Default FPV 450 Build

So, I can't fly helicopters LOS really. I can tail-in hover, but that's literally about the extent of my skill level. And I'm just too damn nervous and not rich enough to be crashing the things left and right learning to fly with the nose in, let alone anything else.

Besides that, it's always been a dream of mine to FPV a helicopter. I've finally managed to achieve this, even in light of the FPV game having moved completely in the direction of quads.

Here's a very brief build log

A short hover test (before I had the FPV equipment mounted).

And a pretty badly shot flight video.


I'm still working on perfecting how it flies, kinda learning as I go along here. I love hearing advice and suggestions, and I've even got a thread going over it, for a breakdown of the specific issues I'm running into.

Thanks!

I applaud your wiring and straight forward fixture designs! Is it possible to capture the FPV video stream to show us the flights from your vantage point?

Thanks for the compliments. I've even improved the fixtures since doing the build: https://imgur.com/a/rlRCPkJ

Short version: Not at the moment, but stay tuned - I'm doing another one.

Long version: I went cheap on the FPV side for this build, all analog and $45 Emax Transporter goggles, without any way to record the footage.

As an experiment, I consider it to have been mostly a success, and since upgraded to a DJI digital system, which has full recording capabilities.

Unfortunately, the 450 decided to take a dump on me and is for some unknown reason unflyable due to vibration issues. I'm stripping it in lieu of a new helicopter, the parts for which are on the way.

I'll do a build thread for the new heli soon, I'll link the thread here, so keep an eye out!
