Top view of cutout for inward facing camera. foam shim controls angle of camera toward fuselage.
View of inward vacing camera mounted into hole. First flights it was just taped in place. Now it has velcro so no more tape needed. The camera is really only about half covered by imbedding in the wing. Half is still in the airstream, flies fine.
Top view of forward facing camera. a strip of plastic "spar" is embedded in the wing extending about 1" into solid wing on either side, for support of the outboard side. A window is cut out of the plastic "spar" for the lens' view
Bottom of forward cam slot covered with thin plastic sheet ca'd in place.
View of leading edge and window for forward camera. Note that the window is larger than expected, leaving not much of the plastic "spar" in place. Sheeting on bottom and spar form a strong "T" beam.
Cam viewing the fuselage. Tilted up relative to wing tip to compensate for dihedral. The result is a level cam in flight.
Forward cam, tilted slightly downward in flight.
