What to do?
My new “Robo” goggles turned up last week, so I had to test them somehow.
But with the new tough measures the government has put in place, flying at the field is out.
Oh well next best thing is to get out the brushless whoop and fly around the house. (and annoy the dog)
Luckily I bought some replacement batteries only a couple of week’s ago.
This is a quick video recorded on my Fatshark goggle’s DVR (so not good quality)
My impressions on the Little Pilot VR headset are,
Good bright & clear picture
Can flip up the mirror and see your surrounds
Can be used with glasses
Distorted picture, narrow at top, wide at bottom
No 4.3 option so FPV is stretched out to 16.9
Poor cable management, tiny power connector
No battery mounting option
You have to remove the screen from the headset to change settings
Overall happy with them, they will be ideal for the FPV camera boat
The brushless whoop is the URUAV UR65
And special thanks to our temporary commander in chief Kermit for the online Topgun Flight School Quad lessons.
after 6 months of this I should get better at flying it!

Dear temporary president Kermit,
I don’t have any cyclops goggles to compare them with!
Question 1. I don’t know if they are lighter. but they weigh 400g without the battery (not supplied)
Question 2. They have a very clear and bright picture with good reception from the inbuilt dual receivers.
Question 3. Cost me $168 including postage from ebay – Banggood have them on special now for $132 but not in stock?
Question 4. I ordered them on Tuesday 24th March and they were delivered on Thursday 26th March.
Question 5. ????? I believe BA & Mike ordered some from Banggood weeks ago and still had not been posted as of last Thursday.

Kermit & others, both Ross & I cancelled out Banggood orders for the goggles as I spoke to them online & they had no idea when they would be back in stock & then wanted another 4 weeks to ship them.
I ordered my replacements from AliExpress and they were posted within 48 hours with a guaranteed max delivery of 20 days or a full refund. Ross ordered his from a company in Singapore (they were a bit cheaper than AilExp) & I believe his are on the way as well.
As for the rest of your queries, they can be answered when the new ones arrive. Certainly from the limited testing I did with RonC’s goggles, the new design is much easier to use when wearing glasses & allows for peripheral vision as well. They don’t however have any record facility without an addon VCR whereas the newer Quanum Diversity goggles that Ross & I both have (for sale) do have a fairly decent video recorder built in.

THANK YOU ALL FOR RESPONDING TO YOUR NEW LEADERS REQUEST FOR INFORMATION ….. UNCLE G you started your email reply with the words “temporary leader ” that may be true but you have to prepare yourself for the inevitable possibility of leadership change and it might be wise not to upset the new leader with provocative words like “temporarily” tossed around… there will be a new title offer for the Mr movie magic…….. ONCE we return to flying….. it could be you ……or not just sayin …. PRESIDENT KERMIT LA FROG

Great video Uncle G getting clever little boy’
On a more serious note leave the poor dog alone
2 April 2020 at 11:45 #4711
Thanks Moose, hope you are well.
Don’t worry about the dog, she loves chasing it!

Hi Uncle G
Can you tell me what flight sim you used with the Hobbyking dongle and where did you get it
2 April 2020 at 14:03 #4713
The one I bought is “Real Flight 9” from ebay. the dongle is for FrSky transmitters.
You can buy Real Flight in two versions, with or without a controller.
I just bought the software and use the dongle, but this took a bit of setting up to work.
If you get the controller version you just plug it in and play.
With the way the Australian Dollar is the price has gone up a lot since I got mine.
Might pay to talk with Mike about the one he uses.
Or another option is to enrol in Kermits ONLINE Top Gun Flight School!
2 April 2020 at 14:18 #4714
how dare you suggest I go to ?????? flight school It would be a backward step I would loose what little skill I have
Hope the Frog does not see this
Thanks for the info I have talked and tried Mikes but windows 10 does not like it
Down loaded a demo of real flight can’t get it to work are you running windows 10

SOOOOOOO My number one has little or no faith in my famous Top Gun on line flight school that for the past year has produced some of the finest Filipino and Chinese RC pilots the world has ever seen I thank the jedi pilot from droughy point and also the our first class pilot young Ricky who under my leadership has risen from the ranks to now top of the board in the flight line tuckar shed….. have demonstrated to you Mr Mooose that if you were in attendance at the flight line flying field during the past year your knowledge of the school would be to the level of the rest of the outstanding membership I now am proud to lead so I accept that in this instance your lack of knowledge is understandable and that there will be no repercussions PRESIDENT KERMIT LA FROG

Just had a backyard flight with the mavic mini.

Nice video Chris but perhaps you need to slow down the pan (or increase the frame rate) so as not to blur the pic.
Not a lot of traffic about.
I’ve been going to put the Mavic Pro up for a flight around here but every time I think about it, its either windy or raining.
Anyway I downloaded the ASW 28 files for the Phoenix Flight simulator So I guess I’ll just have to go and fly that.
Avios Grand Tundra
Avios Bush Mule (a good one for Bad Angel to get some practice in on)
Ranger 2K (for Moose)
