards on the landing gear to keep the CG low. The selfie camera setup weight is about 10grams. Attached are the photos of my setup.
