Well it depends on what camera is being used, but there's a few places you could mount it. You could mount it in the centre fuse, or maybe under one of the centre wings. You never know, if she performs well, you could even get a camera in each of the two end fuse's

I'll have a better idea once she's finished, then I'll know what weight she'll need to get the correct CG.

Ailerons done, next job will be mounting the motor and performing some final checks. I was going to use my Tornado 3630/1000kv motor which is good for an 11x7 prop on 3s, but I'm not sure whether I should go for a motor that could spin a 13". Any thoughts ?

Well you all no my thinking "bigger is better and more power is the best"


looks great by the way. I had thought about doing the same thing with a TSII but not have the middle pod and keeping all 4 motors. 2 inboard 2 outboard.

A bigger prop turned slower is more efficient than a smaller prop turned faster.

For thrust rather than speed, go for the biggest prop possible.

Make sure you put some stops on the prop mounted in reverse like that to hold it open. I tested a folding pusher set up like that and the prop would occaisonally stick together (yes even with all that RPM!)

Nothing like hitting the throttle and nothing there!

Mark,

Fantastic idea, look at all the interest it has attracted!

So many options become possible: multiple camera locations and/or lipo stowage as well as all the motor options.

Cheers

Andrew

Hey that Vigin plane looks pretty familiar.

I've now flattened out the wings a little. Not sure why, just thought it an idea, she should be stable enough with the extra wing and fuse's.

And while I'm here. I think my Nikon 3700 has really come to the end of its days, I can't complain, she's had some abuse over the last 18 months. So I'm looking into a new camera for Christmas (Mrs Jayne treat). I need it to be pretty good on stills and video, so if anyone could throw in some suggestions, I'd appreciate it.
