Are those not the **** though? You can get a two operator system where on controlls the copter and the other the video. Also you can get the glasses with it that project what your camera it capturing. For everything with it its only around 20k lol. But i feel lke you can build one like that for less than 1k. All you need are like 6 brushless motors with rotors. 2 lipo batteries and then the electronics. Which you can find anywhere for that.

We just need to gather some parts and build one. I already have a Futaba 6 channel radio, range, about 1.5 miles. Servos and motors should be cheap.

Btw, anyone else here fly R/C?
I have a gas powered .40, but i think a gopro with case is too heavy and without case would be covered in castor oil.

Mark said it weighs 15.x oz with case. 1 pound is too heavy for my plane. I adjust center of gravity on it with .1 oz weights lol. I might could get away with an extra 7 or 8 ozs but not 15. it aint cheap and i aint keen on crashing it. The wings are held on by thick rubber bands and adding weight to the plane can cause the wings to lift from the plane slightly and it will loop around the wing axis and is very difficult to control. I did this once by not putting on enough bands lol. Its scary, and gopro is expensive if it crashes. I can however mount a cam on it, they make them but i don't know if they make hd cams for them. Will investigate further.

Get a big box and custom fit it to the DP.

Fill the box with lots of paper and ripped up magazines.

Have fun with it. I make every box for items I send out.

Here is an TXs axleback I sent out a while ago. When I sent it out everyone at the post office looked at me like I was insane

K so I'm about to buy a bypass valve to try on my car to see if it fixes the rest of my issues.
But before I do I wanna check one more time to make sure no one has one for me to test on my car.
I don't want to buy a $300 part and it doesn't fix anything.

Got my external wastegate swapped out (thanks for the help farmboss).
Good thing too, I think this should be all one piece...

I would suggest the forge BPV great product awesome price. I have been running one for almost 2 yes and I love it.

I would let you try mine if I were in the area :-/

That diaphragm valve rod looks a little worn.
