Pi­lot’s View

Electric Flight - - READY MADE RC STRIX GOBLIN -

If you are not ready to fly your plane fully FPV, con­sider us­ing an ac­tion cam­era to see what the view is like from your model while you fly. The Strix Gob­lin that we re­viewed this month has the per­fect place for a Mo­bius ac­tion cam­era to be mounted on the canopy/hatch.

Be­fore you fly, hit record and then go have fun. The views are breath­tak­ing, and watch­ing the footage of a high-speed pass is al­most like be­ing in the pi­lot’s seat of a high-speed jet.

If you are like me, you will find your­self want­ing to make the move to full FPV fly­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence the view all the time. It is also a great way to get peo­ple in­ter­ested in what we do. When you show them what our planes are ca­pa­ble of from the per­spec­tive of the “pi­lot,” it drives home what a great hobby we are in­volved in.

So if you have a com­pact ac­tion cam­era and an air­frame with a place to mount it, as with the Strix Gob­lin, you have no ex­cuse not to get some footage of fu­ture flights. You may be sur­prised at the views you cap­ture!
