Flying FPV around the neighborhood park with a micro FPV rig.

Why is the video so "bad"? Well, this is filmed with a 47 gram micro quadcopter. There's no recording on board here. The video is transmitted to the ground via a 5.8 ghz radio link, so you can see the occasional snowstorm or multipath interference glitch. In addition to that, There is some horizontal noise caused by the fact that the video system, flight control board, and motors are all powered by the same battery. No room for Low cut filtering in the weight budget! Also, the camera's CMOS sensor is a bit damaged, resulting in the vertical color bands. Then there's the fact that the DVR that is recoding the video at the groundstation is only 640 x 480, and employs a really aggressive compression scheme that takes a big bite out of the already dodgy video. Then there's iMovie, then YouTube. I'm pretty happy with it!

The view in the goggles when flying this little rig is about as good as flying any other FPV quadcopter. The image from the camera is quite good.

If you'd like a more clear view of the park, check out this flight, made with my 250 quad:
