Another Gluonpilot project - PZ Stryker
After some succesful tests with the Mx Funjet + Gluonpilot I have been looking for a slightly bigger airframe to carry a bigger camcorder/camera and came across the ParkZone F27Q Stryker.
I remember seeing some video of the Attopilot in a Stryker, so it might be a future home for my Attopilot as well.
Anyway - I was surprised to see that the smaller Funjet has more room in the fuselage but I am sure I can carve out some foam to make room for the gear...
The Stryker came with an enormous 70g ESC that will be replaced with more normal size ESC that won't need to handle too much current since I will mainly be cruising around....
Here are some pictures...

I love my Stryker. It has a very wide speed envelope and landings are a breeze (as long as it's not too loaded down). But my next flying wing will most likely be the Deep Reaper. Much bigger than the Stryker, but still easy to transport. It was designed with FPV in mind, so flying it with an Attopilot and assorted sensors will work great.

Looks great Bjorn, the Stryker is a bit like a single engined version of the old Multiplex TwinJet (my first rc airplane!).
Look forward to hearing how the Gluonpilot performs in it!
