FPV epp eagle...

Sucking at cosmetics as usual... My square Security2000 cam is hard to hide...



A Mobius on one side of the wing and the VTX on the other side should look much better... I guess...
Painting the whole thing in colors should hopefully mask this horrible wart...

A ping-pong ball maybe or just anything more aerodynamic ?

Wow that one is nice :

Now that I have built the FFF eagle and the EPP eagle, I want to give a try to a motorized Eddie the Eagle. Has anyone succesfully built Eddie the Eagle with one or two motors ?

All I can find are old threads and no-one answers.

Thank you

I personnally have about 35 on the second and largest feather (my first line feathers are destroyed / lost), starting from the front, and down to 10 for the last line feathers.

I've enjoyed this thread very much and have seen numerous things in here I'd like to try at some point and time. However I'm looking for something just a bit different.

I have gathered the parts together to try FPVing and after getting it all sorted out on my trainer I want a dedicated FPV plane. Originally I had planned on a deep reaper for that purpose, but with all the bad publicity out there right now, I thought that something that could pass for a bird might be a better idea. I'll just be doing short range FPV to start, but I'd like to have a plane that could handle long range if I ever get to that point.

Does anyone know of plans or a kit that would fit this request? Heck, I'll even take wacky ideas. My original thought was to go ahead with the deep reaper and paint a bird silhouette on the bottom and add a fuselage under it.

I really want to stick with the flying wing profile if at all possible.

Thanks,

bob
