I've always wanted to see one of those fly. It seems to fly very smooth. Nicely done!

Nice flight.

So is this 3 ch (Rudder/Elevator Throttle) only with a 4th channel controls only the camera shutter? Is the camera powered from the RX or has separate battery? Is the nose wheel steerable?

it is a three ch. but it has the v-tail mixing, and throttle. the camera is supose to work on the 4th ch. when you move your rudder stick to the left for a few sec. i haven't been able to get it to work. the camera has a continous mode taking a photo every 28 sec. thats what ive been using. oh and the nose wheel is not steer. however it looks like it could hold up a building but it is in fact very week.

Like the real one when the wing start to fold up when taking off and landing. Have you thought about using a 2.4GHz camera to send live video? We did that during the field day. Thanks for sharing your video with us.
