B is for Burbank – FPV Flight

One of my FPV goals was to fly around and take video of the big letter B in the foothills of Burbank and today I've met that goal! My flight times are about 12-15 minutes on 2 x 2,200 3S lipos, on my scratch-built J-Twin airplane (for more information about it click here). I'm using my FrSky Taranis and and extended range receiver, the new X8R and I had no problems with RC range. I was having some static and at around 1KM on my video feed, as I'm using an ImmersionRC 5.8 ghz 600 mW video transmitter.     route-m
