Seeing is Believing: First FPV Flight

I was able to finally get some real first person video (FPV) flying in! I had left my video recorder at home, so I borrowed an Archos 605 Mobile DVR which made a HUGE difference. Much larger screen made it much more comfortable for me to finally take my eyes completely off the airplane. I got about 20 mintues of video flying at Old Kinderhook (golf course in Missouri). Unfortunately there wasn't a good landing point near where I launched from, so the flight ended in a crash! Luckily, the Easystar was fixed in less than 5 minutes with some epoxy. Check out the edited video below!
