Here is another new video from my travels over the weekend.
Crownhill Fort, Plymouth, Devon UK

My latest flight was done yesterday in Calstock, Cornwall UK. Great day and a beautiful area. I only did full FPV for bit of the video as I have never flown in this area and didn't want to get disorientated. ;D I LOVE FPV!

Stalled at the moment due to being ill all over half term and then not being able to walk for most of the week following that.
Was pricing up aluminium stock for the frame the other week though.
Looks like we are also hopefully building a couple of reprap 3d printers so may use some parts produced with that as well

plexer Interestingly, our ICT/Technology students have just finished a reprap and have now decided they want a UAV.
Would you be up for a collaborative project? I'm not leading this but can put you in touch if ok.
@CyberNerd will pm you tomorrow about that.
Just found this on ks XDev - the new standard in hobby development boards by Daniel Wingerd — Kickstarter could be useful for all sorts of things.

The Black Sheep video in London is brilliant if you take it at face value, some of those sights we would never be able to see unless someone did this, I don't think its better than the 'Trappy' New York video by them, much better flyer I think.
The best post I have seen about The Black Sheep (TBS) was by 'LoopDreams' on FPV Hub:
Leaving aside arguments over the legality.
How TBS see themselves:
How people see them:
"RC Daredevils", gimme a break.
I hope video's like this are not used as evidence in some board room to apply for more stricter rules which could spoil the fun for the ones that are 'trying' to stick to the rules. I know this might be the pot calling the kettle black lol
This has got me intrigued... ! Feel like this could be something I could get in to; make a nice distraction from work and family life!!!
Just been watching this set of videos; very helpful in understanding things a bit better....

3D printing is amazing, I wish I had one or had access to one but when I looked into them it was going to be about £600 just to get to the first print, is the process cheaper now or still around the same price all in?.
His design is great and I love the use of my fravorite resource ZIP TIES
