    First test flight of my FPV enabled turbine sport jet. Without really trying got up to 237mph and 1200ft. Speed and altitude telemetry displayed in the video. Learnt a lot and a few improvements to be made on our next outing. Have included a short look at the GPS data in Google Earth at the end.

    Thanks Mike. We abide by European law, specifically what is termed 'article 16'. Key thing is the aircraft has to be kept within visual line of sight. Which it was because I was flying it VLOS. The guy sitting down was wearing the FPV goggles...but we had a good chat afterwards about whether it could actually be flown FPV.
