OMG, WTF IS ON HIS HEAD!


YES its FULLY OPERATIONAL!

The headset has 4 basic components. High gain antennae, diversity receiver, base station recorder and video goggles, both taken off the same AV (audio/video) feed.

The plane has a hero HD camera on it, which records HD on its own, but also pipes AV through to the transmitter, which then goes down to the base station.

I had doubts about if it would fly or not. The plane is now over 1 000g (heavy for an easy star) and a lot of the new weight is ‘high’ on the plane. Weight above the center of gravity will destabilize the plane.

Thankfully it looks like it all works fine! W00T. Now to try it somewhere fun!

    At first, the voice made me think that you built a dalek! Really, that headset is amazing. Imagine pilots just sitting in an airport flying a plane through this helmet!

    You must have horrible vertigo after using that plane… although it does look rather awesome, admittedly.

    Absolute proof that being an internet atheist does not get you laid.

    What’s on his head? Clearly it’s the crown of the King of Dorks!

    It’s a pretty sweet set up, but surely something can be done about aesthetics? It’s a good job you use out in remote places where no-one is around to see. 🙂

    OMG, WTF did you do to that shrubbery?

    The knights who until recently said “NI!” want their groundcover back!

    And while I loved the ring-modulated voice, dude you HAVE to take an “inflatable acquaintance” with you… 😉
