Head-up display unit for FPV hobby flying


The whole FPV (First Person View) R/C flying hobby fascinates me. I’d love to try it at some point. This system, being developed by a French maker, is a board that plugs into the video camera system used in a FPV rig to provide a heads-up display with useful flight, navigation, and power information. Looks like it’s still in the prototyping phase and there’s no word about selling it, kits, open sourcing, etc.

Check out some of the other cool projects on his site, like this analog instrument panel to go in the cockpit of an FPV plane so you can see the instruments from the camera POV as if you were in the cockpit.

    Been a fan of this site for three years or so, now. This is probably one of the most impressive projects I’ve seen in that time. Incredible build.
