Camera positions.
Like this setup as it is about as smooth in the air as I can get. I have to point the plane in the direction I want video, but I don't mind that.

Curious what the verdict is on the latest SW with the single 10mm carbon wing spar...
Is it still recommended to join the wing halves and do the carbon ribbon re-enforcements?

I have mine so the rudder is on a y with my aileron and my pan in on my 'rudder' stick. Makes for a smooth pan and I rarely miss the rudder.

The wing suffered a tear and a dent (from a branch) and is still in one piece and repairable. How is know is this is the SW in the photo, Mr Paleface has sadly left us and I have the pictured skywalker. Post #2127

Thank you, it makes sense. I fear just putting rudder on a Y might be too much, what do you think? I'd feel more comfy having rudder delicately laced in, like 25-30 %... no?

Just use mechanical adjustment to get what you need. 20-30% seems about right. I have roughly 1/2 inch either side, maybe a little more. This is at full aileron which I NEVER use in flight. I only use full ail/rudder on take off to help track.

Where is this? Beautiful scenery.
What camera? Not really impressed with some of the artifacts and the blemish in the upper left.
Not a gopro is it?
Do you have a separate camera you look through?

this is my beautiful city, which is called Florianopolis, located in the state of Santa Catarina in southern Brazil, currently one of the best cities to live in Brazil!

I'm using the gopro, and the defect in the left corner is that the lens is broken

I use two cameras too!
