Popwing with 3D-Printed FPV Mods

Hey guys,

I'm working on a new Popwing FPV build, and thought I'd share the mods I designed. I wanted this to be as clean of a platform as possible, so I'm 3D printing a blunt center section, camera mount, and some new vertical stabilizers that are much less ugly than the stock ones. This way it'll be easy to mount all of the gear despite the plane's small size. Here's a render along with pictures of the parts I've already printed. The rest will be done soon. Let me know what you think!

Here's the printed blunt section. Weighs about 3oz.

Getting there. Put it on hold for a bit while I was waiting for some components to arrive. Hopefully I'll finish it up this weekend.

Awesome! Nice job. You just gave me some great ideas for my Ritewing Mini Z I'm building.
