Right now the control surfaces are inboard and outboard elevons and rudder. So would the inboard elevon serve better as any other type of flight control? Plane has not flown and elevons rates are -40%, roll 70% and pitch 100%
Airfoil is a MH-60 with 78" W/S. AUW 14lbs

So Paul I am looking for a helmet cam. Have any suggestions? I have a camera that is the size of a Bic cigarette lighter, but do not have a clue how to aim it.
Thanks

The B-35 and B-49 had flaps for the inboard surfaces. I see no need for those on a model. The outboards should be more than adequate for control anyway.
The MD-80 cameras I have come with a couple of clip-on mounts. Adding the camera and mount to a hat brim would be easy. Hat cameras need some method of assuring they're aimed where you're looking.
The 808 Keyfob style makes a better hat-brim camera.
