By mid March we were ready to go.
The Easy Glider had been modified for the FPV camera by placing a rear facing brushless motor on a pylon, putting the elevator and rudder servos near the tail, and carving out foam were needed for the video transmitter and the relocated RC receiver. BTW - my inspiration for the Easy Glider modifications came from "http://www.rcdon.com/html/the_sail-cam_project.html". Lots of good information there.

We decided to use the Easy Glider as a "flying breadboard". Implementation of the systems would be practical, not cosmetic. We sure met that goal - it's one ugly aircraft!
