Drone Over Hilo
Alistair Bostrom writes: “Just having fun with the new TBS Discovery, at Hilo’s bay front park. The current setup is a Futaba 14SG coupled to a Dragon Link 70cm radio system. The bird has a Naza Lite +GPS controller, 3300mAh 4S LiPo, T-motor 900kv 2216s and 9×5 Graupner E-Props. The FPV rig is a little Sony feeding a 600mW Skylark 5.8 GHz video TX, viewed with Skyzone diversity receiver goggles at the other end.”
