Recent modifications to the EasyGlider

There has been some recent interest in using the EasyGlider as a flying platform so I've included some updated pictures. Space was increased beneath the canopy by removing the rudder servo since it's not being used and grinding/cutting into the right fuselage wall. This area was reinforced with fiberglass and the increased space allowed addition of the EagleTree datalogger and extra GPS. The rudder is now locked in place by the horn and a piece of balsa glued to the vertical fin.

Nice setup. rely good setup. But i can just say, wires is a pain hehe

Do you think the Z -sensor will work 100% in that position? Do you know the beam width? so it not interface whit the wing?

I think it's fine in that position. I doubt it can see the wing, but if it did a bit, it doesn't matter because it's static, not changing. The Z just calibrates up and down.

The picture is skewed. The upper lense is not as close to the wing's leading edge as it looks.
