My $10 Nitro FPV plane

Here is my latest FPV plane. I picked it up for $10 at the Perry Swap Meet.
I am elated at how good it does... I feel like I am flying around in a Cessna Bird Dog

Go ahead and list your equipment. I'm looking to do something similar.

Thanks

Awesome

Mark,
It doesn't get much better than looking out over the rocker covers of a purring four stroke.
I love the pilot, seems to have "full control" of everything, where's his "partner in crime" ?
I'm planning on bringing back my 1/4 scale Cub with all new video equipment onboard, the stuff I built many years ago will be permanently retired.
The O.S.D. is a nice option, but I probably won't really need it as I'm not going FPV, at least, not at this time.
Thanks for the list of the parts you used, it will help get my Cub/video project moving.
