Just a tip.
For practicing FPV and infrared a few of us are using a smoke system from wallmart. The idea of using IR like guns on the wing is not as helpful as adding the IR bulb to the pan/tilt pod. I think its safer for the plane to have the bulb pivot with the video and fly next to the ground target"up off the ground a few feet" and hit it then aim at the target with the plane. I think it will be about the same if you’re using the sonic with a servo to release parts from a trap door for a air 2 air. Aiming the IR using the plane is a pain.
good hunting

ps.. The smoke system uses IR to turn on the pump to see the smoke after the hit. 40 bucks and you have something to shoot at lol.
