Single-stick Tx design thread
| Nov 21, 2014 @ 01:47 AM | 1,609 Views
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:

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 !!!

"FPV" Pelican Beak-Cam GoPro Video
| Mar 03, 2014 @ 03:26 PM | 2,168 Views
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.
