Carbon Fiber Super Skysurfer FPV Pod

So I wanted to finally have my hand at carbonfiber and figured a dual camera Pan/Tilt would be a great project for my SSS.

Yeah, I saw that video on your YT. Is that mounted on the plane, or just bench mounted?

its sitting on a flying wing... the SSS was getting servo wiring and gluing done... just need magnets and it will fit nicely in the place of the stock Canopy.

So how are you able to control the pan/tilt during flight? I would imagine you were using your xmitter sticks while you were testing it, but what will you use when the sticks are being used for the plane?

I have a head tracker in my goggles. It senses where i look and directs the camera there.

I also have a mix in my remote that switches my throttle/rudder over to another Pot on the remote so the stick can be used for the camera.
