Pan and tilt mechanism

Since it was only going to add about 1 oz of weight I figured I could add a pan and tilt system to the aircraft. The tilt is a simple hinge actuated by a servo. This is mounted to the top of another servo for pan capability.

I cut out a small chamber in the nose for the mechanism. The camera is still behind the nose for some crash protection.

Additionally, I got around to covering the airplane. I made the tail bright neon red so in case there is a video glitch, I might be able to find it easier... I hope.
