Steve Lodefink sent me this amazing video of a guy flying his quadcopter around his neighborhood using a goggle vision system. He even flies it through his(?) house. What fun!

    At first I thought it said Googlevision. I was excited and afraid.

      i think they did that on purpose. Archibald has it right.

      Same here! Very cool vid, next step is having it pick up the phone you left at home and fly it to you.

    It’s called FPV (First Person View).

    Cool! I would do the same thing using an RC car to explore woodchuck holes.

  4. Shrike says:

    As Archibald above said, it’s called FPV and the gear is surprisingly cheap. If you skip the extremely expensive goggles and go with a cheap 7″ car TV or something similar you can get a 900MHz or 2.4GHz transmitter, receiver and a camera around $75

    Incredibly cool. I frequently have the recurring “flying” dream and now to think I could just get something like this… well, just awesome that dreams do come true! Some how, some way I’m going to do this.
