Hey Bananaman: nice video you post here. Could you please show me how did you mounted the camera? It seems to be a Gopro as per the shadow.

Thanks.

Regards.

Hi Ricardo, I'm in the UK far from my home for a few weeks. I can't get a pic of the mount. It is a flat carbon rib that sits between the wing panels with a peg at the front. The wing joiners hold it in position. A carbon tube is bonded to it. Then there is a fairing that fits snug to the leading edge that stops sideways movement. At the front of the carbon tube, a notch holds a small plate that the GoPro mount is stuck to. Brian.

There was another R/H wing failure at Middle Wallop (UK) aerotow on Saturday. Full details are in this thread, but it was supposed to be a modified wing that failed. It's a bit worrying!
