I used to fly with nex5 on x-uav talon and canon s100 on skywalker 1900, but as i decided to renew airframes, found out that none of them available on ghe market.
What frames are new on the market instead of talon and skywaker? With wide fuselage and 45-65 dm3 wing area? Can't find anything in stocks...
Scary, but simple and effective. I like it.
My 2 cnts in a skywalker 1668
I replaced the standard window, the extra foam piece downside it's only to support the plane, it doesn't fly.
And then there is this wing, which is simply a modified Phantom FX61. Don't let people tell you the wings are unstable. This is the best platform I've ever had. And what could be simpler. http://www.ebay.com/itm/262377001650
There is also the Penguin with a built-in downward facing camera position. http://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&a...
Steven: How you attach the camera to the Fx61 to avoid damage lens when you land?
(I asked because I still have one in the box and have to resolve that yet)
If you can put a UV filter on the lens. If you scratch the filter just replace it.
I have an FX-61 but I don't fly for mapping. The link I listed, http://www.ebay.com/itm/262377001650 is for a commercial version intended for mapping. You can get ideas from this site. I can tell you, the FX-61 is a fantastic, versatile, long range/endurance aircraft!
It seems quite interesting the 3d print support :
It will be nice to have it available for separate purchase.
Yes, I have to assemble, to fly and my wish is to make cuadplane but not looks easy .
