If your thinking about fpv you might want to check out this flight sim, It also covers multirotor craft like the quad and octo copters.

Some great news for anyone interested in FPV, I received an email from FPV UK (below).

If anyone is interested in a joint effort I will be happy to buddy up as this kind of thing can be expensive, its always a good idea to spread the cost. Any way please read below.

FPV UK is very pleased to announce that on the 21st September 2011 the CAA authorised First Person View flying as Person In Charge; a second pilot is no longer required.

This authorisation is in the form of an Exemption from article 166(3) of the Air Navigation Order 2009 and is only for full members of FPV UK when they fly models of less than 1.8kg, below 400ft, and have a Competent Observer as lookout.

The Exemption ties in with the new FPV UK Pilot Handbook which includes excellent guidance on FPV flying and specific guidance on flying FPV with a Competent Observer; such as what he or she should say if they spot a full size aircraft heading your way.

FPV UK Chairman Simon Dale said “We have been working with the CAA for over two years on this and we’re extremely pleased to have got to this point. FPV flying offers a great fun and absorbing (or should that be addictive?!) new aspect to our wonderful hobby and it’s fantastic that competent flyers can now fly without having to find another R/C pilot happy to hold a buddy switch for the entire duration of each and every flight!”
