    This user has 20 videos of the topic, this first video I point out shows some flying plus a quick demo of the equipment he uses including his goggles which control pan and tilt of the camera on the vehicles!!!

    Now try telling me this isn't every lads dream [​IMG]

    Not sure exactly how much this sort of setup will cost. Obviously need good spacial awareness so you don't get carried away and fly out of radio range.

    Some of the videos using RC cars too.

    Pretty cool. I like how he even put little in a little mini instrument cluster on the dash of the R/C plane.

    There does appear to be some barrel distortion or fisheyeing with that wireless camera that for flying and successfully landing a plane must make things difficult. Wonder how many planes he has gotten through before perfecting the landing!
