The center "Cockpit) will hang under the wing and obviously handle the payload Batteries, Pan and tilt camera, go pro. Do you think the 20 inch spread between the Booms is enough space to place Vtx on one side and Rx on the other and avoid interference? Would the 1.25 inch booms be large enough to accept Dlink Reciever and ant. on one side and Vtx/CP ant. on the other?
I have done a couple of twin boom planes. An SO-11 type and a personal design. Check the 2nd plane in the video. The booms are triangular and taper to 1.25 at the tail.
