"Derik,
What reduction and prop are you using on your Wingo and how long does it take to get to altitude? Do you know anything about the Wingo Porter?

Mayday"


Wingo settings for Aerial pictures...

2.33:1 gearbox
9x5 prop
8 cells or 10 cells 500AR (Best)

climbs fast... but weather could be your best friend or your worst enemy....

I know alot about wingo porter, that's why I don't use it for this task.

Check my website,,, for more info or feel free to ask!

Derick.

Derek; Great shot!
As slow as the Wingo flies, was that a time exposure?


R Mason Great results. Could you post a picture of your plane and camera mount possibly?

Thanks
Kirby

Here's a shot of the plane and mount. It's my only digital so I took the picture in the mirror.

WOW that was fast! Good thinking.

Any problems with the plane dealing with the extra weight?

Also, what power plant on the plane, and how does it handle the wind?

Thanks
Kirby

The Slow Stick is huge. I flew it with 1600 AA NiMH's to see if it would handle the weight. All it did was climb slightly slower. With the extra weight it will handle 5-7 mph winds pretty well. There was someone here that flew it with full size servos etc.. to check weight and also someone who flew it with a Zagi battery. The Slow Stick will lift a lot of weight.

It uses the GWS 300C with the D gear ratio. People have been geting more thrust using a 12 x 6 prop instead of the supplied 11 x 8. I will try that soon.

Light weight it will fly VERY slowly and is a good indoor plane. Has enough power for multiple loops from level and some have flown it inverted. It is a very durable plane and GWS fixed all the problems the Lite Stick had with the SS.

Too much wind but took the Slow Stick up in shelter of the large trees to try the camera shutter moved to channel 4 Rudder from channel 5 retracts. Like this setup much better. Lotsof good low level shots of dead grass! And one pic of my ROG area and beginning of the grass flyover area. For details of a diff. aproach to camera installation check

He used a slow shutter speed (1/4 second?) and panned the camera with the Wingo's motion.

I had posted a picture here last week taken from my Slow Stick, and made the remark that I was going to use the SS as a reconnaisance plane to find my lost Soar Star in a corn field.

I FOUND MY SOAR STAR TODAY!!!

My ordeal is too long to explain again here. If you are interested in the twisted sotry about how I found it. Read my post.

Plane in Corn Field = Needle in Haystack.

Still haven't taken the Slow Stick out to the farm where I have some room. Trying to get in position for pics at the church site across the street is a little hairy as you have to fly in a somewhat small oval pattern to clear the border trees and then there's the very tall church and at the other end more tall trees and most of them are over 80 feet tall so with the wind that always seems to be blowing it getas a little white knuckle at time. Tried to fly this morning and vortex from tree on climb out sucked it in enough to catch the prop and do a dive into the ground breaking the motor case. Tried again this evening and got the following pics!

On the right side is my favorite plane eating tree as it sticks way out in the flight path! And as if there wasn't enough in the way they just a couple months ago installed the play ground equipment seen in the pic!
