RE: Supplement Code 550

Well perhaps I wasn't clear in Post #9 and Post #16, so I'll try this again..

RE: Supplement Code 550

You hit the nail on the head here. We didn't want FPV to fall under the same ruling as UAS/UAV's. We were very clear about FPV vs UAS. There are products that will return your FPV craft back to the...

RE: Supplement Code 550

Well as Gary pointed out in one of the threads

RE: Supplement Code 550

No actually the FPV Community on RCG had a debate and voted on a couple numbers. If you'd like to muddle through the thread I'm sure I can dig it up. Trust me it was a messy debate. Many argued that...

RE: Supplement Code 550

I agree with Brad. Many people dream of flying but can't afford the cost associated with it. Model aircraft is an affordable way of becoming a pilot. Putting FPV gear into the plane brings them one...

RE: first person video piloting... anybody else heard of it?

And the FPV'ers can point out the foolishness of your 'logic'. The fact is we can go around and around about this. When we wake up tomorrow the technology will still be here. I think everyone here...

RE: first person video piloting... anybody else heard of it?

RE: first person video piloting... anybody else heard of it?

There are 900mhz video TX's sold by a couple places that can operate in the 900mhz band. These TX's won't interfere with 2.4ghz RC control of your plane. The 500mw systems will suit most peoples...

RE: first person video piloting... anybody else heard of it?
