Here's a little night flight I did a couple days ago, flying at night is a real test of nerves!

Re: FPV it is!

Thanks! It's quite different flying at night, you need to rely on instruments more.

Re: FPV it is!

Nice flying !!!

Got a similar setup for flight controller but cant seem to get minimOSD to work (turn on) how did you end up wiring it?

can you pm me on how you got yours to work?

I tried the 5v mod etc but still no luck. But when i connect the Vtx and the camera it works fine.

thanks !
