I'm using a stick mount.

Ignore the black tape... That is just for looks. When I removed the old mount, it left deep imprints into the foam. So I cut some black tape to make it look like the original mount to hide the deep imprints into the foam.

If you ever get into FPVing a Stryker, you will still find that the best dollars you spent was on the customRCparts.com mount.... Name: ImageUploadedByTapatalk1425679156.636132.jpg

And again: the Stryker performs absolutely beautifully as a FPV platform. I have a cheap 1500kv swinging an APC 7x5E, 2x3S2200, stock ESC and FPV gear now giving me 20 minutes flight time and 5km range. The best part is that my eyes are in the plane all the time and I feel like a F-16 pilot while flying it

Never thought I'd fpv until some flying buddies got me into nano quad fpv racing in one of our houses. Now I find myself looking around at racing quads and obstacle course work. Doubt I'll do long distance fpv but could find myself going for the rush of a high speed pass or three fpv at my club field.

That's a nice mount, I've considered it before. I've considered so many planes and parts and ended up buying half of them. Of course I've built less than half the planes I've bought, therein lies the rub.

FPV, LSD, HIV... When you got it in your veins, you are kinda fuXXed.
But I enjoy the FPV drug so far

I am going to build me a FPV Stryker 27 C what is the total weight of your plane with battery and everything? and can you send a picture of how you have your camera mounted on the front?

AUW with 2x3S2200 and Mobius on top is about 1.1 kilo. Bottom of the plane is glassed to compensate for rigidity loss caused by all the holes in the foam for the FPV gear. My FPV cam is this: http://www.surveilzone.com/DC5V-plas...m-lens-for-fpv and I have it placed in the nose.
