EasyGlider Wing on a Wing Dragon: Testing a new FPV rig

I'm planning to use my Wing Dragon to carry an FPV camera and transmitter and to carry the extra payload I've added an EasyGlider wing. It has a slightly smaller cord but increases the wingspan from 41" to 72". I made a carbon fiber cap to allow it to be attached to the top of the fuselage. It worked great! I'm not aware of anyone doing this before so I'm posting this. See this video for a look at the plane and an inflight video (Flip Mino HD for now). A few more modifications to power and tail feathers and I'll be adding the FPV. I'll add pics and video as they come.

First FPV flight with this modified platform (and first FPV flight ever for me!)!See the updated pictures including larger tail, camera, transmitter, and the guts of the plane. It worked perfectly!

That looks crazy! How did the final work out? What are the differences in flight characteristics and FPV?
I have a simular idea for mine.

I have a set of Easyglider wings that are doing nothing at the moment. I did get them for my Easystar.
I also have a a Wing Dragon... Hummm.
How did you get on with the 2.4 RC and the 1.2 FPV?
I have the simular systens and I had to do things to stop inter interference.
