I see some interesting trends emerging in growing beyond RC concerning UAV and FPV

So I thought why not just brain storm a bit  and find out  what members feel   about these :

1) UAV : Autonomous  flight with lower end practically affordable products like Ardu Pilot etc from DIY Drones  the total package will be around Rs 20 K ++ for a thermopile type and around Rs 25 k ++ for IMU Type .

2) FPV  :  no idea at what price will people be interested in any case a complete system I guess should retail around Rs 30 K ++

Currently these  are the system price estimates apart from the flying platform

The reason I am asking this is because these are future trends , what intrigues me is that I have had many customers from North India talking to me especially about UAV's as they are looking for multiplex planes as platforms .

I was hoping for more of definition and textual description for the sake of others  Tongue

Anyways, it is "First  Person Video" flight, where the model is controlled by looking only at the video feed transmitted from the model.

Cool video!.. I always wanted to do it but the equipment cost put me off. BTW, I guess, there would be legal issues if you fly that far and at that height.

I agree flying around cities at that altitude and distance could pose legal issues.

But the feel of piloting your RC Plane from the cockpit seems amazing . In fact to give you the realistic feeling the special  eye ware has a HUD ( Head UP Display ) which  gives you  various  reading  including battery voltage , you also get what is called as head tracking  which automatically pans  the camera in the plane based on your head movement on ground.

These seem great growth areas for Modelers in a couple of years .
As for the cost yes today it might be too high but as it usually happens I expect that these would get affordable in the years to come.

As for autonomous flight  I was involved in a project  by an engineering college  and the thrill lies in actually predetermining a flight path  and getting the plane to perform that without manual interference  and watching it  follow those commands on a laptop.

@ sai,

FPV, UAV & mav are been done in india. There are alot of individuals & companies into this. i saw atleast 6 indian companies in the aero india show.

So i don't think india is lacking in this at all.

Photography is not illegal only you should not break anybodies privacy & not fly the models over govt or defence property.

Katty ,
I am closely associated with 3 of them  for UAV/MAV related platforms  , but these  are high end  variety similar to MICRO Pilot , Kestrel , etc .
I am talking about hobby budget products.
The legal angle Ismail is talking about I assume is at  high altitude when you fly a foam plane say like above cloud level as in the VDO's  you will not be visible to air traffic  and  could be infringing  air space  of commercial or other flights  same goes for long distance flights .

That is very interesting. I was always interested in experimenting with FPVs. How much would the Video transmitter / receiver setup cost, and the range for it ? also the other issue would be range of the radio .. ie the ones we use are < 1 km  .. so how do you go about that ?

 Grin - Well, I saw a video of FPV about 2 years before and the guy who made the video had made references to the equipments he used. The video transmitter alone soared about $200!!.. On top of that the video googles with motion sensor and other accessories were way too much.

For a SPADer like me, I would prefer a kit or a circuit diagram to make it. That is more fun than buying it off the self. The max I would spend is about $300.

No Longer a SPADer you now have an arf  Grin Grin

The budget you mentioned is not really way off the mark  within striking distance excluding shipping freight  for a basic FPV set up without head tracker  which I am told is  not essential for a beginner in FPV in any case
