FPV Slope Soaring Videos
#1
I've been doing FPV slope soaring on-and-off since 2012, after having initially been interested in FPV as far back as 2007.

I've got some cool aerobatic stuff in the works, but first I'm getting comfortable with the tech involved in a more sedate, low-intensity platform... the Parkzone Radian ROFL

It's actually a darn good slope glider, and I enjoy flying it quite a bit.

Here are some vids I've made over the years.

Back at it in 2017

Awesome videos!!  I watched the 2017 ones first.  (I saw you "cheat" there back in 2012...) Wink

Beautiful spot too - thanks!  Thumbs Up

Thanks guys. Just got my pan-and-tilt rig going, with headtracking. Switched to a Runcam Micro Swift 2, but haven't dialed it in yet (it's just straight out of the box).



Pan-and-tilt with headtracking makes a world of difference from slope soaring FPV. It's super fun!

Next up, I'm going to see about getting this rig installed on a higher performance, aerobatic airframe. Should be exciting Smile

My first FPV flight with the Dream-Flight Ahi aerobatics glider. It was rad!

One of my better flights from my first day flying FPV VTPR slope aerobatics.

Cool, love the headtracking, hopefully it will improve your score vs. the hawk!?

Limestone cliffs? Looks like the south of the UK!

Nice video and a big plus for the friendly smile. Smile
