Skippy 3D

The Skyzone STX202 FPV transmitter is the fragile part of this build. Already trashed one so now trying to find a good location to put it.

Note: The 3D is a reference to the stereoscopic video and not to the 3D flight mode

Current troubles/puzzles/issues/tasks

  1. Remove the totally unnecessary SKYDC5V Regulator from this build
  2. Find a good location for the VTX (probably in a printed case)
  3. Remove the PDB to see if the 5v from the FC is enough to power the VTX and radio

Previous troubles/puzzles/issues

  1. Get OSD to work (on one eye). Failed! Video for that eye was dimmed and didn't show OSD info. After I blew a resistor or capacitor I gave up on this endeavour. Should have made pictures of my setup though.. I might have made a stupid mistake and reviewing it might reveal it.
  2. Get telemitry to work. Kinda failed.. Had it hooked up right from the start. Just never told my Taranis to detect telemitry.

What's it like flying in 3D mode?

koenmulder   May 15, 2018 

I like it but I haven't really flown in 2D yet so it is hard to compare. My next/current build has a normal camera so in about a week I'll be able to tell what is better.

Note: I'm not flying in 3D mode. My motors do not reverse. I'd say I fly with stereoscopic video

what?! how? and why?!

What?! - A fragile quad that sends two video feeds
How? - A combination of magic, science and hot glue
Why?! - Good camera reviews, novelty and my adventures character

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
