I'm trying to figure out the best way to enable a NEX 5T to shoot images through the bottom of my Skywalker 1900 carbon tail fuselage. I was considering cutting a hole for the lens and covering it with Lexan, but I feel like the Lexan will get scratched easily and decrease picture quality. I also have a FlatMap gimbal that I am thinking of using, but this would obviously require a much larger hole/slot, as the angle of the camera will no longer be fixed.
Should I consider adding landing gear? I will be taking off by hand and landing primarily on grass, pavement, or dirt roads.
Let me know if any of you have a good way to make these modifications.
