LIke the video.
Don't like the extended advertisement. Dragonlink paying you?
I love immersion rc product, but outside of a listing of product, that is it.
Do you own an iphone?

lol, yes I own an I-phone but not by choice... my trusty BlackBerry died after 6 years, and now their crap is terrible... my phone carrier tried to tack on extra fees for Android...

Any ways, That video is for a contest for DragonLink, The requirements is to have 3 sec of logo or a title, and I enjoy sharing info about what I use. Working on a RMRC logo as well...

Here's my newest FPV plane. Completely modular. The wings are from a Slinger ($21.99 for the set) and they come off in a few seconds. I can change the nose pod in a few minutes. One pod is for night flying and the other for day/HD flying. It flies great. Cruises at 8amps at about 50mph and gets real squishy and stalls around 20mph. AUW is about 34oz with a Gopro2 on and a 3000mah 3s battery, OSD, Dragonlink, and whatnot. I need to get a protective lens for my Gopro now.

How do you stick everything together so that it doesn't fall apart during the flight (the center section to the wings)?

At the moment I've just used tabs of velcro on the bottom. And up until now that has worked great (only 2 flights). But I have yet to frisbee launch it by myself or do any fast rolls in the air and I'm concerned with how it will hold up during that type of stress. I'm still sorting out a more permanent solution that is still easy to dis-assemble/re-assemble in the field. It's really a work in progress still though. Another big downside is the Slinger wings themselves. They tend to errr... flap... at speeds exceeding 70mph. Which is pretty easy to do with this wing. So I'm still working that out also. The reason I used these wings though is with how cheap they are pre-finished and ready to go.
