    That Tomcatter patch is the original from WWII. Lot of history behind that little patch.

      I run a pby, Seawind, sky hunter mini and nano, also a mako. All do excellent for FPV

        I really want to run the flight line p38 the same way. All my planes can be quickly converted from FPV to line of sight as quickly as changing the canopies

                  I'll echo everyone's youtube comments. Wow! That was a really great video. Well edited with all the camera shots. The "BRRRRRT!" was awesome! And, great music too. Great work!

                    not sure if I would do this because of limits on situational awareness

                      Hey guys I did a couple videos on the Mobius and latency tests and how it compares to a real board cam for FPV use. I've posted them all here for you to have a look at. This should help clear some things up.

                      How to set up the Mobius for FPV



                      Mobius FPV Latency Test



                      Board Cam Latency test vs Mobius results.

                        I love this form of flying - scale FPV. Here are links to videos of some of the scale FPV cockpits I have built, in flight. These all started out as standard Dynam and FMS airframes, all of which either still are or have been in the MotionRC range. I just put in scale cockpits and the FPV gear. Dynam Hawker Hurricane, Dynam Albatros DVa, Dynam Tiger Moth, FMS P51b and FMS Fox glider.

                          Hello RB and welcome to the Squawk,
                          Very impressive level of cockpit detailing which gets bumped to the insane level with the FPV and pilot joystick movement

                              Great to have you on the Squawk, Robo! I've been a fan of your videos for a while. You've really got some nice setups. Keep up the great work!

                                RoboBiggles cockpit realism is the pinnacle of RC scale FPV. Tough act to follow.

                                Still, I love flying HD FPV with headtracking to explore our club field from airborn perspective. Our ground bound club members don’t know what beautiful sights they are missing; the creek for example. It’s becoming harder and harder to stay within our field boundaries....

Here’s my current scale FPV platform. Pretty sweet! Now to learn how to taxi, takeoff and land with long nose blocking forward view, just like in real Spitfire!
