These are on You Tube also but I think the vimeo videos are a bit clearer, just let them que up before you start. ~ Robin
I did something similar with my Icon A5, I had my contour Cam in my Icon and was following my friends Icon.
Not easy to say in view when its not real FPV with goggles but it gives a different perspective.
I want to do it with the beaver but my Beaver in front of the camera this time

This was my second attempt with the gopro on the plane. I removed the top hatch and built a replacement out of light ply and used two reusable zip ties to secure it to the spars. I added 3/4 ounce of lead to the tail to get correct cg but I think the camera and lead are a little too much for the airframe. It made for an interesting flight.
Good flight video , very stable .
I guess at the nose over, the top of the rudder must of took a hit.

You're welcome also. I have not found a Beaver on floats yet. There is a much larger, gas powered version on ski's but it is nothing like our Flyzone.
Yes, after a trial I added some diff and expo too to the ailerons and rudder, after that its quite easy to fly, on the Clearview simulator that is
( Rudder rate 50 expo -30 Ailerons rate 50 expo -30 )
I fly mainly on "summer day 4"

Just what I thought, by the time I walked to my flying site the wind was blowing like crazy
Oh well , maybe in the evening.
So I just played around taking pictures again ........like I dont have enough pictures already, but this time I got a better camera and I'm just learning to use it.
So what better subject then a Beaver

Paul, is there a good technique for getting the wings off? I guess I'm worried about breaking the plastic tabs.

Thanks

Hi Andy

Actually you dont need to apply much pressure on the tabs to realease the wing.
I find it hard to press both tab at the same time I have small hands .
