Al, In your quad setup, you're flying your GoPro naked, but with some kind of protective cover over the lens...can you tell me what that protective cover is? Also, it looks like you're using the mount for the ReadymadeRC camera that Readymade ships with the video camera. Is that mount working well for you?

kjon12,

Like Hans said, it's the LayerLens from FPV Manuals. The mount for the RMRC-540 cam works well, camera tilt is adjustable. Very nice FPV cam!

Thanks guys. I bought one of the LayerLens jobbies and will give it a try. I also got one of the ReadyMadeRC 620 line ccd cameras for fpv. I hope to get it all mounted this weekend on. Hoverthings 450 with a Naza controller.

Very nice quad Al.

I've been in rc helis for 9 years now. Love thowing my helis around. To be honest while I still love my helis...its getting a little dull. Then I saw this post then some of your flying vids. Then I dug a little deeper and saw Juz70 flying vids..then started reading on rcgroups...then the rest is history.

This has totally sparked my interest again..that is FPV. While being totally green to it and quads I'm taking the dive head first. I'm on the list for the FPV frame from hoverthings and have motors coming. Thats were I'm at now. Trying to find a OP CC board but if I cant find one I'll be ordering the Naza. Going to get the thing built, fly it, then take the dive into buying FPV equipment.

So..I owe it all to you Al.

Maidened my DJI450 with NAZA Thursday. What a ball. I'm hooked!

kjon12, sounds great man. Let us know how everything works out!

bl8zn, you can thank juz. I wanted to try FPV 2-3 years ago when I first started watching RCExplorer's videos, but never followed through. Then juz70 started posting his incredible flights and that finally pushed me over the edge. I'm still very much into flying my helis, but I'm also enjoying FPV every bit as much.

jackheli, CONGRATS man, now you know! Post videos!

I told Al a couple months ago that once I started doing multirotors and FPV, I pretty much ignored everything else. Seems like others have the same experience once they start. It's pretty much the most addicting thing I've ever done.

I hope that's not strictly true, as I have been building my hangar steadily over the winter and have several new planes and helis to fly this year! That being said, I've now got my quad all rigged up with my fpv gear and can't wait to give it a go. Unfortunately its raining steadily outside and supposed to keep it up for several days...that's spring in Seattle!

Finally got my VC-450 with a ReadyMadeRC 620 CCD TV cam, 5.8G Vtx, FatShark Aviator goggles, and a GoPro Hero2 in the air. Sure is fun! It was a little unnerving getting it up off the ground with the goggles on, but I made it up and back down 3 or 4 times without any major mishaps. I need some practice, though, before I start swooping around in the skies.

I'm not crazy about the video out of the GoPro, at the moment. There's solid bright cloud cover here in Seattle, and my videos are way overexposed. Searching the internet, it sounds like this is a common problem. Anybody out there using polarizing filters?

Kjon12, congrats man! Post your flights if you can.

phillips942, mine is pretty stout as well, comes in at ~1420 grams. The NTMs have a ton of power, even with 8" props. Definitely more than enough power to have fun with, flips and rolls with all of the FPV gear are pretty manageable. Yeah, I think I waited almost two months for the adapters to get back in stock.

No good with the prop adapters. The mounting screws were to small and to make them work I would need to drill them out and blah blah blah blah. Didn't want to go through all that so took a ride to the LHS and came up with this. I'll returning the other adapters tomorrow.

Gaui prop adapter from the 330x and 1/8" wheel collars. Take the C clip off the motor shaft. Remove the set screw which holds the shaft in place. Push shaft so it is longer on the prop side while leaving enough on the mounting side for the collar. Mount collar. Push up on collar to take out any play and set set screw. Now you can mount the adapter and your good to go. I needed to grind down the set screw on the collar a little as it rubbed on the motor screws a bit but all is well.

Damn thanks for the quick turn-around. I cancelled my order as soon as i saw this post. I guess I'm back on the waiting game. If anyone knows of an equally capable motor (thats available ) please provide some info.

Sucks about the prop adapters. When they do come in, buy spares! I know I will.

Hey phillips942, weather has been kind of crappy the last month or so. Last weekend wasn't too bad, though, today has been rain and wind. I would like to make another video, unfortunately I haven't been able to find a nice place to fly at and film locally. Let's see some pics! Always good to share and see different people's setups.
