Yippee!
AP Isolation mount = Prefect!!!

Just put the finished touches on my AP iso mount for my heli (corona). My last mount was able to crank out about 2/3 clear shots while my new one can crank 18/19 prefectly clear shots! I am very excited now!!! Bring on the challanges. It is quite gusty currently but none the less I had to see what kinna wind my camera mount can handle so out I went.

Heres some quick snaps of the back of my yard. Will get somemore intresting shots later on once the wind dies down a bit. Another AP'er turned heli.

Heres some pics of my setup...took of the green floats tho as they have too much wind resistance and I get shortened flight times...will be putting on some smaller ones in the future.

(about mid way down the first page are zee pics)

Opened the case on my Futaba trans as I wanted to reconnect my shutter switch from my flap dial (last channel I had) to a push to make swtich or a spring toggle switch. Got to thinking and I just wired my channel 6 to the trainer toggle! Spring loaded, and I never use my trainer switch anyway so it works prefectly. Much easier to snap shots off using my left hand instead of using the right and bumping my cyclic around. Works a treat!
