AP aircraft stock?

Are there any good AP aircraft in the Air Hogs range that could hold one of the cameras you guys reccomend? I really don't want to toss a lot of money into it, and AH aircraft are easy to fly

Some of the bigger AH's could fly with a keychain camera. You can order one off ebay for from $13 to $19.

You're going to have a hard time getting any of the AH planes to fly any kind of camera with any real authority.

Ya, thats what i figured. Thats why I was wondering if I could strip out the F 16 guts, mate them to one of those old 90s foam gliders and slap a keychain camera on them?

I would imagine that would work pretty well. I've seen several of those wallyworld gliders made into rc planes.

Most Ive seen are using micro servos, cheap outrunners and cheap receivers.
A bp 21, 20 amp esc, some esky micro servos, a gws receiver and you're good to go.

just out of curiosity, what is the carrying weight of an AA Bipe or F 35 looking plane? Could it hold one of the keychain cameras?

There's no way to know that generically. There are so many versions of those planes. A Wing Dragon would work in a smaller space.
