FPV Wing in the Woods

We had beautiful flying weather at the shop, so we took our FPV FT Mighty Mini Arrow out for a flight through the woods near Flite Test HQ.

At first we had some issues with the FPV signal, but eventually Josh got airborne. And then proceeded to crash into a few trees. :)

Josh made some repairs and replaced the smashed-up electronics and glued a paint stick to the bottom of the wrinkled nose to help protect the camera.

The next runs started successfully, but still ended in crashes.

We came back the next day to try our luck flying a FPV FT Mini Sportster with elevator, rudder and ailerons.

If you fly FPV with a wing through cool obstacles, record it and share it with us!

Josh, you asked for links to some good FPV videos of guys flying wings through trees, that's all we do! On my channel, my friends and I specialize in fpv airplane proximity flying through trees. Subscribe to my channel, this summer we have some crazy stuff planned with massive planes. Expect to see an FT Explorer and FT Arrow pretty soon, in hopefully a 3 plane formation through trees. Here is just a few of our videos! Again please subscribe. Got a crazy video coming out tonight!

Just a small comment, it wasn't a falcon you've spotted, but a redtail hawk.

Have you ever tried to use head tracking goggles to control the elevator and rudder/aileron, instead of the camera gimble?
