  • Interesting aircraft.  Not sure where the camera would go however you could make a larger nose cone to fit.

  • I use motor Turnigy GliderDrive


    During the flight in mode  Fly by Wire B current just only 7A  ( 20% programmed )
     This is enough to keep constant altitude. I use on board battery 3 cells 3200ma, but for some kind of flight you can use 3 cell 5000ma.
     I think , for special flights you can use another motor for better long term flight

    Looks nice!

    If you get a chance, can you post a flight log? I'm interested in seeing what sort of range a model like this would have for search and rescue applications. A flight log (along with what type of battery is fitted) would give me some idea of what it can do.

    Cheers, Tridge
