FPV Goggle Gyrations

3/13/2017
More
In this 360th installment you'll find me sharing my personal experience with several versions of FPV goggles that are on the market these days. They are not all created equal and range in prices from really inexpensive all the way to DANG! - That's a LOT! LoL Goggle sets that I have personally used and are mentioned in this show: FatShark Attitude SD (Mine are now obsolete so this is just a link to the manual) Quanum DIY Goggles HeadPlays Quanum Cyclops FatShark Dominator V3

In this 359th installment, I'll do a little housekeeping in sharing some links that show you how to build your own Spektrum module instead of buying a DM9 module. Also, I answer a listener's email in regards to the kind of adhesives that can be used when building a typical balsa aircraft, and where each of those adhesive is best used.

Hopefully this installment will be of surprise to you guys! I've really missed doing my show, but with the health issues I've endured, it's just been too hard to do a live show in a specific time slot each week, hence the 8 month hiatus (with the exception of occasionally being on the AngleOfAttack podcast when my health has allowed). My desire to help folks enjoy this great hobby hasn't waned a bit, so I've decided to try something a little different. My plan is to record short shows...

In this 355th, and FINAL installment of our little show, we continue with the second part of last week's show where we were recapping our SEFF 2016 experience (what a great time we had!). What a wonderful ride it's been! I've been pluggin' away with this weekly show for more than 7 years now and as much as I hate to hang it up, I really think that it's time to walk away for a while. With the treatments for my cancer putting a "hurtin'" on me every other week, it's just become a little more...

This 352nd installment of our show should land while most of our group is in transit to SEFF 2016. In this one we share our 'accommodations' (campers, tents, etc.) for this big event, as well as the goodies that we are intending to bring to fly. Let's face it, this is another blow-off show - our attempt to entertain and inform you, even though we are actually too busy to do a live show this week. LoL By all means, if you are attending SEFF this year, come by and hang out with us!!
