Hi all,

I've been messing around with trying to control pan / tilt / zoom and other camera functions better than current tx's do it. After many prototypes, etc, I settled on this as my "ultimate" tx shape.

On pages 1-3 of the Single-Stick Thread I have a series of posts that show how I ended up with this design and what it does that a standard radio cannot do.

If you're interested, go to the thread here:

Cheers,
Gabe

Hi All,

I received permission from RCG to hold a contest for new planes (gliders, blimps, etc) built with Champ guts.

You can see it here:

I want to keep the builds simple, so that others can follow, but the fun will be in (hopefully) getting your creative juices flowing so that we will end up with a range of interesting planforms, etc.

PRIZES, Fame and Joy await you !!!
(But mostly Joy)

Cheers,
Gabe

A pelican hurt in a storm was patched up and "upgraded" with a beak-mounted GoPro

An interesting thing to note is that even when he's banking, his head stays level with the horizon, not with his wings.
