Thoughts on FPV pods for the Easystar
DIY Drones just came out with a new pod for FPV (and UAV) on the EasyStar.
Several things I really like about it is there is ample room for all the other gear I eventually want to get. It's light and, most importantly, it allows you to look down.
Until today I had my eye on the ReadyMade Pod.
I do like the look of it more, but you don't see that while flying.
What I haven't found yet is a set up that will allow me to look 180 degrees in all directions. Though I believe both could be modified to so. If I want do modify something, it would seem wood is easier to play with than plastic, though perhaps it's a wash.
Both cost about $40 and neither come with servos.

Readymade is geared and uses a standard servo for 180 degrees. With a servo stretcher you can do 360. That is my set up on a SW.
