FPV FTW!

FPV FTW!

Escape Tutor Dan Shutt shared one of his past times with us this week, in the form of FPV flight.

For those of you who don’t know (I didn't until 3 days ago!) FPV is an abbreviation for First Person View, and is a hobby shared by tech fans worldwide. In layman’s terms, it involves mounting a small video camera and television transmitter on a radio controlled aircraft and flying by means of a live video down-link, usually displayed on video goggles, so that while piloting the aircraft, the controller gets a ‘first person view’ of its movements – very cool! 

His videos include some spectacular aerial views of Leysdown on Sea, Blackheath, and the Thames Barrier Gardens, check it out!
