ProxSCHIMity - fast and low through awesome scenery, treesurfing

The kind of flying that I love the most. Gives you the "flying like a bird" feeling the best if you fly close over/under the trees. Found an awesome new spot with a huge field enclosed with some nice trees and a forrest surrounding it. Also flew on my "Eichberg" a lot and found some new lines there as well.

So flieg ich am liebsten, "wie ein Vogel" knapp über Bäume oder darunter durch wenn Platz ist...
Hab in der Nähe ein tolles Feld gefunden, welches perfekt ist für diese Art des Fliegens. Hoffe es gefällt Euch!

Quanum Cyclops Goggles - best value for money goggles! |RCSchim Review and Fieldtest


Pricetag only 53€ / 58$ - get them here
See this review if you wanna start FPV and search easy to use goggles. Pricetag is really beginnerfriendly as well!

HK sent me these really cheap and easy goggles for review. They are clearly aimed for the FPV starters. You dont have to know much about video downlink the get decent image on the huge 5" display which is set in the right distance / size with the fresnel lens.
Just press the autoscan button and it chooses the channel on which your FPV vehicle transmits.
What to do if you want to view a specific channel - let's say on a dronerace where you wanna spectate? I dont know, sorry :-)
No info in the display about the channel / Band you use either.

They are only a bit more expensive than the Quanum V2pros - but the Cyclops comes with an integrated VRX!
But attention! NO AV in - so you cant use groundstation on cyclops!

My GF liked wearing those more than the DominatorHD (easier to get used to for casual users!)
I still prefer to use my DomHDs of course - but I could fly with the Cyclops without much getting used to. I had my problems focussing on the V2pros - the Cyclops looks and feels definitly better!

Lens adjustable (though a friend with glasses couldnt get it sharp for him), really comfortable to wear with the foam!
