I had a great time at our second ever FPV meetup. I flew two locations. The first was hanging out with the group and the second was by myself after everyone left at the water's edge. I swear FPV is like a drug. It's the ultimate therapy for any ailment. I just can't get enough.

I decided to see what the 60FPS hype was all about. I do like it a lot better than 30FPS but what a PAIN!

I first upgraded my SD card to a 64GB (class 10) so the Runcam2 would write the video fast enough within the camera. Then my laptop (although spec'd nicely) choked every time while trying to render the preview of the already compressed .mov files within my editing software. So I researched using separate 'proxy videos' just for the editing process. Then I upgraded my software to the newest version since it had proxy video capabilities built in, only to find out that it still took hours to even render those. So I downloaded 'Handbrake' for free which actually rendered the proxys 10x faster (go figure). Then I experimented with tons of different codecs & settings and figured out how to best streamline this new workflow and put it all together. And even after all of that... YouTube reprocessed my my final output during upload which pixelated it quite a bit (sigh). Next up, figure out how to make the Runcam2's exposure better and stop the sun from blowing out. This hobby is starting to feel a bit like work.

Anyway... so yeah... the video IS now smoother lol.

I just swapped my Mobius for a Runcam 2 and threw on some new HQ 5x4.5x3, glass fiber, bullnose props. This thing really screams now and I doubt I'll have any trouble finding it crashed in weeds.

Thanks to a fantastic video by Furadi (https://youtu.be/V_uRtskzvBI), I was finally able to grasp and successfully tune my PIDs for the first time ever. There'll always be more tweaks but it's a great baseline. And in anticipation of my new insanely fast RX2204-14 2300Kv motors (now in transit), instead of pushing the edge of the limits like I normally do... I decided to refocus instead on keeping it pulled back from the edge and always in complete control.

Wow, what a huge difference some PIDs adjustments and a little restraint can make. Now hurry up with my new motors you sluggish mailman!

After not being able to fly for a couple of weeks, I took my visiting Dad along for a relaxing cruise around a new school. I love being able to share my goggle's live video feed on my mobile and laptop. It's much easier to show people my FPV addiction rather than to try to explain it to them.

After a month and a half of busyness and holidays I got to meet up with my bestist FPV buddy again and we had a blast pushing ourselves. This spot really has the best of everything... fields, trees, water... and in the winter no swarms of campers.

I'm trying to get better at negotiating trees and doing tricks closer to the ground. I probably should have waited until I wasn't also trying out a brand new Runcam2 and a limited amount of expensive-ish new tripleblade props (both of which I LOVE by the way). Now that I have a feel for the area... and didn't smash anything... I'll have to go back again and really push it.

I decided to man up... and angle up. I tilted both of my cameras up about 30 degrees. Now I have to lean forward to better see what's in front of me. The second I do that I have to give it throttle. So... it basically forces me to keep moving fast. I like it!

I had a spectator in a dark car show up but no one got out, so I just kept flying. I always wonder what folks must be thinking when wandering across one of these things unannounced in the wild.

Yeah, these new RX2204-14 2300Kv motors are definitely faster. I spent some time just getting used to the new top end speed. Once it gets its momentum up, it really covers a lot of ground quickly.

After 10 months of flying, I took my little stock motors for one more reminiscent spin. It's funny what once felt SO fast has now become a hindrance. They've been fun... but I've definitely outgrown them. My new RX2204-14 2300Kv motors are due to arrive any minute. I can't wait to get butterflies again from all the extra power.

Story
Tagline
I fly FPV racing quadcopters (or drones via goggles).
Introduction
For the past 20 years my only hobby and creative outlet was my work (web design & animation). In October of 2014 however, I bought a Nano QX on a whim and instantly fell in love with flying quads. A month later I bought a Blade 200QX. A month later (after breaking a LOT of plastic parts) I researched and got a Lumenier QAV250. I had no clue what I was getting myself into. What a wild ride!

Every time I fly my thumbs go numb, I shake from the massive adrenaline dump, and I just smile. From ear to ear. I think I'm forever addicted.

A huge thanks to the folks at GetFPV.com for all the help along the way. And also to the countless jaw-dropping pilots posting your videos... you are TRULY inspiring and make us all want to fly even more. Keep doing what you do best.

Bob couldn't have been nicer. He soldered a ton of tiny little pins onto my drone's flight controller computer in what seemed like mere seconds. And the price was beyond reasonable. I highly recommend Action Electronics and will definitely be going back whenever the need arises again.
