Cockpit Ground Station & Epic FPV X-Country Flight

by galaxy engineer | February 12, 2016 | (10 Ratings) Posted in Challenges

Hey Folks

 

I am officially challenging the Flite test boys to try this (Yes, you can use my CGS if you want). Espically see Peter fly the Giant Capybara FPV from this cockpit! If you think so let them know!  I would love to see that plane flown FPV let alone from a cockpit.  

This is a link to the plane I am talking about.......http://flitetest.com/articles/diy-giant-cargo-plane

 

 

I just wanted to share with you an epic flight video we made using a float plane and my Cockpit Ground Station (CGS).  We flew a float plane from my pond to a mountain lake near the next town over from me.  I think it was about a 10 mile flight in all.  The pilot sat in the CGS from take off to landing while I towed the CGS behind my truck to the landing area.  Aside from several traffic violations we made it.  Dont try this at home with your average CGS....we are profesionals.  Not really but at least we can say we have accomplished a FPV first and that makes us the most experienced CGS float plane FPV pilots in the world (dare I say universe)!  LOL!  Enjoy guys but if you have something to say about all the traffic laws we bent please save your breath.  We are aware, we know better, but we did it anyway.  However, if you have something nice to say please let us know!  Also please check out and rate my other articles about the CGS here at flitetest.com

Enjoy and please rate!!!

Well done.
