Description: 

This is my 4th FPV attempt in a 315 gram hot-wire cut 2S EP foamy that I have nicknamed the "Pete Special". The plane has gained some weight with a new balsa sandwiched fuselage, plus Micro MinimOSD, GPS, RunCam Nano Camera and VX200 VTX set to 25mW . The OSD altimeter, battery monitor and direction-home arrow have increased my FPV confidence and made landing a lot easier. The extra electronics have impacted the flight time, but not as much as expected. My 7.2volt setting for the OSD battery alarm is way too conservative. Thanks to Ken for acting as spotter and allowing me to use his video receiver when mine started acting up.
