    I have not learned yet how to edit a video so I posted the raw footage up on YouTube. This week has been my first time flying FPV. Out of a week flying up and down the beach I have only had two people that seemed to have a problem with it. I can not believe how many people have come up and asked where they can buy one and how hard is it to fly.

    In this flight I went up to 150m and a distance of 500m from me. I am starting to feel a lot more comfortable taking off and landing with my Sky Zone googles on.

    The footage is taken at Indian Rocks Beach, Florida (USA)

    How are you liking your Sky Zone Goggles? I'm considering those myself.

    I was on the list for the FatShark HD's but they could never get it together to give a ship month and then meet it.

    The SkyZone FPV do all I need and more. I am very happy with them and also the $100.00 less than the FatShark's that I get to keep in my wallet.

    Txcarguy: another question- Since you're seeing what the GoPro sees, can you describe the image? Is it compressed on the sides to be more square-ish? Or does it maintain the aspect ratio of the original GoPro footage?

    I've seen lots of goggle footage online that appears much more square than the rectangular image produced by the GoPro. It's usually produced by another camera onboard that is closer to say 800x600. Just wondering how the GoPro image compares to that.

    Thanks!

    Yes Skyzone googles are great, but they are 400$, not cheap but they are the best of the best...

    You can get them here: http://j.mp/1nqsKMU

    It does not seem compressed on the sides at all. I find myself having to look to the sides to get some of the heads up display info. I really do enjoy flying with them.

    Only had one and trust me, she had nothing to worry about. She could have made it on the WalMart calendar
