FPV flying not thrilling enough? Why not build a cockpit ground station

With the new DJI FPV drone causing so much excitement among the first person view flying community, here’s a homebrew project to consider: build your own cockpit ground station for even more immersive fun.

The team at FliteTest built their own replica cockpit ground station for flying RC aircraft. As builds go, this is pretty basic. PVC pipe, bungee cords and an old milk crate are the stars of this show. Still, it seems to be a thrilling experience and these guys are also pilots who fly full-sized planes.

The pilots gutted an RC transmitter for its gimbal and pots, and they detail much of the build in an earlier video. Admittedly, some this is going to be technically difficult with a DJI FPV drone. Although if you fastened the DJI motion controller to a long “throttle” stick, you might be halfway there…

If you’re not terribly interested in the build, the flying starts at around 10:48
